Chanced upon this gem n a small city of Parkersburg WV. Food was delicious, staff and owner were very friendly. The only thing is they close a bit early like 8pm.

This is my favorite local restaurant!! They have a garlic sauce that is to die for! I've never had a bad meal here. The shish taouk is my favorite! I could eat here every day!
