“Not authentic.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We ate with a group of ten - people who had lived in Turkey and another who had lived in Jordan. The food was not authentic. It was just okay. The baklava was not good. The hummus was good. The service was good.

“Good Middle Eastern Food - Casual - Inexpensive”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

Ate here with family in May 2012. Management appears to be making a concerted effort to create an atmosphere that is welcoming to people of all backgrounds. I ordered a vegetarian platter that included standard Middle Eastern fare (falafel, hummus, etc.). That, and the freshly prepared bread, were very good, and it wasn't terribly expensive. Wish we'd had room for desserts, as they looked good. Thumbs up. I would go back.

“I felt like I was back in the Med!”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

So pleased we tried this place. Staff were so friendly and couldn't have done more for us. We had the mixed for 2 plus some falafel and it was all so good - there were 3 of us (1 child) and the mixed for 2 would've been enough.
Hummus and Baba Ganoush were wonderful. We will be back.

Reminded me of restaurants we went to when I was a kid living in Cyprus.

“not-so authentic but good food anyway”
Reviewed December 18, 2011

food is good and prices decent, just expect to see in the menu stuff like shaorma wrap with french fries. This restaurant seems to be willing to give up authenticity for some extra profit. I wonder when will they serve Mac n' cheese as well. If you're a frequent guest of middle-eastern/mediterranean restaurants you will not be impressed. If not, you'll probably like it. Not a big variety of dishes. Hookah bar next door.
