I've been to this place several times in the past and always enjoyed the food--nothing terrible on the menu. As its one of the only "Arabic/Mediterranean/Halal" places around, I think those who haven't traveled the world to areas where this food is prevalent think its "divine". Well, it is average. There a few dishes that stand out (baklava for one)... More

We had a vegetarian platter and a grilled meat platter. In each option, there were some excellent items and some mediocre choices. On the veggie platter, the fellafels, the centerpiece, were disappointing. The tabbouleh salad was very good, as was the babaganouj. The moujedara was dry and flavorless. On the mixed grill, the lamb was dry and a little tough,... More

Good food... Never had such smooth hummus, n such soft and moist falafels. The much praised baba ghanoush was definitely a hit, if you like eggplant. Limited vegetarian options, but all you have is just outstanding. To top it all, the baklava is a perfect end to the meal.

MashaAllah! We enjoyed the car show out front and the wonderful food inside. Nice family setting! The price was great. Parking was easy. This is a good meal in the city before heading home.

Pizza is always great ( house pizza & cheese pizza )! Lamb kebab a bit tough but great taste. Baba ghanush is my favorite. Just the right touch of garlic!

Walking back to my parking space from the XL Center I stumble upon this great little place. I wasn't brave enough to try some of their Mediterranean cuisine (not at 11pm anyway) but the pizza was like none I had ever eaten. Huge slices and paper thin but not with a crunchy crust. You could actually taste tomato in the... More

Terrific food. Location is tucked away on a side street, but if you find it it is a great place for lunch.
