Have been here multiple times both for business lunches and dinners with friends. It's BYOB! Service can be a bit scattered at times but the food is excellent. They do have a small parking lot but otherwise parking is on the street.

Combination platter appetizer tasted good but was skimpy for $22. Pita bread made here was good, but the Lentil soup was way too watered down and tasteless. Shishkabob platter meat was overdone, tough & wrongly spiced (Uneatable). Vegetable Couscous was good.

Mediterranean cafe. We ordered mix veg platter, their veg salad and variety of sauces. The salad makes you feel cool. The pita is made fresh every day and it is delicious. Everything was delicious but the service could be a little faster.

Really one of the best Mediterranean or Turkish cuisines I have had. Everything was delicious - falafel, creamy smooth hummus, the pitas, and of course the grilled meat platter. Would love to go there when visiting NB next.

Well.... I was expecting better, but I guess there is a way to run a small party and there is a way to run a large party and those ways don't mix.... Went to the restaurant for a birthday party of a friend's child. The...More
