Best Mediterranean eatery in Lexington! Food is always fresh and full of flavor, with large portions. The only item they could improve on is the pita bread.

One of my favorite spots in Lexington. Great menu and amazing Mediterranean food. Love the garlic sauce. You really can't go wrong with anything. Falafel, beef, chicken, lamb, hummus, salads. Don't be surprised to wait in line, and it's totally worth it.
