This is a cute little cafe. Casual dress. The food is amazing. We tried babaganoush, falafel, grape leaves, tabouli, shawarma, and a dream sandwich that we all shared. Every bit of it was amazing. Definitely worth a try.

The place is small, but that has no effect on how great the food is. We were approached by the owner/chef and he suggested and explained many of the dishes. We chose the yogurt appetizer and the taste of lebanon for our entree. Some of the flavors were new to us, but everything was very good. There was so much... More

The absolute best Mediterranean I've ever tried. Any time I'm craving Mediterranean, this is the first place that comes to mind. Try the chicken shawarma.This place is soooo amazing. I would give it 6 stars if I could because both the service and food were that good.

Very good middle eastern food stop in the middle of central west end. My wife and I tried the shishtawook sandwich, spicy fries, and a fatoush salad. All was good but the salad was amazing but a little expensive but still worth trying. If the weather is nice, sit outside on their patio and enjoy the street scene. Server was... More

The restaurant has typical middle-eastern cuisine - falafal, gyros, and more. The food was quite good. The restaurant has a nice elevated outdoor patio. Friendly (if slightly slow) service - the waiter was quite personable.. And as a plus, they have a decent selection of beer and wine. As with all restaurants in the CWE, parking can be a problem.

One of the best middle eastern restaurants we've ever been to in the states! (My husband is Egyptian and therefore an expert). Our lunch took much too long to come out (especially for our squirmy 14 month old) but it was so worth it! The owner came out and said hello and made sure we enjoyed everything, which was really...

We went there with friends who are regular customers. Its a small lebanese cafe with really good food. Hosts were very courteous and service was spontaneous. It is located a but away from rest of the CWE scene but its a beautiful spot and not hard to find. We tried a lot of different things - hummus, tabuleh, veg and... More

The main activity in this cafe seemed to be 6 or 7 different groups smoking the hookahs that the cafe provides. I'd never seen this in a sidewalk restaurant area...or internal area...and it seemed a bit surreal. We had hopes for the exotic menu, but other than the fantastic french fries, everything else disappointed. In spite of the fact that... More
