We eat a lot of Arabic food and this was right up there with the best we have had. The fattoush is an must and also the hummus.

The waiter (shaved head and beard) was very helpful and the martini’s he made were great.

Will be going again

Really good and busy Mediterranean place. We had to wait over half an hour since we had no reservations so make a reservation. The food is really good. I ordered the beef & lamb kafta it is so flavorful and the portion is generous for $14.99. It was nice that we were not rushed and the service is attentive. I will definitely be back.

Probably my 5th time here, and will be back again and again for tasty healthy fresh food and great service. Tonight we sat outside. Quit parking lot, pleasant experience. Owner Omar always stops by to say hello. The house made baklava ice cream is a must. Hooks pipes on the side patio. Belly dancer showed up around 9 pm and was friendly but not intrusive. Food as always just perfect. We brought friends who had never had Lebanese food and they loved everything. Basmati rice, chicken kabab with delicious spices, cooked perfectly, hummus and pita, YUM!

We took my daughter here for her birthday, there were seven of us and the service was superb! The food is fresh and very good. I had the lamb kabob and enjoyed it very much; the falafel is the best that I have had in a very long time. The don't make the falafel until you order it so it is extremely fresh and very good! Save room for dessert because the baklava ice cream is to die for!!!
