If craving Middle-Eastern at Purdue ...

Had been there some years ago, but happily returned with my wife while visiting our old Boiler haunts. Was very pleased with the lamb biryani (tender, spicy lamb cubes on basmati rice.) A half-order with lentil soup was plenty (with obligatory baklava after, of course.) The owner/server/hostess is... read more

I like Mediterranean food a lot. This is a small place, and not very crowded, not on the street either. The food portion is big, and many dishes you should definitely try out. It is a family business, so you don't have that kind of

Food is very good. Mom and Pop place run well and some unique choices. We had a Celiac, vegetarian, a 1.5 year old and myself in our party. Everyone ate well with two to go boxes for late night snacks. If you would like your Mediterranean food hotter than mild, just ask and they will make it. Not a fancy... More

I love this place! The food is amazing and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I would recommend the hummus and the schwarma. It's not fancy at all but it's a great value.

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.
