Great food, the people there are so very nice. The Lady at the front called at least 10+ people by name as they came in the door. She was so very nice. This place gets busy but worth it.

In an area full of pizza, BBQ, and fried chicken, i was thrilled to find a restaurant promising authentic mediterranean food. It certainly did not disappoint. My host Michel was a genuine and cultured as the food and made me feel welcomed and free to create a meal just for me. I had the vegetarian plate with a side of... More

Wow....great Lebanese place with lots of other menu options. We loved their Dolmas. This place is very clean and the food is really spectacular. It's a family run place and it really shows in all the best ways.
