The food was fine but not fantastic. I ordered the Middle Eastern Combo (hummus and baba ganoush, marinated mushrooms, carrots, eggplant, feta cheese, olives and tabbouleh). The hummus and baba ganoush were good but not great. Ditto re the vegetables. I'm not a big tabbouleh...More

This is good place to eat in the central part of Philadelphia. Despite the place being almost full, the lone waitress was cheerful and friendly while coping up with orders and service. The food was fresh and tasty. Don't expect a great ambience.
