“Consistently good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Oh, this place is great for lunch. Falafel platter with a side salad, hummus appetizer. YUM. And servers are always friendly. The only thing they could maybe improve on is the pita bread, it is thin and tends to get dry and hard after it cools down. Not that that stops me from finishing it...

“Wonderful flavors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

This small, friendly restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating, and carefully chosen, carefully prepared selections. The wide selection of appetizers amount to a meal alone; wonderful flavors, and a nice variety reflecting serious Middle Eastern cooking. Every visit we've made has been rewarding. I specially appreciate that the owner pays attention to his guests, and regularly asks for suggestions--just as he was doing more than a year ago when the restaurant opened.

“Terrific, not complex offerings, tasty and good to share”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

Lebanese food has many imitators in the DC metro area, and this single cafe (small, simple) is a real deal. The menu has some highlights, especially anything with LaZeez spice blend, with lamb chops and herb potatoes a stand out. Love the lubbna (think Greek yoghurt.). It's a regular place for me and friends.

“Worth a detour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

This very small restaurant tucked away in the upper reaches of Norfolk Avenue is well worth a visit, because the food is always fresh and really zesty. The cuisine is Lebanese/Mediterranean, with delicious kebabs and great salads. Plenty of choice for vegetarians ....the 10 appetizers, including fava bean saute, fettoush and tabbouli all have plenty of garlic, lemon and cilantro and are fresh to the palate. The house dressing is particularly good, with a garlic and chilli bite.
For meat eaters I recommend the 'Sultan', which has the grilled lamb and chicken kebabs, mediterranean-style potatoes or saffron-style basmati rice, accompanied by grilled vegetables.....but there are many different entrees to choose from.

You can sit outside or in...there are six or seven tables under yellow parasols on the pavement. In summertime, you might get a glimpse of the open-air cinema show at the end of the street, from your table.

Bon appetit!

“One of my favorites in Bethesda”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

In my opinion this place has the best Mediterranean food in the area. Their kebabs are very well made, are great tasting and come in generous portions. Service has always been excellent as well.
