“delightful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

had dinner there the other night - great falafel (be aware of the super garlicky dipping sauce - its very good but if you are not used to a lot of garlic, steer clear).
then ordered the moussaka and the lamb on the sizzling plate. the moussaka was very good - the lamb was a little dry.
the home-made flat bread is divine.
all in all, a great meal.

“Beautiful lavash and tasty casseroles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The homemade bread, lavash, comes directly out of the oven, all puffed up and hot. The perfect accompaniment to the hummus and other dippings. The casseroles were very good also. A bit expensive compared to US, but normal for Puerto Rico.

“Amazing food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

What a surprise to find this restaurant in Old San Juan. You don't really expect to find Middle Eastern food in Puerto Rico, but this place was amazing. If I ever go back, I will eat there every day. Yum! Try the hummus and the eggplant. The tzaziki was the best I've ever had.

“Good food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Good service in Middle eastern food. The food is excellent anf friendly prizes. We order the Lavash as appetizer, it is like pita bread homemade. The chicken delicious and the lamb dishes are excellent. Love the well decorate place and so nice the waiters. The owners asking if everything was fine.
