“Great middle eastern food!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Dropped in one night for dinner and was amazed at the portion sizes, flavors, and service. They treat you like family. I'm extremely picky about Persian food and this place was FANTASTIC!

“Huge portions! Great Food!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Our first time we ordered individual meals and then we saw another table get their multi-person platter. After that, we always ordered the platter for two, which is really for four! The food is great but I wish they'd bring back the indoor tent décor. That was so much fun!

“Unique experience”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I was invited by some Iraqi co-workers to this place for lunch. Have been back a few times, with, friends, family, co-workers. Every time I have had wonderful food. I love the hummous, tabouli, flat bread and kebab the best. Getting a feast for 3 is getting enough food for a feast of 5 with left overs. I'm salivating thinking of it! Service is on the slower side but it is a place to relax and enjoy your company. They also do take out. They have a tent inside which is kind of cool if you have a larger party, to dine under it.

“You've got to go!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This place is part of the cultural experience of El Cajon. The food is awesome and comes in massive portions. My kids (all 6 and under) LOVE this place. This is a great place to bring a large group of people, too. We usually plan on a feast for half the number of people that we have.
