Great food! Tastes more like sit down/menu ordered food than a typical buffet. Fresh tasting ingredients, good meat, great variety! Gyro meat, lamb, chicken, veggies, all the sides and salads. There are only a small handful of buffets that I like, this is one of...More

Being half Armenian, I grew up eating Mediterranean food. This is as good as any I’ve had. We had the Saffron Chicken and the Kafte Kabobs. Large meals and very tasty!

We love this place... their lunch buffet is so very good. Food is fresh and ready to eat. It's a nice spread for lunch, only wish they had the buffet for dinner, too. It gets pretty crowded quickly so time your lunch visit early or...More

If I could give it a rating higher than 5 I would. The hummus was really good and the chicken kabob platter was even better! Highly recommend this place.

Our first time for our regular family dinner out. Surprisingly good with a surprisingly short menu of food. Good food with adequate service, could have been more attentive with drinks and follow through. Definitely worth coming back to try more items on the menu.More
