My fiancée had the grilled veggies. She enjoyed it very much. The rice that came with it was flavorful. I had to stop myself from eater by it all. The restaurant itself was a nice quiet restaurant good for a nice conversation.

We enjoyed this fine cafe for lunch. Very convenient to City Hall. Small but attractive. The owner himself greeted us and made recommendations. We had grilled lamb kabob and grilled marinated chicken. Served with rice and grilled vegetables. Wonderful.

Small middle eastern restaurant. We love the food which is very tasty and carefully presented. We also love the drinks, especially yaran, a yogurt drink, imported. They also have nice selection of juices. Highly recommended for a family or friend outing before or after theatre....More

A close walk off Philadelphia's Avenue of the Arts and City Hall, excellent food, worth repeat visits. The mixed grills are tasty and so is the moussaka. I just wish the portions were bigger!
