Frequented here, service perfect, food perfect, for the quantity priced right, every time we visited from breakfast to late night. When you eat here, remember this is middle east food, good food, good friends, did I say good food :) Made us think of back home in Egypt :D

This was a lovely experience. Portions were big, the food was fantastic, and the service was friendly. This is my new favorite restaurant in El Cajon.

We are always attracted by a full parking lot and this place seems to frequently have one. But the food was just passable. Service and atmosphere were fine. When we were there it was quite full. We were seated in the "tent" section. The area kind of looked like the inside of a tent. I mean this in a positive way though, not negative. By tent I mean Ali Baba and the Arabian Nights sort of thing.

The food was certainly plentiful, but just not very tasty.

I was referred to this restaurant by some Chaldean friends of mine, I had to tell them I was disappointed The Service was terribly slow even though they were not busy. The whole place
was dreary like it is 50 years old and it looks it. Food was luke warm when delivered meat was overcooked Will skip next visit it town
