We went here for dinner. The staff was very welcoming, super friendly, and even offered to hold our baby while we ate! Had the mixed grill. I'm so full. The flavors were amazing. 12/10 would eat again.

Very nice portions to eat. The chicken Shwarma wrap was good along with the cheese rolls. Babes and hummus weren't as flavorful as I like -a bit mild. They have a fantastic bakery with many varieties of baklava. Lots of room for large groups.

Let's start with the food: Lackluster. Hummus was runny and lacked the lemony zip, baba ghanouj was seedy and did not have the smoky flavor that comes with a properly roasted eggplant. Grape leaves most likely flopped out of a can straight to a plate....More

The restaurant has a warehouse setup. Pretty spacious and spread out. The staff is very friendly. Had the Chicken Shawarma Wrap and Falafel. Delicious!

The ambiance is lacking, and it isn't a spot for a romantic dinner, but if it's excellent food and plenty of it, this is your place! They are still waiting on a liquor license so if you enjoy wine with your dinner BYOB.

This is a new location for this familiar Lebanese restaurant. I like the concept of having several shops under the same roof including the restaurant, a hookah lounge, bakery of Lebanese sweets and savories and a separate bar. We went for Sunday dinner after a...More

This is an unassuming, but nicely decorated restaurant which serves consistently fine, freshly made middle eastern food. Meza platter is a great mix of a variety of middle eastern delicacies. I've always loved moussaka and was surprised to see it on their menu. This is...More
