In the day of the chains this family owned restaurant has passed the test of time. Great Middle East and overall menu served in an appropriate setting. Reminiscent of Omar Khayyam's or Samreny's for atmosphere and quality. Service was exceptional.

We have gone twice in the last month because the food was delicious. I got the stuffed banana peppers which were good. They were spicy so I recommend it if you like spicy foods. The second time, I got a mixed grille kabob. This was...More
