We went to this restaurant for lunch. I had a falafel burger and my boyfriend took the falafel plate. The portions were surprisingly very big! The hummus looked homemade and tasted very good. The service was a little long considering we were only 7 in the restaurant. Note: the restaurant does not accept credit cards

Very good price for great Mediterranean food. The service was excellent. Our waitress was fast and made us feel welcome right away. We had the hummus and falafel to start which was excellent and shared the beef kabob. We ended ordering more falafel because it was so yummy. We are coming back for a smoothie tomorrow!! Highly recommend this place.... More

The food did not only look very good on the plate but tasted even better. We had falaffel with different sides such as: fries/beans/salads/steamed vegetables/hummus/coleslaw and pita. Personally I prefer the falaffel being bigger in size and then less oily but the sides where so yummy and with brilliant service i give this place a top score.

What do you look for in a restaurant...??? For me, the most important things are: the place has to be clean. (kitchen and outside!).this place is spotless. And i've been inside as well.(restaurants owners hate me, i request to go into the kitchen if possible...i leave a tip for the kitchen employees after my "tour"). The food has to be... More

I wanted something different and found this nice little Mediterranean place. We sat outside with the fan in front of us so it was comfortable. I ordered a smoothie that had pineapple, honey, lemon and cilantro. It was so refreshing and a nice size. The hummus was a little plain but they give you sides of chimmichurri and hot spicy... More
