We visited March 2018, we got there just as they were closing, which was actually 3pm (15:00). The server was still willing to seat us and bring us a hummus to share. This is definitely a large portion, we split it for lunch and were...More

Went there for lunch, is a busy place, but the staff is nice and the food is very good. If you are looking for something local and more as street food style, this is the place
