“If you like Hummus...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

...This is the place to go. The Mezze sampler gives you a great taste of 3 appetizers (you can choose from felafel, baba ganouj, chopped salad, stuffed grape leaves, all excellent. The only downside was the bourekas, dry and tasteless. Very authentic felafel, try it wrapped in lafa. Delicious, nice sidewalk cafe, albeit crowded, but this is NY, so enjoy the unexpected neighbor asking what you are having, and whether its good. Service could be better, but the food compensates for any inattentiveness.

“Unexpectedly excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

We entered this small local because of the nice atmosphere with simple but elegant arabesque decorations and they conquered us with their great cuisine.
Basically north african/middle eastern traditional dishes enhanced with noticeable culinary expertise to reach a great equilibrium and balance of tastes.

A particular note for the falafel, best ever eaten, and for the tasteful and flavoured extra-virgin olive oil you can top every dish with.

In addition the girls serving were both extremely kind and helpful throughout the entire dinner making that an all-round 360° exceptional experience.

“Great Kosher Middle Eastern Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013

An eclectic Middle Eastern restaurant with good food and menu. Not fancy but, you will enjoy a good variety of wonderful food at reasonable prices.

The service can be a little wanting at times.

“Great hummus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Hummus is fantastic here! Chicken hummus is great and others enjoyed their shashuka and spring chicken. But the hummus is awesome with veggies or pita (ww). The hummus sampler set was great too. However, service here was not so great - not attentive. The sign posted was Waiters needed so I guess they're short staffed.
Otherwise food was just so good!!! Portions were out of control!
