Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. I've never had Mediterranean food, but it was great! I ordered the Shish Taouk. I'd recommend this to anyone coming to the area.

Went on a Sunday night and the place seemed almost empty. except for the bar where it seemed busier. Fairly large choice, decent prices. Service was very long. My plate was not that great, but it might have been me too tired to enjoy properly. It's next to the Quality Inn, so it's an OK choice if you're staying at... More

Unique dining experience. We wanted to have the full experience so we called and made reservations during their belly dancing show. Stage is in the middle so easy viewing from most of the restaurant. Server helped us choose the right meal for our tastes. All portions were plentiful. Our table of 6 were all happy with the meals. Service was... More

Visited based on trip advisor reviews while vacationing in MN. The restaurant is a bit off the beaten path but it has a nice ambiance. The service was top notch and so was the food. Reasonably priced too

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
