Best Israeli & Mediterranean food in the area. I was most upset at myself for not knowing this place was here, having been in Denville for 2 years! So far we had a falafel sandwich, hummus, Shish Tawook platter and Baba Ghanouj. I love the extra pita that allows you to make little sandwiches along with the garlic mayo that... More

My husband and I were really enjoy Middle Eastern/Mediterranean cuisine. If it were closer to home we might eat there more frequently, but because it is about 20 minutes from Madison and they do not have much space for dining-in, we will probably only get take out if we are in the area and heading home. Food: We ordered the... More

What an excellent meal, better than anything we had in Istanbul or Cyprus. Not to mention the incredible value, the platters are worth every penny and then some. I had the chicken shawerma, wife had the falafel haifa sandwich, and we shared the baba and some grape leaves. The Marina Bread was new to me, and I haven't stopped thinking... More

First time we had when a friend carried out platers for dinner and next time my husband and I went there to try sandwiches for lunch. They cook when you order and... More

I eat here about twice a week. I love the food, very authentic in every regard. I usually order the Vegetarian platter, Falafel Sandwich, or Chicken Schwarma sandwich. All are great. Only things holding this place down are: -Disorganization: I don't think the orders are processed in the order they are received, things are pretty haphazard. -Nowhere to sit: the... More

Great food and nice staff. It's a hole in the wall place that focuses just on the product. I order takeout, but they have a single table you can eat at outside in the summertime.

Ordered a few things from the menu to get a variety of the different options, and was impressed overall. Really good food and I like that it's family operated. Easily can become a "go to" place. Great location by the train station too -

A little hole in the wall directly across from the train station, The kebab, shwarma, falafel delicious. Great lentil soup and the fattoush is great. Not much on ambience but the food makes up for it. Highly recommend.
