This place is essentially right across from the Lama Temple in a little hutong. My father and I came across it completely by accident. The food was ok, not great. I had the hummus and falafel. The flavor wasn't as good as a real middle eastern restaurant, but it was still ok. Definitely homemade. The pita bread was excellent; warm and had a homemade taste as well. I finished the bread quickly and ordered more. My father had a veggie burger. He said it was good as well. The food was not greasy (which is a rarity in this part of the country).
The atmosphere is kind of funky and relaxed. It was pretty quiet too, despite there being a good number of full tables. Mostly ex-pats talking in a normal indoor voice. No loud locals screaming into their cell phones. In fact, since I moved to China last year I think this was the most comfortable I've felt in a restaurant. The service was good enough (for China at least).
