Most of the dining is outside. They have the best Chicken Greek Salad. They offer beer and wine. Really good hummus. I have been there many times over the years and have always been happy there.

Good food, reasonable price, friendly staff. You can call ahead to place order, to shorten your wait time. Outside seating as well as minimal indoor seating.

You can't get better in La Jolla! Their food is so fresh and if you want something light and healthy, I recommend the Tabouli and cucumber salad!

Mediterranean and yummy! This tiny place is a favorite when we are in La Jolla. Great to eat under an umbrella or take home. Lots of options, but favorite is a marinated chicken kabob plate with salad and delicious green rice.

This is my go-to restaurant for baba ghanoush. The food at this take out or sit down restaurant is very good.

This little shop is a small gem. Mediterranean-style cooking with several truly tasty vegan options. The tabbouleh is the best ever...also good hummus, falafels and tahini. They even serve Turkish coffee - excellent. There are a few cozy indoor tables or ample outdoor seating. Perfect...More

Five for dinner last week. You basically order at the counter and then either take out or find a place to sit outdoors. Two of our group enjoyed the Mediterranean flavors, the others did not...so it was a bit awkward. Nothing special. Food is decent...More

Once upon a time within the royal palaces of ancient Persia, chefs invented tantalizing dishes. These delightful recipes tickled the royal palates. We borrowed a little ancient wisdom and added our own unique southwestern mesquite to middle eastern invention. The result is mouth-watering. Imagine fresh and natural marinades designed to compliment our gourmet meats, seafood and vegetables, simmered over mesquite coals dripping with flavor. We think you'll agree this experience is best described as "The Thrill of the Grille!"
