I met my old law school buddy here today. Haven't seen him in a couple years. Man! We told a bunch of lies! Both of us got the mango stuffed chicken and, yep, it was great. I'll have to come back another time and have something else so I can provide some useful information.

The food is fabulous. The prices are reasonable. The staff is accomodating. I live in Houston, and this is my go to restaurant for people from out of town. People ask, "Can we go back to that place you took us last time?".

Personally, I always get the Shish Tawook and upgrade from rice to the au gratin potatoes for a small fee. I used to get the mixed grill before I realized that the chicken was so good that I always ate that first. Additionally, the roasted red pepper dip is a must have. Since coming here, I have learned that is it Muhammara and have tried it elsewhere in town. Cafe Mezza remains my favorite recipe. The hummus is excellent too.

They also have seating that can acccomodate large parties.

We had the pick three appetizer and shared the mixed grill. Everything was very fresh and we were both stuffed even after sharing the grill. Our waiter was very attentive and the white chocolate bread pudding was to die for.

It's located near the Galleria, which is a nice area . Our server, Rami , was suggestive and very friendly. We tried the Fatoosh salad appetizer (fresh and minty), grilled veggie wrap (Rami's fav! freshly grilled and zesty in a perfect wheat tortilla. LOVED!), spicy chicken sandwich (just the right amount of spice and flavors), and the white chocolate bread pudding (hot and savory, but not too sweet at all). Inside, there's a bar surrounded by mirrors on the top half, a small, open kitchen, maybe 10 booths and and a dozen or more tables with chairs in the center. There were signs here and there referring to expanding the restaurant. They had a cute little outside area too. I really liked the laid back feel of the place and the food was so fresh. Can't wait to go back!

The staff is very friendly. Inside it's nicely lit and cozy. The bar is really cool! Prices are good. They have an outside area, but it's too hot and overlooks the strip mall parking lot. The area though is nice. The food was very fresh and tasty. We liked it a lot and will definitely return.
