Finally tried this restaurant. Based on reviews & advice from friends, we chose to go there for an early supper rather than the crowded lunch buffet. We ordered the Afrah sampler appetizer and the combo shiskabobs. This allowed us to try several items. Everything was delicious! The restaurant was not crowded at 5:00 pm on a week night. If you...

this was great because I could sample all kinds of dishes on the buffet. The selection is great, several types of meat dishes and salads ... the bread is at the end of the line, don't forget the bread ... strike that, take two, you will only regret not having enough the first time ... we went for lunch and...

I have driven by dozens of times always making a mental note that I need to try the place. Finally - while suffering through a hummus craving - I decided to check them out. If they are building the ginormous place next door, they have to be good right?? As other reviewers have noted the restaurant was crowded but not... More

I have been here several times over the past 2 years for the lunch buffet and not only is it consistent but seems to get better each time. 1. The food: there is so much variety that I have not been able to try everything. This is what I have tried: Greek salad always excellent and perfectly seasoned (recently I... More

I'm always unfortunate in that whenever I go here to have a meal, they are always packed! Rightly so, of course, but that means that the service is a little slow. Worth it, though. Haven't had anything there that I didn't like. It's awesome that they open late! I would suggest trying to find parking in the back of the... More

The restaurant is so small and people line up to get a shot at the buffet. Like really stand in line for 10 minutes. After you finally get there the selection is very big for a Mediterranean buffet. And after you get to experience your plate if you like something to go back and get more of it you will... More

Excellent lunch buffet. Authentic food (a Lebanese friend of mine first brought me here) with a good atmosphere. The food is fresh and very high quality. Highly recommend. Get there early for the lunch buffet as it fills up fast. Oh, and the pastries and ice cream are also excellent.

This place was recommended to us by our Mediterranean friends. They told us the food was great and they were right! Everything was fresh and very tasty. It is a buffet and they replenish very often with fresh food. The only drawback is that the lines are very long at peak times and if you want seconds on an item... More
