The Mediterranean hummus was Awesome! Drizzled with olive oil, topped with tomatoes, jalapenos, and kalamata olives, and feta, this stuff is great! Beef Kabob was also very good. Can't go wrong here, will be back for sure!

We had a nice meal with generous portions. The bechamel sauce on the moussaka was extraordinarily thick and the house red was unexpectedly peppery. We both found their hummus to be quite tasty. And we really enjoyed chatting about the food with our waiter.

Loved the chicken shawarma and the baklava was to die for! Although the Grecian sauce and side salad were only so-so, it is definitely worth another trip.

Being a local, I’ve frequently visited this place and have never had a bad experience. If you like Mediterranean cuisine, or would just like to experience something outside your usual Louisiana food experience, you won’t be disappointed.

We went there while staying at the Myrtles Plantation and loved their food! My husband is Lebanese so we’re a bit picky when it comes to Middle Eastern restaurants, but this was authentic delicious food, and the service was great too!
