Love this place. Prices so reasonable. Bottle of wine $20- decent with our meal. Homemade hummus & delicious entrees. Try the lentil soup- I thought it was delicious! My aunt had chicken shish kebab. All wonderful. Highly recommend for a reasonably priced restaurant in Cambridge.

The food is good and authentic. The owner of the restaurant is meticulous and wants to make sure that you enjoy your food. The restaurant is quiet which is nice so we could talk. The Arabic music in the background not too loud but gives...More
