First time I visited this restaurant with my girlfriend. She had shrimp which taught was outstanding and a great value for her money. The waiter was very pleasant and helpful. I got the lamb and want to try other things on the menu. The mixed drinks were great. We definitely will be returning.

I was staying across the street so found this place by accident. I am so pleased. The restaurant was very busy because it was Valentine's evening. They accepted me as a single guest and provided outstanding service in finding a table and getting a nice glass of wine to start with. I had the flaming New York strip! Marvelous!

Food is excellent and the prices are affordable. Beyond that it is a fantastic atmosphere for date night or family dinners.

If you love Mediterranean food, you have to go here! The recipes and the attention they give each dish is outstanding. It's like being in your Grandmother's kitchen. There's always lots of locals here and it is just a great gathering place with a warm, friendly and enjoyable atmosphere.

We frequent Ansari's quite often - mostly because they have a good beer list and happy hour. If you choose to dine at Ansari's, be careful. The food can be spotty - sometimes tasting very fresh and other times tasting like everything came out of the freezer. Our favorite on the menu is the Mezza Platter (you'll find it under... More

The food is good. prices fair, but the place is so obnoxiously loud you can not talk to the people you are with. The belly dancer music is terrible. We once asked if they could turn it down and we told a flat out NO. We have given this place 3 chances and each time was the same so that... More

The Mediterranean Tour platters were HUGE and very tasty. Even the kids enjoyed the belly dancer. We'd certainly go again.

This is a destination restaurant. The belly dancing is classy and family friendly. They encourage little kids to dance along beside them. The portions of food are huge and very good.

This is the best Mediterranean food that we have experienced. The gyros meat was very tender and flavorful. The jalapeno chicken soup was excellent and the lettuce salad fresh and crisp. The fettucinni alfredo was delicious. The Chicken kabobs were good and tender. Best Baklava! The server was average, but was very friendly. The restaurant is a remodeled Baker's Square... More
