“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

We really enjoyed the food and the service. The owners are there and it really makes a difference.
Food was outstanding, with original flavors, well presented.
The only negative points during our stay:
-There was a belly dancer that night. She danced really well, however the quality of the sound was cheap. They should get better speakers and sound system. It came to a point in which we could not talk to each other. It was loud and low quality.
-The decor could be better. It is average.

“Delicious!!! You must go!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

The restaurant has awesome decor and yummy and flavorful food. I tried the tabouli, babaganush, falafel, quippes, sanduche de pollo and the baklawa and it was all delicious. I highly recommend!

This family owned and operated restaurant is always good. Nice atmosphere, good food and friendly service makes this place a must go to when you want Lebanese food. Try their Kafta!

“Yummy!”

A great place to enjoy Lebanese food. The owner is an older gentleman who is just adorable! He helps you order and explains all about the food. You will always want to go back there for more :)
