They are famous for their Hommous and king tea (chai tea-ish). However my favorite of all time is the shish tawook (grilled chicken skewer) and the lentil soup (the soup is not vegetarian though).

It is the best restaurant for Mediterranean food in Kalamazoo. Of course it is not the perfect but when you miss this taste can be preferable.

As far as I know, the Drake location does not have a buffet. The one at the corner of Westnedge/White does though, lunch and dinner buffet both. It's a bit pricey, but still good food.
