“A Middle Eastern Jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

We have been at this wonderful little middle eastern restaurant several times. The family's flair of good food and great taste keeps us coming back again and again. We have been to many mid east restaurants in the Chicagoland area and their hummus and fattoush and hot grape leaves stuffed with lamb and rice are the best we have tasted. The olive oil fresh from their family owned olive groves from the West Bank gives all their food a very fresh taste. The brother and sister combo are both the cooks and the servers which gives the restaurant a very homey atmosphere. Enjoy !

“Great tasting and healthy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

This is a great little family owned restaurant. The food is all freshly prepared, tastes great and is healthy too. They are a great family and it is nice to see how popular their restaurant has become. Don't be in a hurry, everything is made from scratch so it may take a little longer than most places but well worth it.

“Looking for something different? Interesting food, family friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

My close friend has taken me here a few times. The middle eastern food is something that is familiar to her, so it was helpful to have her advice when choosing a meal. Their homemade yogurt is a must to try and at the end of the meal you always get to try their special chocolate pastry, also homemade. This is family run and owned and really worth paying a visit to. Word of advice. Don't over do it if you aren't used to this type of food, it can upset your stomach. I tend to stick to sampling a little of a few things.

“Good value for Middle Eastern food in NW Indiana”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

If you want a restaurant in Northwest Indiana that offers a good value for tasty Middle Eastern food, visit this establishment. The service is friendly and efficient; the food is delicious. Two considerations: there are no alcoholic beverages served here, so you may want to bring your own bottle. The accommodations are simple, but clean. Overall, you should find your dining experience enjoyable.

“favorite restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

I must confess that I am not normally fond of mediterranean food being more partial towards asian cuisine but I am a big fan of this restaurant. This is a family owned and family run restaurant and the restaurant itself is quite unassuming. However, the food quality can certainly compete with the best in this business. My favorite is their beef kabob, baba ganoush and their humus. My wife loves their salads and felafel. But the best thing of all is their home made chocolate with fruits and nuts. I have even bought chocolates for friends from them. If you area anywhere near this area, you must pay them a visit.
