Nice Variety Mediterrnean Dishes

Quite crowded for Saturday lunch buffet. Nice variety of dishes including chicken, beef and veggie dishes. I liked the flavor of the dips spread on the zaatar bread. One disappointment is that I had to buy a Fennel Cake cookie for dessert.

Second time we've been last night to the Saturday night buffet. So fresh and delightful! Drink options of coffee, tea or pop are included in the buffet. Nice staff and the owner walked around and greeted the guests while we were eating making sure everyone was enjoying their meal. Very personable and friendly. The buffet was different than the other... More

I hate even giving bad reviews, and I've only eaten here once AND I'm not a huge Mediterranean style fan, so this might not be the most accurate, but I will say my meal was downright gross. I got the meat kabobs and they were so dry and I hated the seasoning. The rice was almost tasteless. The side salad... More

I was greeted by Sanaa personally and was immediately smitten with her joy and pride. It was Friday buffet night so I bought in. The entrees were well cooked and very flavorful but I found myself in love with their Vegan and Gluten Free options, and I am neither a vegan or follow a gluten free diet. Fresh baked pita... More

I cannot find a truly good restaurant in Sioux Falls. We travel here about once a year to see family, and have tried many of the highest rated restaurants on Trip Advisor. My husband and I love Mediterranean food and were excited to give Sanaa a shot. This restaurant was another disappointment. We (five of us) tried the highly rated... More

Sanaa's food is both tasty and healthy. Very little fried, if any. Sanaa is the chef and is skilled at cooking and baking everything on her menu.

A favorite of ours on Friday evening is Sanas' Buffet dinner. The atmosphere is always friendly, usually including a personal greeting by the proprietress as we enter. We've come in work (professional) clothes and in bicycling gear, always feeling comfortable. Food is always interesting - and tasty - as well as generally low calorie.

Always a welcoming, happy place. Good to go in a mixed group of vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, and meat lover friends, as everyone will be able to find something tasty! Made from scratch, and I know Sanaa sources local as much as possible for her fresh ingredients.

We were greeted at the door by Sanaa! She was sweet and welcoming. She uses all organic ingredients, everything is homade & delicious! There is even gluten free options. On Saturdays she offered an all you can eat buffet that is worth well more than the $12.95 that she charges! I recommend the buffet highly!

Having just gotten back from a trip to Greece and Turkey, this was a surprising find to stumble into a gourmet mediterranean restaurant in Sioux Falls South Dakota. Super friendly staff, fantastic food, and very reasonably priced. I will definitely go back next time I am in town.
