Thee are not many nice restaurants in Berkeley. This one is full of atmosphere, and their platters offer a nice variety of small portions of fresh and tasty food. We liked it enough to go back three times in one week.

Beirut by way of California. We ate here with my daughter who has been to Beirut and loves the food. This is very authentic and delicious food. The waitpersons are mostly family and our waitress should look to another career before it is too late.

Menu and quality has not changed over the years. Very reliable and tasty Middle Eastern cuisine, a place we go to for take-out. Prices are a bit high for what you get, but always good.

Had lunch for 4 here this weekend and we had a pleasant time. Very roomy restaurant with tables available for inside and outside. The decor was interesting that added greatly to the dishes on the menu and the service was perfect. For starters we ordered a combination plate of Hummos, Baba Ghanoush, Tabuleh, Dolmas, Feta Cheese and Olives served with... More

We visit here at least once every visit to Berkeley. It is fun, on a warm night to sit outside and people watch. The food and service are great. The platters are enormous and feed a group.

The food is Lebanese inspired. Great place if you are looking for any vegetarian alternatives! Excellent cucumber and yogurt soup and also the greek style chicken soup was yummy! Large plates and fast service! Get an outdoor table if weather is good! Easy to park right on college ave. Might need reservation on weekend nights!

We went for lunch. Lamb Lule, Chicken Kebab, and Small Mediterranean plate. Each plate came with a couple of small pieces of fruit, Hummus, and a shared plate of Pita. Options are 3 types of salad or soup. The flavors did not stand out....kinda boring for mediterranean fare. I would have preferred a cucumber salad portion vs the pineapple/banana/orange pieces.

Have eaten here many times over the course of 30 years and it remains a dependable choice for lunch if you're in the neighborhood. We always get the small vegetarian middle east plate, with hummus, levant sandwich, spinach and feta fillo, cheese karni fillo and soup (lentil today) or green salad. The food is consistently good - not worth a... More
