This place is busy, especially at lunch time. It is not a huge restaurant so there's a lot of energy, but the food is fast and AMAZING. There is so much to choose from with their dishes, sides and sauces. Their chicken kabab is so...More

Eating at this place is like being transported to Tel Aviv. Everything about this place is authentic. Would highly recommend the hummus lamb bowl AND the green Shakshuka! Totally worth making a trip here.

This is not for the meat and potato lover but a little meat and garbanzo you are in the right place. Personally I like lamb and eggplant so my choices were easy. Small and large portions were options. More options for vegetarians or dietary concerned...More

Great food and service plus very reasonable prices. Hummus, baba ganoush, tabouleh, and the grilled chicken are my favorite, small restaurant so if you go there at popular times expect to wait in line.

I eat and cook a lot of Mediterranean food. I've said that I've had the best Mediterranean food before. The best I had before I would rate a 6 and Oren Hummus a 10. We had the Hummus Sabich bowl, sampler dish, a la carte...More
