I was pleasantly surprised by the lunch buffet at Ansari's. It was the perfect amount of food for lunch. It was about $30.00 for 2 people. The waitress was very accommodating and friendly.

Found this place on accident when we came to the area for a girls' weekend. We are in love and will be back next time we're in town!! Food was AMAZING, and the wait staff was above-and-beyond nice. We ordered the Mezza Platter, saganaki, and spanakopita. All were absolutely fantastic. Atmosphere is fun, with belly dancers at certain times, an... More

My second visit was as good as the first! Visited at 8:45 on a Saturday night, no belly dancers despite noted to be scheduled but that was not a factor in selecting to dine here again. Highly recommend the "Mezza Platter" (just $14) if you like to sample several items like I do. It included gyro meat and the usual... More

Met another couple for supper. They had gyros dinner. It was reported to be good. We shared the pizza with gyros meat on it. It was also good. What was great was was the baba ganoush. I would recommend the app anytime.

The burgers at this establishment were so good, thick and juicy that I ate there twice during my week. The outside Hooka Lounge was intriguing but I did not partake. If you every get the chance check this place out I give it a 5 star kick butt rating on taste! One of the days I went there they had... More

I think this may be my husband's new favorite place! He had the Lamb Feast and I had the Mettza Platter. Wonderful food, great service. My 16 yr old son was blushing when the dancer came out. It was great!

A bunch of us went at supper time. It was the first time there for all of us. The food was excellent and the portions were good size! We were near the stage where there was belly dancing, so it did get kind of loud. For us "oldies" I would prefer to go earlier when it isn't as noisy, but... More

People in our meeting loved it. The food seems authentically spiced, and the interior of the restaurant is comfortable and social.
