Nothing to write home about but Tripadvisor will do... I had probably the worse mill which was due in part from my lack of understanding of what I ordered. I tried to finish choking it down for the sake of not wasting. It was some...More

Who would have imagined such a excellent restaurant masquerading as a common falafel joint-kebab house in this small desert town. Traditional dishes were moist and flavorful, Baba ganoush, hummus, lentil soup (get the pureed), salad. Dinner special 3 pen-raised quail, moist, marinated over night, with...More

I loved everything almost about this place - the people were great, the food, excellent. The only problems wer the fluorescent lighting and the fact that they used so much plastic.

The back approach to the restaurant (it has a front door as well) through its parking lot and past the kitchen and store is unprepossessing - but don't be put off by initial appearances. The restaurant in owned by an ex-US marine with Iranian origins...More

An unexpected find in an out-of-the-way place. The entry point for Joshua Tree National Park, 29 Palms is also known for its Marine base. For some reason, Middle-Eastern folks who really know how to cook have landed there. They serve plenty of kabobs, kafta & shawarma; we stuck with the vegetarian food: lemon lentil soup, roasted cauliflower salad, and the absolutely best stuffed grape leaves I've ever eaten. Easy to say, I know, but seriously, these people understand how to spice food in a way that's both subtle and complex. A very satisfying meal.
