Very tasty

Great kabobs and the special house rice is excellent. I believe it was mixed with lentils and it was so savory! They cook the food fresh so be patient.

When I walked in I was a bit disappointed at the atmosphere because I expected plush couches and what I saw was look alike diner tables and chairs and booths that had been reupholstered with red plastic vinyl. My initial impression was quickly subsided with the fabulous service and great food! The pomegranate juice is a great must have! This... More

Although I'm giving this place a '2', I will say that some of the other members of my family enjoyed their meals more than I enjoyed mine. I ordered a stew that was advertised to be spiced beef, accompanied by beans and vegetables. What I got was a small bowl of green stuff, which (I believe) was cooked spinach with... More

The lamb kabobs were delicious, but the rice was out of this world. We had the dill rice and the lentil rice and both were just excellent. You would never guess that a wonderful restaurant was located in a little strip mall looking place on Transit. Stop in and you will be surprised. To go options are also available.

The baba goanush is so good!! Make sure they sprinkle a bit of olive oil on top. The food is all made fresh. I really enjoy their chicken, walnut, pomegranate stew over their brown rice with lentals ~ yum! A delightful experience.
