Do not leave Kalamazoo with out eating in this restaurant. Chicken Kofta is the best. We loved it. Owner and servers are very nice.

Enjoyed a great tasting lunch with family while visiting WMU. Every bit as good, if not better, than downstate/Dearborn places for Middle East dishes. Service was also exceptionally splendid.

Do not judge this book by its cover! It looks like a dive joint, but it is authentic Mediterranean food and beverages. The server was extremely knowledgable about the cuisine and was able to make suggestions based upon our questions of flavor, spice, and protiens. We started our meal with freshly made humus and pita. The chicken and lamb kabobs... More

We spent a night in Kalamzoo, and were looking for a dinner spot. We saw the reviews this place gets, and decided to try it. It's very casual, no frills. Staff is friendly and will explain the menu items if you need help. We ordered one of their larger combos for 2. The grilled meats were flavorful and not dry... More

I recently had lunch here with a co-worker who raved about it. I have eaten at a far number of middle eastern restaurants, so knew about what to expect. We arrived and I was surprised at the atmosphere. It looked like a run down greasy spoon inside-- but my friend assured me the food would make up for the lack... More

Great spot to go for a date or meet up with friends. Generous portions. I ordered lamb with rice and amo mazo tea was perfect for a weekend lunch!
