We eat here every chance we get because this type of cuisine uses such fresh and healthy ingredients and we can always get lots of vegetables, which is sadly missing at most restaurants. Also, these are dishes I would never attempt at home, and I consider myself an above average cook. The hummus is smooth and full of flavor and made from scratch. Their shawarmas and fattouche are perfectly seasoned. Portions are more than adequate and we usually take home the extra. Long time wait staff Lina and Rima are friendly and attentive. Hands down this is our favourite of all the middle eastern restaurants in the area.

I've visited twice, and both times were excellent. The felafel wrap and platter are both terrific. The veggie sample platter is also delicious.
Friendly staff who are happy to answer "what is this item on the menu" questions.
The restaurant is huge but it still feels surprisingly cosy.

After hearing many raving reviews, we tried it. Can honestly say, that i didn't love the hummus and i love hummus. Everything else was okay.

Last time, I tried the fish, its fresh and very delicious. Arabic style food mainly. The restaurant is filled with paintings and art, its very pleasing to look at.
