“Excellent and varied menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We have dined at this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. we have order soup/salad and appetizers to make a meal. The appetizers are many and varied. The main entrees are mostly kabobs but vary from beef, seafood and chicken. They usually have a special fish available that is unusual. Alcoholic beverages are limited to wine right now but they allow customers to bring in their own drinks. Service is excellent; the turkey tea is very good.

“Good service & food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

I was in a group of 18 women, who had made reservations. They had a large table for us, which was great, but one side was 3 ft. from the area open to the kitchen that the servers had to constantly access so it was noisy at times. My food was OK, I got the couscous and vegetables. There were lots of carrots, red & green peppers, broccoli, some onion, and cauliflower - all good, but not much couscous! This was $14.95, all prices were higher than the online dinner menu. The Lebne and Hummus appetizers were very good. I wanted to take home 2 Doner (gyro) sandwiches, listed on the online dinner menu, BUT not on the actual dinner menu - BUT the waiter was happy to have them made for me "to go" near the end of the meal. The service was very good. Everyone seemed to have a good time.

“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

A friend of mine recommended this cafe and suggested that reservations were in order. I really did not think they were necessary on a Tuesday evening at 7:30 when we drove into the parking lot of this strip center. Was I surprised when we entered to a much larger area than what I expected and saw that the only table available was the one we had reserved! After looking at the menu we found that the dish we desired was not recommended by the server saying that the meat was close to the end and drying out. He suggested we order two separate dishes and share which we did. We also ordered a hummus appetizer which came with a basket of pita bread cut into triangles. The main dishes also came with this same pita bread so I would skip the appetizer next time. One of the best things is that you can bring in your own wine. They will open and serve it but have not corkage fee.

“Bring Your Own Wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Very cool little place. There is no liquor license but the restaurant is cool with you bringing your own alchohol and will happily provide you with wine glasses. The wait staff is very friendly and quick and the owner seemed genuinely interested in providing great service.
The food was fantastic and plentiful. I had the mediteranian sampler plate which was incredible.
Highly recommended!

“Surprise in Blue Ash/Kenwood area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

This is a family owned Med restaurant that is really a great little find. The ambiance is nice, but nothing to get excited over. It can be a little cold in the winter months. Nice, clean, great for adults and suitable for families with kids who are used to eating out. The menu is interesting and has nice vegetarian options. We enjoy and have tasted a good variety of the menu - appetizers, entrees, desserts. The specials are usually the best. If I had any negatives, it's slightly overpriced for what you get. Many of the entrees simply come with couscous, no vegetable.
