The cafe is just north of OSU and only 10 min away from the Crew stadium. We ate there before our game. The food was ready in just a few minutes and was tasty. Not the best, but for the price and location it was...More

The food is great. The prices are good. The service is good. I've been eating lunch here once a week for the last few years. Always good. The chicken breast kabob is my favorite.

Menu is limited but food quality is good, so are the portions. We ordered a variety (beef plate, chicken plate, lamb plate, gyro) and the chicken kabob I thought was the best. Reasonably priced mom & pop casual restaurant at the end of a strip...More

I stumbled across this little restaurant because of a dining certificate, and I'm really glad I did. The food is excellent, and the prices are reasonable. I recommend the Chicken Tandoori, even though it is more Indian than Afghan. The hummus was fantastic, and the...More
