This tiny restaurant serving Middle Eastern food with spectacular flavor located in a strip mall is not to be missed. Although we ordered take-out, I definitely will go back to enjoy the atmosphere there. I recommend ordering in advance as there was a little wait for the food because everything is made fresh. We started with creamy Baba-Ghanooj that was... More

However, there is no explanation of that... More

A small place with really good, authentic cuisine and atmosphere. Hope they add some more exotic, traditional items to the menu. Selections are geared more to an American palate/sensibility. I got to practice my Arabic, too, so was ALL GOOD!

Very tasty food, ordered for delivery did take about 40 min but we enjoyed the seasoning, sauces and meats. Will order from here again and hope for the same results.

A beautiful little space in a strip mall was a big surprise in the quality and variety of its foods. I highly recommend their appetizers, particularly the baba ganoush.
