There's absolutely nothing bad to say about this place. Service is always great, is a family manage restaurant. There are always really nice. And the FOOD is soo good. Best Falafel, don't get me wrong Amsterdan Falafels are good, but here everything is so good....More

Recent renovations say a lot about the success of a restaurant, so I decided to give them a try. The Chicken Kebabs were delicious, and the portion easily could have been 2 meals. The server was welcoming and the rice was right!

I love their falafel sandwiches, their hummous, and tabouleh. Always fresh and vibrant tasting. Great for takeout.

While the restaurant is currently expanding, it's still a relatively small place in the HMart plaza. However, small in size but big in flavor. We've gone for lunch multiple times and always left feeling happy and satiated. The shawarma is fantastic, as is the homemade...More

Stopped because of reviews. The food we had was very good. If you're coming for atmosphere this is not the place for you. You find healthy portions and good food at a fair price. Nice people and good food--what else could you ask for.

It's in a strip mall, the ambiance is basic and it isn't fancy. It also doesn't serve alcohol but it has a solid menu and the food is very good. The baba ghannouj was very good and so were the kebbeh. We ordered mixed shawerma...More
