“Very authentic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

This place looks like a little hole-in-the-wall joint that normally I wouldn't give a second thought to, but I decided to try it after reading the review on here. I was pleasantly surprised. The service was good, the atmosphere ok, but the food was great and very authentic. The prices were very reasonable too (I paid $8 for a dinner). I highly recommend this place if you want to try good, authentic, and reasonable priced food in the Arlington area.

“Room for improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We tried this restaurant after reading some previous reviews. The food was good: we shared the Brika as an appetizer and it was very tasty. My husband had a Lablabi and I had the grilled lamb chops with rice and salad. Both dishes were flavorful and cooked properly. However, it appears the prices have gone up from previous reviews. The service was quite poor, as both of us had drunk all our water and had to flag down the only waitress. They do not serve any alcoholic beverages.
But they do have a hookah!

“Tasty and satisfying with great hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

We started with the appetizers sampler and nearly ran out if room for entrees. Sigara Boregi, omek houria, and hummus with malwi bread were all big hits with our vegetarian crew. The spices were delicate and flavorful. I wish I had room to try more. Highly recommend this special place.

“Awesome food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

We both had couscous, and it was wonderful. The portions are big and the food is dull of flavor. The service was excellent. Mohammed was our server and he answered all questions and did not let our cups get empty. If you are near you must go.
