If you want fantastic lasagna Bolognese, go here if you're in the area. The prices are reasonable, service is OK, but food is great.

I have been here several times and the restaurant never disappoints, not to mention its a great price-point for food in the west loop area.

This is pretty typical Falafel. You won't be disappointed. If I have a yearning for falafel and if I am in the area, I will stop here as it is the most convenient to Union Station. If you have time and an inkling to walk around, try Naf Naf Grill on Washington -- the best.

Also great baklava, and tasty rice bowl combos with sides and sauces. Recommended! I usually do delivery so I cannot comment on the experience inside.

My first time back since the redesign some time ago. Although the restaurant footprint is a bit cramped (long/narrow, like similar restaurants in downtown buildings), the flow seems to work much better than I recall from before. The menu options or generous, and the platter lets you combine your choice of entree/protein with a variety of sides/salads. Now that I'm... More

Good salads, solid falafel. I'd go back to this place again. The staff was pretty kind and it had space to sit unlike most lunch rush places in the area.

I go here for lunch frequently since my office is across the street. It is quick and easy. Not much seating but the food is good and the staff is friendly.
