They use to have a lunch buffet which was a great value. It was a great introduction to Iraqi food. I particularly liked a dish that had potatoes and eggplant in a tomato type of sauce. It was really good. I went recently with 3 others and we had a good meal. I find their humus to be very fresh... More

I heard about this restaurant from a colleague. I didn't find a menu online; however found that their Baylon Chicken is one of the best dish from an online review. So we called them half an hour early and ordered the dish to have it at the restaurant. Since the restaurant is in downtown Lowell its a little hard to... More

I am glad I finally stopped in here! This family run restaurant is exactly what I was looking for when I wanted true Middle Eastern food. The food is very good, fresh and reminded me of the food I could get when I was in the region. They even give you complimentary tea which is very traditional for the Middle... More

In a small town like Lowell it is quite amazing to have middle eastern food of such taste. The decor of the restaurant needs improvement. Its not that it is bad or cheap. The owner have put in a lot of effort and money but in the wrong way. For example the red and green walls. The seating (table &... More

A fairly new restaurant in multi cultural Lowell Massachusetts, we stopped in for a quick lunch. The food was great! For appetizers, we had Falafel (a bit overcooked) with salad. For main meal we had Shish Kabob, Schwarma (the pickled vegetables really added a lot to the sandwich) and chicken with a flat bread. They advertise as a Halal restaurant... More

This a small but excellent middle eastern restaurant and a great addition to Lowell. The service was freindly and provided us with excellent suggestions. The Babylon Quiza ( roasted veal shank) was exceptional. The lamb tikka marvelous ( especially the bread that is like Naan but more biscuity and buttery). The chicken was also excellent. All were spiced ( but... More

Delicious Middle Eastern food, but different from the norm. This is an Iraqi restaurant, so the food is prepared and spiced a little differently. Dishes are also served with dilled vegetables, which are delicious. The menu is a little limited, but sufficient to meet most people's needs. They do not have a liquor license, but the meal includes a complimentary... More

Intriguing aromas lightly scent the air as you step into this small but pleasant restaurant. We were warmly greeted and seated at our table. Although we are familiar with Greek and Lebanese stlye food this was a new experience. The food was delicious, prepared to order and served with style. Our server offered to explain any dishes or terms that... More
