Starts out with steaming puffed bread, great with masa plate and hummus, smoky babaganoush, all had generous entrees (3 boxes to go), comped baklava for Waitress bill error, great place to catch up with friends, not rushed or crowded Friday afternoon.

Came here with family - including two young granddaughters. We started with an appetizer platter, mixed meat platters and finished with baklava. All was fresh and tasty. A place I have to return to next time I'm in town.
