I have been to this restaurant twice,and both times the food was wonderful! They have great sampler platters, we split 2 for a party of 4,and we had plenty of food. They food is fresh, and beautifully presented. I will go there every time I am in Minneapolis.

I like a good dive if the place has REALLY good food, The food here is barely ok. I will acknowledge that i'm Armenian and grew up eating Middle-eastern cuisine, so I'm picky, but it's over-seasoned, over-cooked and over-priced ($60 for lunch with App and dessert for three people!?). I've been here three times in 20 years, and I don't... More

Great tasting food, in an interesting Middle Eastern style atmosphere. There were lots of vegetarian choices. The appetizers and sandwiches were delicious and not at all expensive.

A party of 6 of us went there and even though a couple came in after us the waitress attended to them and took their order first and left us sitting unattended for a good 15 minutes. The second main dish arrived about 15 min after the first; we were all so hungry we snarfed down the first one and... More

A very eclectic restaurant with authentic decor. We ordered falafel, and it was okay, but more lettuce than falafel. Service was poor. Our visit was at an odd time of day (late afternoon), so they were not busy. Our waitress was more interested in chatting with her girlfriends and her phone than assisting us. The baklava was disappointing -- soggy... More

Food was delicious and delicate. Falafel, chicken curry and shwarma, all melt in your mouth am make you crave some place warmer with scents of coriander and turkish coffee in the air!

Three and 1/2 stars, actually, The decor is old and needs updating badly. In its heyday, I imagine the tented ceiling and middle eastern gear and motif were fine, but there are several layers too many of use. The area where it is situated, right outside the core of downtown, looks sketchier than it actually is. That being said, the... More

Amazing middle eastern/mediterranean food in Minnesota? For real!? YOU BET! This "Eat Street" landmark in Minneapolis is owned by a family that is originally from Jerusalem, so they know what it takes to make authentic food. There is a whole menu to be had, but I am addicted to their shawarma. The homemade hummus is a great compliment to any... More

Food was ok until I found a hair on it.. After I discreetly told the waitress about it she didn't offer to bring a new plate so I figured she would take it off the check. When she finally brought the check back I saw that she was charging me for it so I asked her about it and she... More

I began going to this restaurant 20 years ago and the prices have barely risen. The quality and the portions of food are outstanding. They don't have anything on the menu that isn't simply wonderful. Great ambiance. I've even been there when they have a belly dancer, not my thing, but amusing none the less.
