Visited the restaurant with colleagues for a weekday lunch. It is located inside a jewelry store. They had good seating space for a sit-down lunch. I ordered chicken kabab with rice and hummus. The food was fresh and very tasty. Service was quick.

My friend found this place on "trip advisor" I think. It was in the back of a jewelry mart and you could hardly find a seat. We figured that was a good sign. We tried the falafel and the grape leaves and both were delicious....More

My husband and 2 kids and I freaked out about how great their food is. You will also not find such a unique atmosphere anywhere. It was an unexpected highlight of our trip!

Enter this cafe through a jewelry store! Not at all fancy but good, healthy food at a bargain price. I had the daily lunch special and there was so much cous cous and vegetables, I could not eat it all.

I love hidden places, and this one definitely qualifies! Seeking lunch after a fantastic trip to the Cultural Institute, we turned off a busy street into this quiet, laid back café (watch for the sign as it's easy to miss). Tasty falafels. Lots of vegetarian...More

Oasis Cafe is located in the middle of Chicago downtown. It's a hidden gem as it is located inside of the Jewellers mall on wabash street. Order shawarma sandwich or kabobs. All food is made fresh and served hot in a plate with humus, rice...More

Yes, from the outside, this place looks a bit like dive. Mainly for its odd location - it's in the back of a jewelry store on Jewelers Row in the Loop. So I took a long time to finally go here despite all of the...More
