Kabobs, hummus, spicy salads, etc. it's all good, although the chicken kabob and the vegetarian plate stand out. You line up to order, pay and get your number. Food comes on paper plates - but it's great. They also deliver (or you can do take out). Portions are generous, the folks that run the place are nice. And they have nice cucumber flavored water for free. All around great deal.

I really enjoyed the food here. We decided to order one of everything, lol, jk. But we did order one of every dessert and they were wonderful. I really enjoyed the baklava, I thought it was phenomenal! A little pricey, but it's a dessert, so I shouldn't order so many anyways :)

I got the lamb shank and it was really pleasant. There was hardly any fat on the meat and It was so tender. The meat just fell off the bone, literally. I mixed the hummus, meat and rice all into one bite on a pita, lol it was really good.

The owner was a really sweet guy and the staff was really friendly as well. He even gave me some suggestions to find other good Mediterranean restaurants in my area.

Place was awesome, and I will be back when I am in Santa Monica again
