This out-of-the way place deserves a lot more attention than it gets, mainly for its levant-influenced Mediterranean food, although the pizza is pretty good. Have eaten there many times, and everything I've had is good, solid stuff, although the oven-roasted eggplant babaganoush is to die for. Fair value for the money and friendly owner-operators. Give them a try.

Great little bistro tucked away in a strip close to Wally World. Nothing fancy, but what delicious, fresh food!! The hummus, tabbouleh, and falafel were all home made and scrumptious! Did the combo for 2 shish ka bob plate for under $20, with juicy Greek chicken and Kafta.....can you say YUM!! Oh, and the best part, the bread! Warm and toasty with a soft, sweet middle!!! Perfection with the hummus!! Super friendly and accommodating, our host appeared to be the owner as well. He couldn't have been more generous and warm. If you are hanging out in Richmond, check it out, you won't leave hungry! Oh, and very reasonably priced!

The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is pretty good. The owner is a really nice guy as well. Hopefully they have hired more help to keep up with the demand.

I will be sure to tell my friends about the excellent food here and the helpful owner and his family. The Greek-Style Chicken the Fatoosh, the Kibbeh would be worthy of my grandmother's kitchen, and the Fatoosh is better than what I make at home. The hummus was a delight too, not as full of garlic as I make but the perfect compliment to the other dishes. The prices are great...I wish they had a basic wine list, but perhaps they have not applied for an ABC license yet. The grocery next to the dining room provides much that I use in my own kitchen. I'll be certain to return to this restaurant!

This is a Mediterranean restaurant featuring Middle Eastern, Greek and Italian food but is best known for its Middle Eastern dishes. It’s tucked back to the side of a shopping area that includes a Lowes and a WalMart, and is a little difficult to locate unless you know where it is. Once there, the ambiance is very nice --- clean and open. The food is excellent -- the lamb schwarma and the lamb ka-bob, and especially the baklava. This is family-owned and -operated. The service was fine but a little slow because --- believe it or not --- the dishes are actually prepared and cooked as they are ordered. This is not fast food; it’s real food. Value was very good. This is definitely a great find and well-worth return visits.
