The food is always fresh. I recommend all the Swarma dishes, which are reasonably priced. An added plus is they serve you complementary hummus and pita bread before your meal, which is the best! The restaurant also offers a very nice breakfast.

I'm sorry other reviewers but you got this one wrong. The dishes is it always has been the best restaurant in Ocean Springs and is not even close nor will it ever be. I understand some people may not like Greek middle eastern Thai food and maybe that's why it's rated number eight. Also the owner of the establishment Sam... More

I was visiting in Ocean Springs and took a former student of mine who works there to lunch and he suggested this restaurant. The waiter was incredibly attentive – filling our water glasses, asking if we needed anything, etc. A pita/hummus plate preceded the ordered meal and it was quite tasty. I had a daily special “crab cakes” with fresh... More

This restaurant has wonderful middle eastern food in a charming atmosphere. We had chicken shwarma, the baba ganuj, and a falafel platter. All were excellent.

4 of us were there for lunch. Spinach salad dressing was oil, nothing else. Food only fair, Really a disappointment because it has been better. Complained that the salad was not up to par and as we were getting our checks, the waitress brought out another salad, too little to late.

Regret to say that our party of three had mediocre dinner on Friday evening starting with appetizer through entree. Had better crab claws and Caesar salad elsewhere. My wife's lemon fish was overseasoned, my moms coconut shrimp were mostly batter and my tropical mahi mahi was over cooked and tasteless. Sides were also lumped on plates making weak presentation.

We were not expecting a black-toe breakfast service, but that's what they have. That and the most delicious asiago grits in the world. And their pancakes?? Damn. They are some fiiiine pancakes. Surprisingly good value.

My wife & I had Valentine's Day dinner here with her 2 brothers & their wives. We carried in a lot of champagne, which was a big break with no corkage. Not surprisingly, the place was packed, the mood was festive, the menu was limited, & the staff was harried. We noticed that the food portions were so large that... More

We stopped for lunch after my sister raved about this place. We were not disappointed. The service is impeccable, the décor great and the food was so delicious. I would recommend this place to anyone!

When me and my husband arrived, the owner Sam was right by the front door being very rude to his employee. We sat and ate trout and snapper, it was very good.
