Stopped in for dinner the other night. Were not too hungry, so we only ordered apps, although there were a ton of entrees that looked really good. We had the appetizer sampler which was great; a nice selection of different apps. Jenna was our server...and while she was really busy, she was pretty attentive and friendly. Prices are not bad, and since we do come to the area, we'll swing by for an entree next time.More

Great atmosphere, services, and food. The atmosphere was comfortable and the service was fast and friendly. The food was excellent with a great presentation! Meet the chef who was laid back and friendly. I could tell everyone enjoyed working there. Would definitely recommend!

Apparently, the general manager just got back from a visit to Morocco. The food seems very Moroccan with new recipies. Delicious. We shared the Mediterranean street fries as a starter. The plate was huge and delicious with all kinds of flavorful spices. This was followed...by a house salad and Moroccan (spicy) soup, vegetarian variety plate, and beef & lamb kaftan kabob. Each was quite tasty. I could not finish all of mine, but my honey surely ate all of his. Our server must have only ever worked in a short order place or not been trained on how to serve in a nice dining establishment. She was nice, but . . . We will be back.More

We had been one other time and not impressed. People kept telling us we needed to go again. It was great and a favorite. We decided to give it another try. Atmosphere is 'ok' but seems like it tries too hard to be authentic. Feels...somewhat shabby and needs a good cleaning. We started with the soup which was incredible and we were excited for the rest of the meal. It was very underwhelming. Hubby's meat was stringy and very overdone. I had a vegetarian dish with veggies and rice (which was very dry and bland) and left most of it. Muddy flavors and not appealing. Service so-so. We love food and trying new and interesting dishes, but this was not our favorite.More

We enjoyed a delicious Middle Eastern dinner in this lovely restaurant in Kalamazoo. We arrived around six and had to wait a half hour. It was well worth the wait. We all had something different and each was delicious. The service excellent, the atmosphere lovely,...and it smelled great. The place was packed and rightly so. WONDERFUL food! Salad and bread are included in the entree price.More

If you have any interest in eating out in Kalamazoo (and not at a chain restaraunt on Westnedge), give this place a try. Everything has SO much flavor, and is never too spicy.

Walked in and immediately greeted with a smile and welcome. Tried their 10 dish for two meal where you get a sample of all their on-trays. It was yummy and fun as our waitress kept bringing out something new for us to try and the...best part was it was safe for my wife to eat!!! (Gluten, Soy, and dairy free) YESSS!!!More

We had a late lunch here on a Saturday at the recommendation of friends. We started with the hibiscus tea, which was delicious and beautifully presented with a teapot and four small cups on a lovely tray. I had a vegetarian dish, which was delicious,...and our friends had chicken dishes--all wonderful.More

Since I lived in the Middle East I must confess I have a high standard for this kind of food. From the Mediterranean restaurants I have eaten in Michigan and northern Indiana area, this one has been the best. I highly recommend the fries with...zata and spices. As a vegetarian I ate the falafel burger, tabule (just lacked more couscous) and the Eggplant dish with rice. The environment is clean and looks good.More

We stopped in on a Sunday at noon where the buffet is the only thing available... The choices were not as plentiful as I would have liked, and some of the items were not were not kept full. Also, the pita bread was hard and...tasteless. HINT: maybe you can bring warm pita to the table when people are seated... The best part? The chicken dish and the Zooroona Rice (saffron). The rice pudding was also delicious, as was the Turkish coffee and specialty drinks. Will give this restaurant another try when we can order directly off the menu. Our waitress was sweet and attentive.More
