My daughter and I went in for a quick, late lunch. The menu is not extensive, but there's enough on it to have some variety. We both had, not surprisingly, shish kebab--she had the chicken, I ordered the lamb. They came with rice and a vegetable. We both had the spinach rice and mushrooms on the side. The rice was tender and flavorful, the mushrooms were cooked in tomatoes and spices and were excellent. The kebabs--four decent-sized pieces of meat on a bed of lettuce--were not overly generous, but all in all the meal was just right for a lunch. My lamb was tender and tasty and my daughter thought that the chicken was good as well. The meal was just spicy enough so that you could feel it for a while afterwards, but it was not at all overpowering. The prices are quite reasonable. They have a few tables outside for the nice weather. We sat at some tables next to the bar (the prices seemed very reasonable, although we didn't have drinks), and they have an upstairs dining room as well. Service was prompt and pleasant.

A group of 8 ladies had dinner. Our waiter suggested a buffet of appetizers and entrees. I ate dishes I did not think I would like and found myself taking notes so that if I went back I could order those items that interested me. A very lovel restaurant, staff and food.

This restaurant has delicious, fresh food. The portions are generous - I had to take some of mine home. Everything was cooked perfectly. The service was good and the atmosphere was very nice. I cannot believe how big this place is! I will go back.

Went twice in three weeks, once as a couple, and the other time with a group of 6. Terrific, attentive service both times. Not a place to go if you're in a hurry - the service is prompt, but everything is cooked to order and takes time. Everything comes out at just the right temperature - cold if appropriate and piping ho for heated foods. Appetizers are especially yummy - consider several appetizers for dinner. Lamb is terrific

It was jammed because their happy hour is excellent and goes until 7. So I sat outside on their patio on a glorious evening after a day of drizzle. Had my usual eggplant and Pino served by Jackie, one of their awesome bartenders. So great!
