“Staff is terribly rude.”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

The food looks great, and it taste delicious. The only reason, I'm not ever going back is the staff. I'ved been a customer for about a a year, and twice I've been mistreated by the staff. For example today...I nicely ask for my order. I hand over my credit card, and the check out lady asked me for my name. I responded nicely and she looks at her co-worker and asked..."where did she get that from." I was truely hurt, since my grandmother gave me my name, "yanet."

“Good food and moderate prices”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We shopped at the grocery store and had lunch at the deli. The food here is very tasty and moderately priced. If you like Greek and Mediterranean food, this is the place for you. The deli also has a bakery that has some really good pastries. It's a great place to spend a couple of hours shopping and browsing.

“Middle East Meets West”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is my favorite place to eat, never a disappointment. I love Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine and this deli has it all, the shawarma is my go to comfort food. Choices are plentiful and always fresh, and many healthy selections to please everyone. The thing I love the best about the deli is the atmosphere. While it is casual, warm, and comfortable the thing that impresses me the most is that it is blended. I have dined at other Middle Eastern places before feeling less than comfortable or even welcome. I find that off putting and sad. But here there is a mixed crowd of ethnicities happily enjoying great food together.
