Hummus to die for. We had lamb kabobs with tasty Greek salad. It was simply delicious. How this place got a bad review is beyond imagination. Great beer selection!

Shared the sampler appetizer which is approximately 1/2 serving size of each. The roasted cauliflower was well seasoned and very flavorful. The falafel was tasty. The baaganoush didn't have eggplant as dominate flavor. The favorite was tzatziki sauce with warm pita. Please save room for...More
