I stopped here for a quick bite to eat on a trip down south. I have only tried Lebanese food once before so I am not well versed in this type of cuisine. Despite my lack of knowledge, taste and flavors don't lie. I had the Kafta platter. It was really flavorful and tender and I liked the portion size... More

This is a very good deal for a quick, on the go meal at a reasonable price. The food is Middle Eastern with several starters that you can add to a platter of beef or chicken. There is also lamb and salmon, soups and sandwiches. The Kia Platter allows you four sides of your choice with either Chicken or Beef... More

I had the chicken shwarma sandwich, which was good but wasn't moist enough and it was too garlicky. The pieces of chicken were of high quality however. For $2 more my wife had the same sandwich with fries, that was good, and also a small salad. Overall this was a good meal at a reasonable price.

Great food, great service. Some customers were annoyed at the wait for food but they don't realize its because they are actually cooking it. I felt it was normal waiting time for lunch. The kaftan is amazing and they always throw in plenty of fresh bread.

We stopped in for a late dinner. We had never been before so we had to look over the menu. I had the falafel sandwich and it was good, but a little dried out. The side salad was fresh and tasty. My son and husband shared chicken and lamb kabobs and the ground lamb (I forgot what they called it).... More

I've had chicken schwarma before but this wasn't it ... Not spicy, no red sauce. The pita, cucumber salad, and rice was good. At best this place was OK. I'm glad I didn't go to their official restaurant and pay top dollar for their food.

Very nice casual place, great location. Make sure you have parking validated. Pita bread to die for, baba ganoush is excellent

We dined here recently with a large group. The hummas was good, pita was good, rotisserie chicken white meat was dry. This is a good value, if you want cafe style dining and okay mediteranian fair.

Our reception was by a guy cleaning his nails; he was disinterested . . . he also got our order wrong. They couldn't be bothered to correct it other than for a Gallic shrug. The self-service concept reeked of laziness. The food was mediocre (we had the Lebanese platter); they used plastic for everything except the platter. Even the baclava... More

We have visited this place for its dips as snacks while shopping on previous occassions. This time we needed to visit the Container Store on an evening so we had full dinners. We started with the special hommus with ground lamb in it and it was wonderful. The fresh pita was also very good. The platters were also very good... More
