“Hummus to die for!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Portions are large - hummus is homemade and wonderful (especially the hummus with pesto), pita bread plentiful and yummy!

They sell Mediterranean spices but they are not the restaurants blend - however, I still bought some.

“Great Mediterrean food and ambiance!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Service was very effcient. Waiter super nice. Decorations perfect! The food absolutely delcious! I went with a traditional gyro which was big. My husband had the Spanakopita (spinach pie) and it was wonderful! There are way too many delicious options! Prives were reasonable for the area!

“Exotic Atmosphere”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Very nice restaurant with food that is not only good but beautifully presented. A good variety of Mediterranean dishes. Also the restaurant is great for conversation, very quiet even though there were lots of patrons.

“Not as good as remembered”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Went there for dinner with a party of five. I ordered the lentil soup and warm grape leaves. The soup was outstanding. It was hearty and nicely spiced. The warm grape leaves were so-so. They were nearly cold and not very tasty. The tomato drizzled over tasted like it was straight from a can.My husband ordered the beef shish kabob and it was tough and didn't have much flavor. He'd asked if the dish came with a broiled tomato and the waiter said no but that if he liked he would have one put on. He did and charged $1.50 for it. Another of us had the feesanjan and declared it okay.The same with the chicken Parmesan. I didn't taste any of the starters but they seemed to be enjoyed. This was our second visit there. The last was about three years ago. I think we enjoyed it much better the last time. My husband and I have certainly had better Middle Eastern food than they served.

“Food of many cultures”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Wonderful choice of food from different parts of the Mediterranean. Started with the hummus - very tasty. Had the gyro plate - the meat was a bit dry but the rice was delicious with a hint of I think cinnamon. Worth a trip back to try another part of the Mediterranean.
