I eat here frequently. Great restaurant. On Sundays they have a brunch with some different dishes than they serve normally. Really great selection. Much more authentic than other Mediterranean restaurants. I recommend the Hummus bowl full or shakshula with spicy beef sausage.

Came here for lunch and had the veggie platter with fresh made hummus, tabouli, falafel and grape leaves. Rachel was kind enough to offer fresh raw veggies instead of the pita bread and it was terrific. Great food, better service. Best restaurant in Hilliard.

Since the opening, this place has been one of the great choice for us, locals. Their food is very good, and servers are extremely friendly. Wish they had "lunch specials," though.More
