Stopped in at this place on a recommendation while visiting the area, and we were not disappointed. Although not fancy, it was the perfect stop for a quick lunch. You order at the counter, then they deliver your meal to the table. The Beef Kabob...More

Literally one of the best meals I have ever had. The beef and lamb was amazing, as was all of the sides we tried. Highly recommend trying this place.

Pasadena is not a great town for Middle Eastern food but it has at least one good place. Their beef kabob is very tasty. You have to go to Westwood to get a meal that tops Sahara's. A very unassuming place.
