We went around 6 pm on a Thursday evening and were the only people in the restaurant.

It is a bit hard to spot, at the entrance level of a not-so-great hotel(?). Basic, clean decor. The owner served us, he was kind and attentive.

The food was so-so. We love middle eastern food and have eaten at several restaurants in US as well as abroad.

Best dish was seasoned potatoes although I am not really sure if they are authentic to that part of the world. Baba Ghanoush was straight out of the can mixed with a little extra olive oil. Spinach pie was different than anything else I have eaten before. spinach & feta piled on top of a pita bread and baked like a mini pizza. It tasted good though. Gyro meat was over cooked and dry, a bit burnt along the edges, maybe re-heated from previously made food. The rice was nice. Lady fingers were ok.

We paid a reasonable price because we used a restaurant.com certificate, otherwise I am sorry to say that it would not be worth it.
