“Wonderful Food, Great Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

A group of us walked in to give the restaurant a try. We weren't sure what to order so the waiter offered to bring us some of their best dishes and serve them family-style. We were impressed with the flavors, the quality, the service... all of it was fantastic! We'll definitely go back next time we're in the area. The hummus was the BEST we'd ever had!

Quality of food is below average and it took an hour to come. Don't waste your time and money. There are plenty of other restaraunts in the area.

“Horrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Would never come back here. The food was so horrible, was kind of upset that I was even recommended this restaurant. Please do not come here you are wasting your money.
