After a few days on Campus I wanted a change and found this great neighborhood restaurant with all types of middle eastern food. You can not go wrong with the freshly made hummus. All the grilled stuff and kebabs where also out standing.

We were delighted to find this gem while visiting Stanford University. We had both the falafel and the chicken schnitzel in pita bread and found them to be excellent. The hummus sampler was delicious as well. If you enjoy Israeli food, this is your place.
