Highly recommend this little gem! Middle eastern food with something for everyone. The service was excellent. And they make good coffee too! We were there for dinner - and I'll go back for lunch or coffee.

Brunch with family - embarrassing. Staff had no idea of service, food disappointing. Just dreadful and would never return!
