When you first pull into the parking lot, don't be a skeptic. Looks more like a small market than a restaurant. My wife and I thought maybe we had the wrong place. Certainly this couldn't be the place everyone rants and raves about, is it? Walked in and was welcomed with an amazing aroma -- Yep, this is the place.... More

Some menu selections change daily and are limited but very tasty. The owners' previous experiences have brought family recipes to the food served. Both are friendly and engage with the customers. It is a comfortable place that you can enjoy lunch or dinner and order what you want as yiou come in.

I found a write-up of this place in the Metro Pulse, and was sold already by the picture of the Reuben, my personal test of any place calling themselves a deli. The write-up sounded wonderful. It took me several weeks to make it out to the Holy Land, and I arrived a few minutes before opening (Google said 10am, but... More

The Middle Eastern food was authentic, homemade and delicious. Denise and Walter's cooking is second to none. Walking in and meeting Walter is like being welcomed into their home. George's meal prep brought a perfect balance to the Reuben and lamb shawarma prepared for us. Walter was delighted to give us samples of Denise's hummus, and each one was better... More

While my husband has been here for lunch a number of times, this was my first time, and I have to say I didn't realize what I had been missing. We really enjoyed fresh and flavorful Middle Eastern food, the gracious, friendly owners who patiently described the selections (and tried to help us pronounce some of the names) and the... More

Just thought it was a Market and didn't realize it was also a restaurant who cook daily authentic Middle Eastern food. WOW! The gyro and the Reuben---daily cooked corn... More

Took my mother here Saturday. She has been wanting to try spanikopita for some time now. We thought the place was great. The food was yummy, the owners were super nice and the atmosphere was great too. I loved the sun dried tomato, basil homemade hummus and brought some home with me. The chicken souvlaki my husband ordered was wonderful.... More

This is definitely the hole in the wall and where the locals eat kind of place. Made daily with homemade goodness is the Mediterranean foods and you can even find a Rueben sandwich! Take some fresh made hummus home with you too…and did I tell you there is much more than plain to choose from. Flavorful Tzatziki sauce for the... More

A friend of mine from the Knoxville police department asked me to go eat here saying it was the number one rated place to eat on trip advisor. Wow!! It was delicious!! This was the first Middle East restaurant that doesn't pop their food out of a can!! It was all fresh and homemade the hummus is to die for.... More

This place is pretty great. You may have to wait at the counter for a bit, but it's worth every second. Deliciously fresh, homemade recipes. If you love it so much, take home all of the ingredients and make your own. They're happy to tell you how and help you in any way they can. What nice folks! Def shop... More
