Fantastic Food!

Really fantastic food with good service. It's also a good value--you can fill up on some wonderful delicacies for not a lot of money!

The food was the same as any other Mediterranean joint. The falafels need to be less lumpy. The kunafa should have more cheese, and it must not be drenched in red food coloring (see picture). The lentil soup was the only remarkable dish that stood out. That being said, I do like the effort that was put into the atmosphere... More

I'm not the Biggest fan of Middle Eastern Food..but Holy Cow!! This place is off the charts good. They do not serve alcohol, which could be an issue at dinner. We went for lunch and my wife had the Kabobs and I had the Gyro. Both were outta this world Good. Service was good. Will be returning here.

We were seated promptly and our waiter immediately brought our menus. I ordered moussakas, and my husband ordered chicken gyros. They were served with lentil soup or Greek salad! I had the soup; he the salad! They were both good. My moussakas was wonderful and served with sautéed vegetables, rice, tomatoes, onions and a orange slice. It was so-o good!... More

Love coming here when we're in KC. Never disappoints. Can't comment on the gyros or other meat entrees. I always get a vegetarian meal here because it's so yummy. Real brewed tea would be an improvement over what they serve. Stick with water.

This was my first time here, I came for my friends birthday. We waited for a good 45 minutes before we got seated. The girl who greeted me at the door was rude and acted annoyed when I asked her how long it would be, it was only supposed to be 15-20 minutes. We finally got seated, the service was... More

Absolutely unexpected. We used to come here years ago, and it used to be good. So recently we were doing a daily lamb crawl to find the best out there. It was Valentine's night and I ordered the Lamb kebabs to-go for the hubby. He told me it tasted like dog food, way too chewy, extremely dry, & tasted like... More

We ordered the chicken schwarma sandwich and the chicken kabob sandwich. Both were fabulous, tasty, but also healthy. Just the right amount of food and all so good. Very down to early people & location, nothing pretentious just good cookin'!

I knew I needed to try it the minute I walked by it and saw a couple enjoying their amazing-looking platter in the window. The look on their faces was like something off a billboard. I walked in and the place smelled like heaven; I instantly knew I was going to like it. I ordered the lamb kabobs which was... More
