Small and modest, but excellent food and great service. Our favorites are the Moroccan Chicken, eggplant salad (even if you don't think you would like it you should try it), Mediterranean salad (carrots, cucumbers, fresh and yummy). It's fun to sit around the table and share plates. Great casual vibe.

We are locals and have been going here for many years and it has simply always been superb. The menu is not huge but extensive enough, and I have eaten just about everything on the menu. I have eaten at middle eastern restaurants in New York, Chicago, Israel, and so forth. There is none better and few as good.

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and decided to try it since we love middle eastern food. The restaurant is really cool on the inside the lights are dim and the seats are really cool. You have cushions and pillows to lean up against. The food was pretty good. It definitely was not the best Middle Eastern food i've... More

From the delicious marinated salad to the Morrocan (spicy) chicken, this was a tasty food exploration! The wait staff was very friendly and efficient... and the food... was amazing! The decor was exotic and very cool- beaded lamps, low tables, low light, and just very fun and different. Prices were very reasonable, and quality was fantastic!

Very good Moroccan food-excellent humus, grape leaves, super falafel, and wonderful spicy chicken (available with lemons/olives as well.) Big portions and fair prices.

This is an authentic Middle Eastern Taste delight. On this night my Wife and I shared the Kabuli Salad and Hummus. I then had the lamb rangou and my Wife had the Vegatarian Grape Leafs. We shared a delightful Pinot Grigio. Cheers!
