“Vegetarian Heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2012

My family can't believe how tasty the food is because there's no meat. The prices have gone up a bit lately. The hardworking owner has started a little garden in front of her tiny store. She says there will be an outdoor farmer's market nearby on Saturdays soon.

It's best for takeout so feed your family a nutritious dinner and take the night off from cooking.

Next door is the new Bundt Cake Store and behind it is Straw Valley Cafe.

“Great food, Great taste, Great people!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2011

I have been at this place many times which it was recommended by my friends.
We were happy to hear they cater and we made sure to choose the place for our next office luncheon!
I would love to see the place to grow and would love the idea of healthy food with great flavor.

“Spectacular aroma, flavor and texture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2010

You choose from a couple of soups and stews, accompanying rice, and bread and a piece of chocolate for $9.50 (tax included). The dishes are fairly bursting with flavor. These gifted ladies have a way of taking organic fare using fresh, local NC produce and turning it into a feast of Lebanese and Persian delights. The few choices do change daily, but they always seem to have the delectable Pomegranate and walnut stew. We also tried the cupcakes, yum, and they offer bottled water and green tea. Seems these delightful ladies, Mitra and Mally, consider their cooking a labor a love and I believe their mission is to get us to eat healthfully without giving up spectacular aroma, texture and flavor.

To get to their courtyard and kitchen, you must drive along the service road by New Hope Shopping Center in west Durham right off of I-40. I recommend it for take-out on the way home from work. They cater as well.

As they say on their website, it's local fare with an international twist.
There's only outdoor seating for now. I'd be pleased to see this place grow!
