“Highly recomandable!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

Very friendly staff, AMAZING FOOD, great atmosphere,...
This is definitely a 5+ restaurant! The value you got for the price paying is fantastic!
I choose for the combo platter and I have to say I was feeling like I was abroad. Perfectly cooked meat, very good Greek salad, perfectly spiced...
FANTASTIC PLACE AND GREAT OWNER!

“Ignore the look of the place, the food is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Not a place you are likely to pass by and enter, but the food is made on site, authentic Lebanese with an amusing if futile attempt at making it more decorative, but the falafel, kibbeh and baklava are great and reasonably priced. Be brave and try it.

“Yummy falafel...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Yes it is a hole in the wall....so just get your food to go because it is good and flavorful food. I would never sit and eat there, not my kind of atmosphere...but a great Greek salad and loved the falafel sampler! Good eats...

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Wow! This was one of the best finds of our trip! We shared a chicken gyro that was huge, prepared fresh and wonderful. Don't let the hole-in-the-wall feeling deter you, the food is great. The location is very near Dupont Circle, where we stayed making this a convenient stop for us. It is also open very late for those late night munchies.
