Fun and exciting food, always a pleasure.

First time we had gyros which were the best we've had. Second time I tried the buffet and tried all sorts of interesting foods.

My family and I went there on July 28th, 2014 to celebrate Eid day at this restaurant. I will never understand as a fellow Muslim why the prices were increased to $17 for that day. First and foremost, I have only seen it with ethnic communities to increase pricing on a day of joy and happiness. Whereas on Christmas eve... More

The food is authentic Arabic food. For the amount of food that is on this buffet it's always amazing and consistent everytime I've been there. Great value for money. Everything I've tried on their buffet is delicious!!! Keep up the good cooking!

Hummus, Pita, Falafel, and fantastic indian dishes. There is so much to chose from and it is all excellent. My advice is to take little portions so that you can try it all. The only downside during my visit was that is was quite chilly inside.

Had lunch here last two weeks. Previously I had orders off the menu. Last two times did the full meal deal -buffet. High points for me were stuffed grape leaves, hummus, taboulli and falafel. There were a wide variety of other tasty items (hero style lamb, chicken, fish, ribs, kalimara olives, desserts, etc). There is a very international/local mix of... More

This place is one of my fav's in the Twin Cities. It is a greek buffet, totally delicious, and allows you to sample a bit of anything that strikes your fancy. The buffet style allows both people familiar with greek food and newbies to get what they like. Some people who may not be accustomed yet to greek food, this... More

I can't believe this was the source of a bad review! My family visits whenever we're in the cities! . Like the hot tea w/a pinch of fresh mint! Tabouli, great hummus, minced lamb rolls in cardoman and cinnamon. Oh! Baby. Friendly staff, clean and neat. And those honey buns! Yowser!

Everyone already said what I would say! It's cafeteria style seating, and it does not matter a bit. I used to live A few blocks away and ate there all the time. I never had the buffet, though. The gyros are amazing, and I have a few friends that will back up other things on the menu. Every time I... More
