I love everything I have ever ordered from Yassin's, and I have ordered everything! The food is delicious, fresh, and everyone there is so very nice! It is one of my very favorite places downtown!

Loved the food. The baklava was the best I've ever had. It is a must try. Sadly I think it was on the expensive side for the amount you get. Still the best I've had tho. Friendly staff. I highly recommend this place!

Everything about Yassin’s is great. The food was fantastic, the service excellent. Yassin supports the local community and started his business from nothing. It is supporting the American dream.

First visit and it won't be my last. The falafel was delicious, with just the right amount of spices. Quick and good.
