“Pretty good staple”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

This place had a lot of potential - fresh Mediterranean cooking - but over the past few years has gone a bit downhill... The last few times we've ordered food, the chicken that used to be extremely fresh and well cooked - was now dry and overdone. It's a goofy little joint with a makeshift bedouin tent in the back, which is really nice in the summer. If you're close by, and have a hankering for lentil soup and salad with hummus - you can't go wrong. But if you want anything more, you may find better options close by.
