I stumbled across this place a few years ago when i moved back down to the valley.. They have great hummus and lentil soup! My brother loves their beef kabob, and my mom loves their lamb.

I came back to get some hummus for a party (which everyone loved) and even got free extra pita :)

The owner is the sweetest man..he always goes around asking if everything is okay.
You wont be disappointed!

Lebanese, Mediterranean... hummus, tabouleh, kibi - all that stuff. Food is excellent. Owner seems to be always around and wants customers to be happy. Food is fresh and usually custom made to order.

I get the chicken shawarma plate about once a month. It comes with perfect rice, a slaw that is excellent, really good hommus, awesome aioli and some other goodies. Its always excellent. My wife gets the kebab or other items that are also always good. The only thing lacking is that the atmosphere is nothing special.

Great food & friendly, helpful staff. But, beware of groups Thursday night! The large group of 12 boisterous men next to us were deafening and took away from our experience. But, the server explained it is normally much more quiet.

* Hummus - whipped with a nice touch of garlic (went great with their fresh pita bread)

* Baba Ganoush - very good... fresh & not to heavy. Some of the best we've ever tried.

* Tabbouleh - Heavy on the parsley and light on the Bulgar, but super refreshing.

* Slaw/Salad - Excellent cabbage slaw! Dressing perfect. Not too tart or acidic.

* Falafel - good flavor, but it had soaked up too much fry oil and was touch over browned. Same for the Kibbe balls.

* Kabobs - the beef was good. The lamb was OUTSTANDING! It had perfect seasoning with the sweetness & tenderness of the lamb meat.

* Beef Shawarma - great potential. Our portion was a bit too crispy and well done for our liking. But, the flavor was very good. Next time we'll make sure we get a better blend of meat cuttings.

Portions - HUGE. Two of us could have shared a plate.

We'd go back again, but not on a Thursday.
