If in the Lexington area and you are looking for a truly wonderful middle eastern culinary experience, the gentlemen here will take great care of you! The serving sizes are epic. The taste is delicious and the service is some of the best I have had in my travels.

The place is small but nice and the waiter is friendly. The food is good, the hummus is very good. The prices are a bit more expensive than expected, but the ammount of food was huge! Not the best in Lexington, but a very good one.

I've lived in Lexington for many years and want to point out a few restaurants that have become my favorites because of their combination of good food at reasonable prices. One of those at the top of my list is Oasis. If you like Mediterranean food such as shawarma, falafel, fattoush salads, kabob, hummus, etc. it's as good as it... More

We had the Oasis platter and couldn't eat it all in 2 days. The waiter was friendly and very helpful. The kabobs, the falafel, the little footballs of meat, and the garlic sauce is very garlicky. All was delicious.

I had an early lunch here before leaving Lexington after a long weekend vacation. The lunch buffet was available, but I chose to order the falafel pita sandwich as I was not that hungry. It was delicious and great value for the price. Just what I needed before I hit the road. The restaurant was filling up by the time... More

Lunch buffet! this small restaurant had a nice friendly atmosphere, the staff were helpful and obliging. Although not much to choose from what there was was fresh, tasty and very satisfying. The baklava was exceptional, so much so we ordered six pieces to go. If I was wanting Mediterranean food I would definitely go here. The parking is tight so... More

I really liked this restaurant. Great Mediterranean food and friendly service. Did not disappoint. I see a lot of people like the lunch buffet (which sounds amazing) but I was there for dinner. Endless vegetarian options and great mezas (sharing plates). I would recommend ordering several of the small plates and just sharing so you can taste a little of... More

I have been coming here for a couple of years and have never been disappointed. Parking is tight, so come early and hungry. It's always fresh and tasty. It would be good if they had whole wheat pita.

This is one of the best lunches in Chevy Chase. The buffet is always fresh and well stocked with great homemade middle eastern food....hot and cold. They will happily point out which items contain meat and gluten if you have special dietary needs. Consistently great.
