I placed and order to go. The owner was very friendly and helped me with suggestions. You can go next door and order a cocktail while you wait and he will bring it to you. Food was so yummy! Definately will go back.

This is a cuisine I eat a lot of and have all over the place, and these guys are ok. They aren't bad, nor great, just ok. Their pita bread is very americanized and thick; pita is supposed to be thin and light. Their zaatar...More

As other reviewers note, the ambiance is humble -- even with a television screen showing a basketball game the Friday night we went. It wasn't crowded, which was nice. We sat in one of these odd sit on the floor booths, which was challenging, but...More

The decor and overall ambiance need updating but if you can get over that, enjoy the food. Its really good! The Tabouli and Hummus were fresh and delicious. I loved the Beef Shawarma too. Don't forget to try the Turkish Coffee!

Four of us ate dinner there, all for the first time. The staff was very attentive and seemed keenly interested in pleasing us. The food was good. We started with an appetizer sampler platter that included hummus, tabouli, baba ghannouj, falafel and wrapped grape leaves...More

Don't be put off by either the location or the decor. Arabian Nights has some of the best Middle Eastern cuisine around. Everything tastes fresh. Silky smooth hummus and baba ganoush is a real taste treat on their light and airy fresh-baked bread rounds -...More

We took my parents out looking for something different. We had fast friendly service, deliciously prepared food, and lots of it for reasonable prices. We will definitely be back! My parents enjoyed chatting about their visit to Morocco with the Chef.

This place was such a disappointment....it was not very nice inside, but that was not the worst of it. After we ordered it took one hour to get our food. And then the worst part was the food. I ordered a feta salad that I...More
