I used to live in the area and frequented this establishment when they were in a smaller location. They were amazing then but have undergone a big upgrade. They are no longer a little joint but a very nice restaurant. The food is amazing. I lived in the Middle East years ago and their shawarma is the best I have... More

Love eating at this restaurant. Awesome authentic Mediterranean food. Love the dolmas and falafel. The lentil soup was too good. Will be back again for sure. The pita is always fresh and warm

The service was good and the food was good but this restaurant makes the same mistake that so many doomed establishments make. They have a lot of fixed costs that they cannot easily reduce (rent and labor) but then they make the critical mistake of cutting their food costs too drastically. Basically, there are some food items that are so... More

The service was not good. I expected so much (had a gyro) and it was so small / very disappointed. Then they got my order order....so stingy with the cucumber sauce. They charge like $1.00 for a tiny cucumber sauce. I couldn't believe it!

in the mood for greek, found this on my airline dining site. Was empty...but went in anyway. The food was outstanding....chicken charred nicely, the rice nice and light, the salad with a bit different dressing. I didn't like the ice tea flavor but they said it's persian. The patio was nice - and the owner very friendly. I'll go back.... More

The food here is always fresh and delicious. We had moved out of the area for 3 years but when we returned today the owner still remembered us, remembered our favorites and our food allergies. The servers are polite and they all work together. I love the lamb, it is so tender it melts in your mouth. You can select... More

My husband and son have visited this restaurant several times and love it. Everything is very fresh, authentic, and delicious. I recently visited and loved mine as well. You can not go wrong with anything from this restaurant. Owners are wonderful as well!
