Great food, not so great ambiance. Less formal than El-Basha but better food. Very reasonable prices. This is to Middle Eastern cuisine what Westborough Korean Restaurant is to Korean cuisine.

Not as good as I expected, based on other reviews. Everything we ate was just ok, nothing was great. Chicken swarma(sp) was too dry and the side sauce had too much garlic. Humus(sp?) was boring.

I stopped in there after I did a search of best falafel in metrowest MA. UMR was just west of were I was going to be. It is sort of hidden next to Jo-Ann Fabrics & The Christmas Tree Shop in a small plaza. This is the same owner who use to run a deli out of there until 2... More

Super friendly staff, and delicious international food. My only complaint is that it's hard not to eat too much, everything is so tasty! Great for take-out.

The restaurant's look is nothing to worth mentioning, clean, simple and dated, like a diner for seniors, built in 1992. However the food was great! We got falafel wraps, burgers and shawarma. We've eaten a lot of falafel and really enjoyed these. So happy to finally have a good middle eastern place nearby. The staff are super nice and very... More

We tried the sampler with hummus, grape leaves and falafel as an appetizer, yum! For the main course I had the beef shawarma platter and he had the gyro. I also enjoyed a delicious Turkish... More

This was our first time at this little deli type restaurant but not our last for sure. The food was outstanding. Just like home cooking. Husband said it was better than his mom's. Just a little tiny place but made a big impression. Extensive menu but the owner was happy to accommodate any changes you wanted and even managed to... More

Visited recently. Two of us had chicken peanut rollups and the third had chicken shawarma platter. Also ordered their Mediterranean salad which was large, fresh and had a flavorful lemon based dressing. Best salad I have experienced in quite some time. The rollup, shawarma an even the french fries were excellent. Hummus was delicious. Every item home-made and the owner... More

The staff is good. Tried couple of items. Quality of food not as expected. Bland taste. Rice under cooked. Wouldn't go there any more.

Thank S A
