For ambience, service and quality, Tavlin is my family's favorite kosher restaurant in town. The hummus, salads and warm pita bread are all fantastic and the skirt steak is just delicious. Can't wait to go back!

Fabulous Hummus and spicy meat appetizer with warm pita bread. We all enjoyed our main dishes as well. The owner was friendly and personally came over to check on us.

This place has the best hummus and makes humus bowls with various ingredients inside. They also have the fantastic thick pita bread, It is a shame the service is usually pretty bad.
