This is one of my favorite places to go for middle eastern food. The staff is great just like the food. Large portion sizes means you will be bring some of what ever you order home. You cannot go wrong here.

This restaurant makes the best humus I've ever tasted. Their lamb chops are also great. I really liked the atmosphere and the service and will try to come back again whenever in Chicago.

Out of the many Mediterranean restaurants I've eaten at in Chicago, or the Chicagoland area, this by far my favorite. I generally order the lamb chops and it's always cooked to perfection.

Really nice decor and the waitresses and waitress costume were really pretty. The food was good but now they have limited the food quite a bit for the price they are charging

Had a surprise birthday party for my husband ... Some people were coming in a little later and the manager was ready to kick us out. He was yelling at us in front of the guests... Extremely embarrassing. Then.. On top of everything, the lady taking down names ruined the surprise by telling him "oh you are here for the... More
