Three of us that traveled to Israel, so we ate the real deal, liked the food very much. We plan to go back.

To sum up my experience: out of nothing the owner asked me what my religion is and I said nothing. The he said "I feel sorry for you"! First why do you ask such a moronic question from someone whom you do not know and...is your customer? And how the hell you feel sorry? People should be sorry for you with this attitude toward life.More

Not impressed, going to give it another try . Did not like the buffet, very limited and meat dried out. Usually love this type of food, so will order off menu next time.

The meal was well prepared and delicious. Best Hummus ever. Middle Eastern food prepared by the owners wife. We plan to go back. Want to try the buffet as well. Highly recommend. The restaruant is not visible from the street and it behind the market....All four of us were pleased and plan to go back. Three of us traveled to Isreal and were looking for a place that had authentic Mediterranean food. We found it! Yea!More

This restaurant is hidden in the back behind the market. From the street it doesn't look like much, but the inside of the restaurant is really nice. The food is amazing. They have homemade hummus and pitas. Greek middle eastern food.

It's worth trying to find it- it's around the side of a strip mall across from O'Charley's and the sign is not that easy to read. The food was made fresh for us and we had one of the best meals ever! We picked out...several appetizers and a main dish, then shared. Plan for a long stay - it is not a fast service, in and out kind of restaurant. The babaganoush was so fresh and had extra flavors and bits of other fresh veggies. The flat bread cheese appetizer was so tasty. The meat balls and the lamb schwarma were divine! We have been back twice within a week! It's worth the wait.More

Nothing less can be said about this place.We reached even before it was open but they open the restaurant for us . The server, Ahmad was polite and friendly . We loved the food - almost everything we ordered was tasty. The hummus, the gyros..., the lamb and beef shawarma . The pita bread was fresh and delicious . I personally would recommend the hummus- delicious 👍🏻More

Discovered this little hidden gem shortly by accident. The restaurant does not face Memorial Blvd. It is around the side of the building. It is lovely. The atmosphere is wonderful and the service was superior. Our server was Seif. He was amazing. Now to the...food...you have got to try this place. We had the Chicken Shwarma Platter and it was delicious. The chicken was juicy and tender, the tahini salad was so flavorful and the basmati rice was great. We had the garlic sauce and the yogurt sauces and they were so yummy. I asked for a sample of the hummus. I tell you this, that was undoubtedly the smooooooothest hummus I have had. The taste was amazing. The pits bread was very light and tender. I cannot wait to go back. Best meal in a while!!!!!More
