First time visit. Off the beaten path. It's in West Lafayette and not Lafayette. Small place so you are sitting in top of one another and don't have privacy in your conversations. Windows not kept clean, tile and grout appears dirty due to age. We ordered based on another review that raved about two different items on the menu. First... More

Delicious food made with fresh ingredients. Best lamb ka bobs I've had in a long time. Very good falafel as well. Atmosphere is unimpressive therefore I recommend take out.

I've eaten at Blue Nile a dozen times and their food is consistently awesome. It's a small place, within walking distance to Purdue's campus, and family run. When you walk in, family members will likely be sitting around the front. Just walk past them and someone will show you where to sit. The staff is extremely friendly and efficient. At... More

The food is good. However we were told 10 mins after we ordered the lamb birayani that the lamb birayani is out. Sadly, we had to change to other stuff. The waiting time is a little bit long.

This place has no atmosphere and it completely amateurishly run. When we were there the owner's family was having a get together outside with relatives. Attention was not completely devoted to the customers. It had no sense or feel of professionalism. The place looked messy and unorganized. It wasn't super clean at all. The table covering was old oilcloth. That... More

Try the combination kabob with extra hummus and pita. Feeds 2 hungry people and will be on your must have list every time you visit. Humble restaurant off the beaten path, exceptional service, dirt cheap. Love it !

Good Mediterranean food most of the time, although it is possible to have a bad meal or slow service if you hit this place at a bad time. I sometimes take out-of-town guests here for lunch, but it doesn't quite clear the bar if you are looking for something special.

We walked in sat down and a lady stuffing her face gets up and starts yelling , no no no you have to sit there and puts us in at this dirty table with a tacky sticky plastic table cover. The waitress comes to us and slams the menus down and leaves and comes back 2 minutes later and is... More

Tucked away on a side street near campus. Good prices. Good mediterranean food. Service and decor could slightly improve. Love the smooth, creamy hummus.

Everything here is straight out of a Pakistani/Iranian/Jordanian kitchen... and it's good! I adored the Baba Gahnoush, and my Chicken Biryani... my eating mates did feel some of the dishes had too many uncooked onions, however. Note: The portions are huge - I ordered a 1/2 Chicken Biryani and it was a normal dinner plate size... completely full.
