Wow, Oren's is so great. It is reasonable, clean, so yummy and different. A nice break from the usual University Avenue food. You can't go wrong here. You can order something light or heavy and it will always be a good meal. It's also amazing that this place is so much more affordable than Evia and just as good in my opinion. Also, it's open until 11 which is a plus!

Needs to be checked off if in the Palo alto area. Fresh & hearty food at a reasonable price. The breads are something... the warm chickpeas on a sea of hummus is bliss. Don't miss the mint lemonade!

The food is exceptional, and the service is on top of things and friendly, which I congratulate them for because the place is so PACKED. The only problem I'd say is that there doesn't seem to be enough space for everyone that wants to dine, and you may be in for a bit of a wait if you don't want to sit at the bar or front little counter area. All the same, everything we ordered was fresh and delicious. Probably the best hummus I've gotten at a Mediterranean restaurant anywhere, and the falafels and meat are exceptional as well. I will be returning very soon.
