Good food, interesting decor, staff either lost or there is a language barrier. The hummus was great, the bread nice and hot, tasty too. The lamb was cooked perfect but SALT, wow! The dessert was excellent.

We were greeted kindly, served promptly, given good menu suggestions, and didn't break the bank. Most imprtantly though, of course, was how great the food tasted! We've been here before for banquets and always had a great time.

Everything was good until I order my main course .It was sea bass kebab. It tasted like ammonium. It was horrible. Before you order make sure the fish is fresh. Ammonia smelling fish is definitely a reason to send the dish back.

The menu is a little bit of everything, all of it very good. Worth a trip when you are on Staten Island. Try the Quail.
