Was a great lunch spot! Service was good and very quick. I will say it was a little pricey for lunch. Only had one entree and a side of Israeli salad and $25. otherwise, pretty good.

Back after a couple of years; the food is still very good and plentiful. Adana kebab was nicely spiced, and came with large portions of rice and salad. And the prices are still good for the quantity and quality.

The prices here are very good for the size of portions. The food was well seasoned and hot when it arrived. Others at our table had chicken shwuarrma and beef/lamb kabob which I tasted and it too was excellent. Ambiance was OK, nothing special. The Humus was good but not special. For the prices and because kosher meat is a... More

A no frills restaurant with friendly service and the freshest, tastiest Middle Eastern food this side of Tel Aviv. Felafel plates were made to order. The chick pea salad as well. Finished with the walnut and honey film pastry. Can't wait to return to try the Shawarma or Souvlaki.
