This place has been a great introduction for me of Mediterranean food and cuisine. Every time I come here I am able to try something new and find something tasty to enjoy. The humus here is quite delicious. I also highly suggest the rose flavored pudding. It is so light and such a wonderful way to finish off a meal.... More

I'm a repeat customer, I've stopped here every time I've gone to Reading and the food is of very good quality. This last visit was an eye-opener of the unpleasant kind as we saw the major price increases since our last visit! Now, don't misunderstand, the food was still of very good quality and the portions were of acceptable size... More

Travelling with a vegetarian colleague to Reading PA and found this "Mediterranean" restaurant which I would have called Middle Eastern. We had a lovely meal with bold dynamic flavours. The Lebanese style food was some of the better I have had, however I would have normally had meat as well...maybe I should stick with vegetarian in future. The decor could... More

This is a hidden gem that you should not miss. Every single thing is wonderful, and it is BYOB. I have gone there twice in the last week - it is that good.

This is a great go to restaurant because the food is always great. A terrific vegetarian platter brings my wife and I back time and again. I have always found this restaurant to be a dependable great place to get lebanese food that tastes great. Great simple hummus, falafel, cucumber dip, cheese sticks, and parsley salad are a few of...

Lebanese owner "Alex" is hands-on in the kitchen and serves a wicked "baklava"...IF you have room after his delicious kabobs, minimal grain tabouleh, homemade hummus and baba ganoush and other delicious mid-East goodies.. It is one of the few places in our area that regularly offers lamb dishes. The décor is charming, service is gracious and friendly, and they are... More

We drove here from Philly. Brenda was a very competent, helpful waitress. Alex, the owner, was very attentive. The food was amazing not limited to the: shwarma, falafel, pita,kabobs, hummus, baba ghanoush and an appetizer plate. We will come back for the belly dancer on Friday night.

I've been here at least 8-10 times over the past 3 years. The food is always incredible, but the service can be slow just based on wait staff. However, the food itself comes out pretty quick. Do yourself a favor and get the bruschetta. It's out of this world for flavor! Im a foodie, and it's life-changing. The fattoush, shawarma,and... More
