Great food that maintains its authentic eastern Mediterranean influence. Great selection of ethnic and American fair. Be sure to try the slovaki wrap with falafel or any of their salads; for around $7 you get a huge wrap that tastes great and won't bog you down later like a burger or burrito. One minor gripe is that there is often... More

The place is a dump. The kitchen is disgusting. The smell inside just gave me nausea. I really don't know how people can eat in there.

Recommended by co-workers, this place has good food, fresh ingredients, fast service, and good value for the price. I will go back next time I'm in town.

The service is individualized. The staff are attentive. Every wrap or salad was consistently well-made and tasty. We went back twice during this vacation. We hope that business continues to be good, so that the owners can fix the wallpaper and attend to the overall appearance, but regardless, we love the food which is made fresh, well-seasoned, and never disappoints!

Delicious dolmas, odd hummus (weirdly spiced), delicious beef, chicken & lamb. Good baklava. Good choice if you don't feel like going into Newport. They will make the items exactly as you ask - which is great when feeding particular children who want plain!

Fantastic falafel and shwarma wraps! Pick your heat level and have them "put everything on it" and the mixture of flavors never fails to please. Reasonable price for a huge wrap. A little off the beaten trail, but worth the trip. Do not miss it.

Doesn't matter how you spell it, they've got them here, AND THEY'RE GREAT! Chicken, beef, or lamb. I just can't give it 5 stars overall for two reasons: 1. Since there's no table service and the place is way overdue for some cosmetics; 2. The guy that took my money and gave me change was still wearing the plastic gloves... More

Excellent food and menu. The cooks are friendly and knowledgeable. I think most people would be more. Comfortable with take out.look carefully for the sign or you may drive past it.

At first it may seem like a middle eastern restaurant next to walgreens and Newport Mart, but they actually have quite the variety! Falafels, all that good stuff. But my favorite meal here is actually a good restaurant. Good food and service. only issue is parking.

Generic fast food joint that serves very good quality and reasonably priced wraps and general Mediterranean foods.
