First off I found a groupon deal for this shop while visiting my daughter in CS. It is a small comfortable place, 1 young gentleman as a server. I ordered the beef and lamb plate, shaved meat, not chunks. Price was ok, $8.99, but if you want it on a "little " portion of rice, it's $1.99 extra. So $11.00... More

Christina the head chef welcomed us as we walked in. I can see why she's the head chef food was phenomenal. Any time we feel like Mediterranean this is the place we choose, there isn't another restaurant even close in the Springs.

We are here a few years ago on a road trip because we are from the East. Not was so good that we couldn't wait to come back. We took two friends. The food was good but not great. The portions are ample. The staff is friendly. It is a fun place but the food is not as good as... More

Why is it in this town of extremely limited gastronomical establishments, one of the few worth mentioning is one that serves well prepared middle eastern cuisine? (I would have anticipated good steak houses or perhaps Good Mexican) Anyway, in this town of mostly cheap chain food, heart of Jerusalem stands out. This was the second time I have eaten here...

We went here as soon as we arrived in Manitou Springs, mostly based on the number of exceptional reviews. We were not disappointed. I had never tasted a meal like this, everything was so fresh and uniquely spiced. Our "neighbour" described it as possibly his best meal ever. I guess that depends on a person's individual tastes, but for me,... More

Such good food and an exceptional value. I had a plate that included several Mid-Eastern treats. As I travel, I hunt for Mediteranian food. This fine restaurant is my favorite. Very pleasant waitress. We enjoyed her ethnicity. Be sure to try the hot tea.

The second you breath in a lung full of spiced air, you know this place is going to be good! I ordered the Ultimate Platter & iced sage tea and ate like a king. The decor is fantastic and exotic, the music is lively and catchy (check out their website which plays a good tune), and the waitress was helpful... More

Great food, portions, and prices. Family owned. Very authentic as we have been to Israel. Family is also kind and generous to guests. We were given free Baklava because it was our first trip. We ordered more because it was incredible. The Turkish coffee was an experience and worth trying. I love coffee and I enjoyed it.
