Restaurant details

I was worried that when the original owner sold this little jewel a few years ago. No worries! The food is even better. The new owner has expanded the restaurant so it is larger and not cramped. The atmosphere is clean and pleasant.
The food is, without a doubt, the best mideastern fare that I have eaten outside of an Arabic kitchen.
The lamb kabobs are tender - very tender - and cooked to order. The shish tawook is seasoned perfectly. Excellent hummous. The restaurant even grilled vegetables on the open flame.
Be sure to try the garlic sauce that is served with everything. It's really good.

The best middle-eastern food I have ever had.
From garlic-butter spread + freshly-baked pita, to succulent kebab, it was much, much better than I have ever had.
I know this area has a lot of ME joints, but this one is probably the best.
I now have something to look forward to when I visit otherwise not so impressive part of the country.

Service was friendly and good. Portions are enormous and two can easily eat with one plate; the food is excellent. Would return anytime

Do you ever miss the days of La Shish then look no more. The original owners of this restaurant were cooks there and when they sold it to the new owners they passed their recipes down to them.. YUMMY!
