Bunch of us from the office ate here after work on a Friday. The place is not big but good thing we had reservation, it was packed wall-to-wall. I noticed there were many take out order pickup, the locals must know it would be busy. The food selection is pretty good and the comments were good on taste from everyone... More

We were ordering to go, which was fortunate since the place was packed. It's not a large place. The wait was close to an hour, so we walked around the area and then waited a few final minutes before the food was ready. All of it was good, and there was some left for breakfast.

I got the pick 3 plate and wow it was good. Best fava bean dish in the area. Place is more of a quick stop place with mostly clean tables. No servers or busboys so you need to order from the counter. Very friendly group but could do more to brighten and clean the place up a bit. Otherwise totally... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant when looking for something unique in Burlingame. It has no curb appeal, but when we looked at the pictures of entrees on a clapboard in front of the restaurant we liked what we saw. We were the only ones there when we walked inside to order at the counter, however, as we ate our dinners,... More

Traveling throughout the US, I have my favorite destinations. When afforded the opportunity to visit the Bay Area, I also visit Taste In. Every time I visit I am reminded why I enjoy this wonderful restaurant. First, the FOOD; fresh & flavorful, I feel like I am doing something healthy. Second, the casual atmosphere, for me, is relaxing. Nidal, and... More

Stopped in for an earlyish dinner. Tight seating and order at the counter. Great freshly made mango lasse and more than superb mint lemonade. Had dolmas and eggplant stew/cucumber yogurt dip, and lentil rice stew/tabouli. Both two item plates that you can create from menu items. Very reasonably priced and really tasty. Nice folks who own and run restaurant. Seating... More

We were staying at the nearby Hyatt regency and had to catch an early morning flight .We enjoyed the food . The shawarma was good , the yogurt drink with mint was tasty .The gyro was also something we ordered which was equally good .One person in our party ordered falafel platter .

I'm very well traveled and this place is way less then average. The staff were nice but the food was terrible. Not fresh or clean. I had to throw out most of my food as it was old and just really bad. Even desert was terrible. This is the worst middleeastern restaurant I have ever been to. And I have... More

We went there because of lots of Yelp and Tripadvisor reviews. We've had Mediterranean food in Turkey, Greece, other places in Europe and even in Canada. We didn't notice anything that special about our meals.

Was in the area on business and like Mediterranean dishes. Tried the Lamb Kabob platter, Boneless Lamb shank and Moroccan chicken and all were very good
