We love this restaraunt. The food is always of excellent quality, and the ambiance is also excellent. Could wish for more wine options, but otherwise we've never had a complaint of any kind. Highest recommendation.

My boyfriend and I were tired and hungry. We grabbed food to go. The server was really nice and helpful. The food was delicious and true to Mediterranean cuisine. The atmosphere was simple and relaxing. Next time we're eating in!

In the several times we've dined here since our first visit, we have had at least one of their daily specials. Be sure to ask as you may not notice the sign as you walk in. Each time they were excellent, whether vegetarian or a meat dish. On our last visit, it was lamb shank with vegetables which was pronounced... More

The wait staff are helpful and attentive. The food always is delivered quickly and right out of the oven. Would highly recommend.

I went there for dinner and I liked the place. Albeit, my food had a tad extra lime in it but it was good. The ambience is good and it does give you a middle eastern feel.

I visited with a co worker and ordered the beef shawarma and she ordered the coco wawa. We also ordered the mezza for 2. The dolma (stuffed grape leaves) were terrible, all other items on the mezza were good. The beef shawarma was good although I had to ask for bread to go with it, quantity was ok. The coco... More

Comfortable, clean and cute with colorful hand embroidered table covers made by Syrians. Our waiter was proud of this fact and was an excellent server. The perfectly seasoned food was outstanding! It was actually hot when delivered and clearly went from pan to plate to diner without waiting and cooling. It's my new favorite place for Mediterranean food.

Really missing the food at Lulu's... glad to see this restaurant is keeping up the memory. The hummus is even better and the baba ganoush is equally as good as I remember. Plus the grape leaves are fantastic. Had some lamb kabobs and they were great too. Don't miss out, go have some fantastic Mediterranean food at this place. So... More
