Lovely place with great service, but the food stars: faoul madama (sp?) so tasty that I worried we wouldn't be as impressed with entrees, but the haddock with tahini sauce and Port Saied chicken were both bright with flavor, rich enough to make every bite...More

Wonderful tastes. Every dish that we had, fish with tahini, delucately flavored and moist, the vegetarian was really enjoyed by my husband and the port said chicken was exceptionally delicious. Unique tastes and flavors. we also recommend the foul mudamas

Foul Mudsmas hot appetizer delicious. Samke Harrah(fish dish) delicious. Port Said(chicken) and Mixed Vegetable Sauté have wonderful flavors. Baklava and coconut key lime pie scrumptious. Great meal.

We hadn't been there for a few year's and were wondering if it was still to our liking. It was, still the most authentic mid-eastern food! The shish kebabs were perfect, and so was the eggplant dish. We were so pleased, will soon go again.

I like going here for some of the bands they have. The food has gone downhill over the years and service is a total joke! Usually some college kids who apparently think they're doing a good job. Seating is nice, but some chairs falling apart.

good food, one of the fewer good options in Central Massachusetts. Worth a visit. Rated it good because I've had better food recently in a large metropolis. If you don't have that option you will love it. Courteous service.

We got here early one midweek evening when there were just a few patrons at the bar. My wife ordered the stuffed cabbage leaves appetizer which had a nice mint flavor and came with a really thick yogurt sauce you could pour on. I had...More

They make their own hummus - that's a reason to go right there. The food is great, the service is attentive without being intrusive. Worth the trip and best of all, they have their own parking lot which is a BIG help in this neighborhood.
