Mediterranean Delight

I work near this small quaint restaurant. I treat myself to their food on a regular basis. They cook everything from scratch and their platters are almost big enough to share. Your taste buds will enjoy this delightful restaurant. This is privately owned and not a chain.

This is not a fancy restaurant - almost a luncheonette - but the food is good and very inexpensive for a downtown Philadelphia location. There were many locals and university students dining the night I was there - and it was noisy and friendly. The food is middle eastern and there is a nice variety. Again, we wanted something quick... More

We enjoyed lunch here today. The assorted appetizer plate included creamy hummus, tasty baba ganoush, marinated mushrooms and carrots,a falafel, a warm grape leave and good tabulhli. We shared a koftka pita that was delicious. The service was efficient and pleasant.

Delicious middle eastern food. Not a fancy place but the food is awesome. I go there for lunch each time I visit Philadelphia. The restaurant has been around for many years and is still as good. Highly recommended.

We were so pleasantly surprised to find this little Lebanese restaurant so close to the Holiday Inn. No booze but the quality of food and the sheer value was outstandinng. We started with an appetizer of tabula which was as fresh as fresh could be. I enjoyed a mixed grill while my wife enjoyed chicken shawarna. Very nicely flavored but... More

Very casual middle eastern restaurant near Broad and Walnut streets serves very tasty food. Great platters of grilled shrimp and lamb kebab included grilled vegetables, salad, tasty seasoned rice and the best hummus we ever had-- smooth and light. Platters were in the 13-15 dollar range. Do not miss this terrific little place.
