We had 10 people in our group, 6 kids from 10-14 years of age. We went during brunch and could order brunch or lunch. Kids ate pancakes, adults ate Mediterranean food. Best of both worlds. Server was great!

Consistently the best place for Middle Eastern food in Asheville. The decor and service can be improved but the quality of the ingredients and food is second to none!

Dined with my wife & a friend. Food is fairly authentic Middle East which we love. Tasty, well presented and perfectly cooked. Kibbeh, stuffed vine rolls, shanks, dips, all enjoyed. Service was very good and prices fair. Loved our experience.
