Great, great place to have Arabian food, well sized dishes with amazing flavors and good prices. We shared the vegetarian plate and it was amazing! Looking forward to be back.

Had not been in for a few years but just as good as ever. Great appetizers, kebobs and service. Great location in Albany Park. This place is BYOB but there is no corkage fee.

Plesant find that saved us from a long wait at a nearby Persian restaurant. Good food at reasonable prices. Great shawarma, great coffee and lemonade, and great 3 types of baklava.(though small). Will go back!
