A small Lebanese restaurant in downtown area Syracuse with just 4 tables. The gyros is good but a little bit dry. I like the Greek version a little more but I still enjoy this one. The Falafel wrap was a first time try. Did not know it was a cold wrap. Interesting and tasted not bad. Can't compare to others... More

I had the most delicious hummus and pitas and a gyro. Very tasty on both accounts. Service was good. Eat in and take out.

The people there was really kind. Food was delicious but it was a bit overpriced. All in all, I would highly recommend this place.

Wonderful tasty authentic Lebanese food, best in Syracuse. The hummus, kabob combination, and baklava were all authentic. It is a small place and they make the food to order so plan ahead. I ordered online and they delivered to my hotel nearby.

Ok. So we started with the wrong foot. They had a catering event and my first 2 choices were not available. Server was very friendly and looked truly concerned about my order not being available. The food made up for it. Fantastic seasoning and taste. Marination of the chicken was perfect. The lentil rice combination felt homey. Salad and humus... More

I had found this place from the Diners, Driveins and Dives web site. We were passing by and decided to stop for lunch. It is a small place, mainly for takeout. I ordered a Kefta wrap and my wife ordered a falafel wrap, for 3.50 extra you get a drink and a side. I had a fatoush salad, my wife... More

Stopped in the week we were dropping off our son at SU. Was in the mood for Greek/Arab food, so gave this shot. The decor felt scattered, with large screen TV with a baseball game on, dark walls and what felt like less than advantageous use of the space. Our waitress was good, pleasant but food took a long time... More

Saw this place on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives so I had high hopes for it. Unfortunately, there was nothing special about the food. The gyro was gorgeous but unremarkable. The spanakopita looked pretty but needed seasoning. The babaganoush also looked pretty but tasted the same as any store bought container would. The salad was fine, but who really can fail... More

Although it's small place, the food was really yummy and the price is really good. We ordered chicken and kafta kabob.
