The portions are small. I did not get a decent salad with my falafel. He was always expensive but I believe that more than before, you don't get your money worth. It out weighs the flavor.

Had the shawmira sandwich and was VERY dissapointed! The meat was dry and not very flavorful. Definitely not worth the money.

The place is dirty as you enter and not very inviting. Looking like posters from the 1980's. The falafel was nasty tasting. Not sure what it was suppose to be but it wasn't good. Very few times I have taken one bite of food and...More
