From the hostess and sometimes owner who greet you at the door, to the great servers, the fabulous food and wonderful ambience...always our favorite!

This was our first time at this restaurant. We were unsure about a lot of things. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about how things were prepared. He was also very patient with us in ordering. We enjoyed two appetizers... walnut dipping sauce and falafel taverna. My wife had the braised lamb shanks (mouzat) that was salvation in a delicious sweet... More

This is one of the best Middle Eastern restaurants I have ever visited. Better than anything I experienced even when in Egypt and Dubai. Everything home made with care and attention. Every dish we tried has been good. We will be back.

Go here if you like Middle Eastern food or if you simply are in the mood for an outstanding restaurant. We don't live near Mason but we were there for the big W&S tennis tournament. From the moment you enter the restaurant's calm and serene dining area, you feel you made the right choice coming here. Next you encounter a... More

The food is delicious. Everything we ordered was amazing! However the service was so bad that it is hard to even give 3 stars. We made a reservation for 8 people for 7:15 PM. We were seated at 7:45 PM, that is 30 minutes after agreed upon time :-(. We saw several parties being seated ahead of us. It appears... More

Every time I have been here the food is consistently wonderful so I thought I would take the time to say so! The hummus is outstanding. The flatbread, the grape leaves, the tabbouleh are all wonderfully prepared. Each guest is greeted with a welcome and the service is always great. It is always a pleasure dining here.

We love this place. It is beautiful inside, with a wonderful well dressed staff. They are very helpful and courteous. The Mediterranean fare is outstanding. The grape leaves are out of this world. We have been there three times now, and have ordered several different dishes, all of which have been delicious. We love the atmosphere here as well. It... More

This is not for the person who is looking for "plain" food. This food abounds with flavor and goodness. The homemade pita is fantastic. Mediteranean flair that is the best around. All so good I can't choose a favorite.

It's hard to believe this restaurant exists in a non-descript strip mall in suburbia, but it does! While dining with two friends, we tried the hummus and vegetarian grape leaves as an appetizer and both were good. My entree of braised chicken was (sadly) pretty dry, but the accompanying yogurt sauce made up for it. My friends had another chicken... More
