Based on the reviews, this place has a lot of fans but we we're disappointed with the food quality and taste. Ordered the chicken shawarma and chicken kabob platters. There was plenty of food and the service was friendly. The green salad was way past its prime with some slimey pieces. The entrees were very average-have had much better at... More

This is a small but very good Middle Eastern restaurant. I eaten in and ordered take away. In both cases the service was very good and the food was execellent.

Very nice Syrian family owns & operates this.. the Shawerma is to die for.. My favorite is the chicken Shawerma on rice.. omg, the hummus here is killer as well. The garlic dip.. *sigh* EVERYTHING is good! Service is not 100% the best, but I've had far far worse. Only downside I ever have is the parking. They're just a... More

Very good food -- not cheap but not too pricey Service is uneven and trends toward the bad -- they seem to always have another cousin waiting tables who knows nothing about the menu or anything else -- They also charge for extras -- a dollop of sauce costs a buck -- It also gets stuffy and whenever you're assured...

This is the best Syrian/Middle Eastern food in Colorado. Period. The gyro meat is delicious and the portion size is overly generous while the prices are extremely reasonable. Hummus is the best I've ever eaten. Creamy, flavorful, addictive. Pita is warm soft and tasty.

Was not very busy both times I dined in. seated quickly, offered a beverage, and food arrived very fast. Delicious, fresh, authentic food. ordered an appetizer and gyros as my entree both times; the portions are very generous. took home a baklava dessert. Reasonably priced, open late, located directly on Colfax, no dedicated parking lot.

This food is fantastic. Their hummus is to die for, the best I've ever had. The only bad thing about this restaurant is that they're not in my neighborhood so I settle for lunch here as its close to my office. For the outside it doesn't look like much. Well, maybe from the inside as well, but don't let that... More

Kabobs, which they claim to be their specialty, is like rubber. Very hard to chew... good for spitting out. Sauce was stale. Chicken tasted like it was precooked and warmed up (perhaps microwaved) and thrown on a plate. Service is horrible. The young man on the front counter is rude and dishonest about food freshness. Bad value for your money.... More

I thought the food was very good. Had to wait awhile for it, but wasn't in a rush. The difference between Syrian fare and Lebanese fare (what we get more of in Detroit) was interesting. Hummus was creamier than I'm used to with less garlic. There was a sauce with the falafel that was some kind of salted tahini mix.... More

We were not expecting fast food quality ..but that is exactly what we got.. If you are looking for authentic middle eastern meal- avoid this place at all costs... Even the wait staff admitted that they don't make the middle eastern beverages ( yogurt based and others ) from scratch and its poured off a bottle.. Apart from the falafels,... More
