Everything we got was delicious!! We sat on the porch. The staff was attentive and helpful. We are a family with many allergies and food requirements and we had no problems. My only issue was that the bathroom was in need of some serious cleaning.

Great place for lunch or dinner. We ordered Chicken with Spicy Date Sauce which came out with a side of Rice and Pita. The food was spot on! Seating is limited, so there may be a wait when they are busy.

I was totally naïve about this type of food. My server was kind and patient while I described my food preferences. I particularly like chicken but don't like spicy foods. He suggested a menu selection which I really liked. The ambience, service and food were...More
