“A Treasured Gem”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

We are regulars, dining here dozens of times. It us wholesome, healthy, and real, and deserves high praise for good food with low prices. There are so many good items to recommend, from the homemade lentil soup to the chicken plates with tahini and hummus. The falafel balls are delicious and the salads --- amazing! They could offer a few more drink options. The gal who takes the orders could be more friendly and personable, as the owner says very little and his co-chef says less. The place misses on personality and service. But that's not why you go. You go for delicious healthy food at a great price.

“Best value and quality Middle Eastern Mix”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

The place is small and no frills, but food is excellent. We ordered Tofu Thai curry and Salmon Moroccan Tgine. The portion is generous. You find many vegetarian menu as well as meat/fish with exhotic spices.
It is amazing that the restaurant can provide so many items in such a small kitchen. Highly recommend !

Very tasty and healthy food, in a quiet little place and friendly staff. Great tea selection and occasional specials, the stir friy with salmon is my favorite

“Funky, different, I LOVE THIS PLACE”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Its tight small. But the food is sooo well prepared and delicious. Their curries, noodles, brown rice. Delightful for vegetarians and carnivores alike. Their sauces are so flavorful, the portions are huge. Its just wonderful. I love their tempeh, their curries, their wraps. Made fresh, in front of your eyes. Vegan? No problem! Want chicken? They have it. So good!

“Funky but very good”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Like a trip back into the 60's, blended with a middle east menu, complete with herbal teas, felafel, tahini, hummus, as well as whole wheat pastas with organic items like salmon, cod, chicken, tempeh, and tofu.
Food is really good, the service is friendly, and the prices are quite reasonable.
