Great little restaurant across the street from the San Juan Marriot - in a little alley. The staff was very nice, very good service and the food was really good. The Turkish bread - best bread ever.

The food was just so delicious and authentic. We had the Lentil soup which was excellent. We couldn't get enough of the hummus with the lavash bread. The main entree portion sizes are generous. Lots of options for vegetarians.
