I love the Egyptian food that is always fresh and unusual. The service may not be the most friendly but it's worth it and the place is comfortably spacious. Highly recommend or the food and experience!!

You walk in the door and feel like you're in another world. It's wonderful. The decorations make you feel like you could look around for an hour like at a museum they are so lovely. The servers are friendly and helpful with the menu, if you need help or need to know what things are, I recommend trying everything eventually!... More

We love this restaraunt. The food is always of excellent quality, and the ambiance is also excellent. Could wish for more wine options, but otherwise we've never had a complaint of any kind. Highest recommendation.

My boyfriend and I were tired and hungry. We grabbed food to go. The server was really nice and helpful. The food was delicious and true to Mediterranean cuisine. The atmosphere was simple and relaxing. Next time we're eating in!

In the several times we've dined here since our first visit, we have had at least one of their daily specials. Be sure to ask as you may not notice the sign as you walk in. Each time they were excellent, whether vegetarian or a meat dish. On our last visit, it was lamb shank with vegetables which was pronounced... More

I went there for dinner and I liked the place. Albeit, my food had a tad extra lime in it but it was good. The ambience is good and it does give you a middle eastern feel.

I visited with a co worker and ordered the beef shawarma and she ordered the coco wawa. We also ordered the mezza for 2. The dolma (stuffed grape leaves) were terrible, all other items on the mezza were good. The beef shawarma was good although I had to ask for bread to go with it, quantity was ok. The coco... More
