A tiny place, with a couple of tables, right in downtown. Veggie girl had the falafel sandwhich (actually a pita wrap) and I had the Kibbeh (beef/lamb sausage) sandwich. Both of them were bursting with flavor and freshness! Almost too much for the delicate New...More

Found the restaurant on Yelp, and were glad we did. Right from the entrance, the owner greeted us, took our ordered, offered recommendations and tastes. The vegetarian plate was awesome, with a garlic paste that I have not had at other places. He entertained us...More

Food was delicious and so flavorful! The owner was super nice and brought us a lot of free things to try out. Chicken and beef shawarma as well as grape leaves and all the dips were absolutely fantastic!

This "palace" has about 5 tables, so they must do a lot of takeout. We both had the chicken shawarma sandwich, a nice size warmed wrap with lots of flavor. Also tried their baklava, which was also very good, on the nutty side, rather than...More

What a treat and surprise (Mediterranean food). 5 stars does not do it justice…worth 6 for sure. Excellent food, excellent choices at reasonable prices! Yes, it is compact, but they move things around to accommodate and they will help you with your choices and modify...More
