Donny and family run a great restaurant. The food is excellent, authentic, and reasonably priced. There are many regulars/locals. Donny and his sons remember you and make you feel welcome. The baba ghanoush and the curry chicken salad are my favs!

The food is good, but this is a grill, rather than a restaurant. It lacks atmosphere and a sense of occasion: there are bench seats either side of a smallish, brightly lit eating area. The service was very brusque. This is partly our fault: we...More

Don't need to bring your own wine since Sababa sells alcohol.
