“Friendly Owners, Tasty Middle Eastern Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

I enjoy the lamb, chicken and beef gyros and their Greek salads. Fresh, good food with homemade middle eastern bread. They have an American menu for breakfast and lunch but I only order the delicious middle eastern food. One of my favorites in Hendersonville for quality and price.

“Definitely Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This is a great little, out of the way place where you can find quality middle eastern food at reasonable prices. The owners really know their offerings and prepare them with pride. There are always many choice to explore, including breakfast specials. This eatery specializes in lunch and breakfast and provides a great break from nearby towntown Hendersonville. The owners also offer lessons in Arabic.

“Friendly, tasty and the real thing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

If you love middle eastern food, here is your chance in the mountains! They make their own bread every morning and even create Zatar Bread you can carry home. It is small, but a perfect place for lunch. Everything's so fresh!
Also, they have afternoon or evening classes in Arabic and Belly Dance!

“Unassuming Site, Culinary Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Located in a strip mall on Greenville Highway, this unassuming storefront restaurant offers both American and middle eastern food at modest prices. Just why you would order American food here is a mystery to me, but don't hesitate even a minute to order middle eastern items! There is SO much to choose from that I know I will need to go back over and over again. The owners are friendly, service is great (you order at the counter and they bring your food to your table), and the food is delicious. I was torn between the Mediterranean Plate and the Hummus Sandwich. The latter won out and was a keeper, but I need to go back to get the MP next time. My friend ordered the tabuli salad, which she said was good but a little heavy on the parsley, But we are both eager to return. Special note: I eat vegan when I can, and this nice little spot gave me many, many options to choose among. But non-vegans have even more choices--including several lamb options. This surprising little spot is well worth a visit!
