A very solid Mediterranean restaurant with a solid menu. Lamb shank was excellent as were the appetizers of baba ghannouge and something else with lots of green and fetah. Interesting selection of flat breads as well. Lots of pita bread hot out of the oven. Moderate price. Very good experience. Will go back

It was only by luck that we found this outstanding restaurant on the sixth night out of seven. Oh how we wish we could have found it on the first night. The location was a little difficult for us to find and when we did, it was next to a gas station in a shopping center that did not appeal very much. I left Marcia in the car while I went to check it out because if it was not good we wanted to go somewhere else fast. The moment I stepped inside I met the owner who was from Lebanon and who talked about his love for Lebanese food. Since living in Beirut in the sixties I have never found any cuisine that I liked more, so I went quickly to bring Marcia in. What a delightful menu! Many of the great Lebanese specialties were available and many had been improved by the owner/chef. What a delightful experience. Needless to say we returned the next (and sadly) last night of our stay.

We live in Costa Rica while our son lives near this restaurant and you can be sure that when we next go to visit, this restaurant will be included on almost every night.

Visiting Blue Ash on business and stopped here on a colleague's recommendation. It was spot on as the meal and ambience was excellent. Hidden in a strip mall but worth the visit. I had a spinach pie appetizer and their sampler which is 9 small portions. Think of a Mediterranean/Lebanese version of tapas. The pita bread was warm and light. Hummus and baba ghanoush, felafel and kibbeh were all very tasty. The tabbouleh was a bit too oniony and vinegary but that was a small matter as the platter as a whole was outstanding. As good as it was, however, the star was an Egyptian-style bread pudding with a distinctive citrus and coconut flavor. Wow.

Wonderful food, cozy atmosphere, attentive, personal service. One of our favorites in Cincinnati and certainly the best in the Mason area. Consistently outstanding.
