Very tasty and flavorful middle eastern food. Garlic paste, baba ghanoush for apps great way to start the meal. I had the lamb chops which were so tender and had so much flavor, good eats. My daughter had the beef shawarma, can't go wrong with shawarma. Very good and very happy with her meal. Her friend had the tabouleh and... More

Enter through the main door and you will be greeted by 4 (maybe 5) of the dirtiest cloth-covered upholstered chairs that you can imagine. I'm talking "no way am I going to sit on one of those" dirty. Goodwill would refuse to take them. Our first instinct was to turn around and leave, but friends had told us that the... More

Was here for lunch. The food was expensive ($13 for one skewer of chicken), $7 for a side of humus. I was very disappointed in the food-- the humus was absolutely tasteless. I had the eggplant salad which was drowned in an oil and vinegar dressing and a few tiny bits of burnt eggplant. It was terrible. Never go here... More

We visited on a Friday night, no wait! Couldn't decide what to order so we chose an assortment of hot and cold appetizers. We enjoyed everything except the lamb on the hummus was a little tough and the spinach pastries which we wanted weren't available. There is a lot of seating outside on the patio. Very relaxed atmosphere, but the... More

Beautiful restaurant with impressive outdoor seating on a wrap-around patio as well as comfortable indoor tables. My favorite entree is lamb chops. My husband thinks their Hummus is the best ever. Their fattoush is especially scrumptious. I love going there with a group and ordering the grand meza, a generously portioned assortment of hot and cold appetizers. They also have... More

Have been to this place few times and waited to give review to provide benefit of doubt. Each time i noticed that while others nearby small and large places are filled with people waiting outside, this is barely half full. The waiters are simply arrogant, they act as if they dont want you to be there. Last time simply wanted... More

We went in with some friends for dinner. The evening started with the hummus and garlic spread. Our dinners were the lamb, shrimp and the Greek salad. Everyone was very happy with their meal. The staff was feindly and helpful. Nice atmosphere.

My wife and I ate here for the first time the other night. We are not experts by any means with Mediterranean Food and we found our server to be very helpful with suggestions and ideas.

The wait staff are lovely. They constantly check up on you, fill your water/iced tea glass and generally make you feel very welcome. There are large TV screens showing sports and old time TV shows. The Dukes of Hazzard were on when we visited! Sadly, the downside is the food. We've been there twice and on both occasions the food... More
