Family owned restaurant is nothing fancy but that is its' appeal. The food is good and the service is attentive. In the back is a bar with several tables. A great place to have a craft beer and a gyro or burger.

It's small in the back room but it has that neighborhood feel. The food is fresh and pretty fairly priced. Great beer selection.

You will find quick, rapid type of sandwiches, salads and small deserts with the flavor of the middle-east. It is usually full of people and has quick service. It has a friendly environment. Try their spiced herbal tea. Prices are not too high, but seats are also limited. It is a good place to relax and eat well.

This restaurant has some of the better Middle Eastern cuisine I've had in the D.C. area. We had several appetizers, which were all good, and I got the falafel and was impressed - not too big, not greasy, very tasty. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is generally upbeat and fun. Great location, with a pub right in back, and... More

We have come here a number of times over the last year with another couple. The restaurant has been around for awhile, stocks a number of middle eastern staples, such as humus, eggplant salad, falafel, shwarma in sandwiches and dinner entrees. Have enjoyed the shwarma pita wrap, friends liked the chicken parmasan plata, but the standout surprise is their burger... More

Authentic Middle Eastern food made and served by the Hasmi extended family in a restaurant of Middle Eastern decor. Recently added Olive Lounge in the back, a neighborhood "Cheers" type place with TVs and a Middle Eastern feel as well, with bar food and Middle Eastern favorites. Love the hardworking and friendly family!
