This little local gem near Tulane University has some of the best falafel I have ever taseted. It is crunchy on the outside with s deep green, moist center. The best part is that this introduction only got better with the main course. Lula Kabob is similar to kofta kabob and is my favorite. The giro meat is flavorful. Portions are generous so you will not leave hungry. There is no parking lot so park on the side streets ot catch the trolly.

Absolutely the best lamb platter (gyros if you will, but not Greek Gyros with pressed meat, this is marinated lamb grilled over open fire) I have ever eaten. This restaurant has simply fantastic food, everything from the Baba Ganoush to the Hummous to the salads, chicken tekka (omigod!) and the salmon was to die for. We went after Jazz Fest on Saturday night and we famished, all 8 of us ate every bite, 5 stars. It was so tasty, 5 of us went back again last night, wow. The lamb cannot be described without superlatives. GO!!!

We eat here several times a month! The food is outstanding and during nice weather it is the best place to sit on the patio and watch the street car go by. No liquor license but bring a bottle of wine and enjoy. Highly recommend the gyro plate!

Visited with coworkers on lunch for the first time. It was beyond my expectations. Great atmosphere. Good service. Off street parking. Sitting indoor and outdoors. Self seating. Great quality of food for the price. Food was hot and fresh.

Not sure I remembered the name of the dish correctly. It's similar to Hummus or Bab Chanouj but with smashed roasted broccoli. The pita are thin, which is how I like them for dipping. The falafels were good, The tzatziki was different than I'm used to, less dill in this one.
