With my regular Sunday lunch buddies we had a deliciously tasty selection of Arabic / Lebanese delights and standards. Attentive staff in a tastefully decorated room. We'll be back.

The place used to be great, and so we were anxious to try it again. Oops, something has happened. The food was average, the servings skimpy, prices higher than they should be. The decor is faded, the staff was bored, and the restaurant needs a...More
