Been coming here for years and it's always pretty darn good. The chicken is pretty good but the best thing here is probably the falafel. The hummus is always good and the pita is the best around, super soft!

I have been here twice now and was not disappointed either time. Excellent food full of flavor. The service was great. Indoor and outdoor seating. Not a "beautiful" restaurant but a very nice vibe.
