I was invited to celebrate a family event. The wait staff was patient as well as helpful as we paced our orders. The spread and bread were delivered on request and generously. The hummus was the best I have tasted. Portions are generous so be sure to ace yourself or share. Although the restaurants focus is in the utilization of herbs and spices, they did not overpower the dishes that were ordered. The lentil soup was smooth yet hearty. We all took food hoe, which seemed the standard as I looked around.

The interior of the restaurant is unexpected as the restaurant is located in a small strip mall. The prices are more than fair and the hospitality is 5 star. I definitely will go back again.

We are occasional diners at La Saj, and every visit has been excellent. The staff is friendly and attentive. On our last visit we noticed they expanded the dining room which made the atmosphere even nicer. They have plenty of booths which is always a plus. There is never a wait. The food is outstanding. There are so many Arabic restaurants in the area but this one cleary is the best

Food, service and atmosphere is great. Their garlic spread and pitas are the best I've ever had. Could make a meal in that! Go as often as I can.

We had a girl's lunch here on a Saturday, and we stayed longer than expected. Our waiter was very attentive, and wasn't trying to push us out the door. Food was excellant as always, and the bread was so freash it was hot!

So what more can I say? The lamb shank falls off the bone, and is served with a savory sauce. They will keep bringing you puffy bread, and if you smile and are kind you can keep getting garlic sauce too! (they have better garlic sauce than Ike's, and that's a high bar to pass).

The waitstaff doesn't shoo you out, even if you linger over dinner. The restaurant is beautifully decorated - you'll feel like you should be on oversized cushions on the floor with it's Moroccan feel.

Always a wait - always worth it!
