We've been to Marina's many times, so for Mother's Day we decided to get the family platter for 6. We were not disappointed. They prepared a huge amount of food with just about everything on their extensive menu, all artfully displayed. The tabouli is second only to Emily's, also in Northeast Minneapolis.

Great greek and middle eastern fare with the wallet impact of a cafeteria. El Lobo tip: Come after sunset during Ramadan for a culinary feast under the big tent in the parking lot!

When in ne, go here when you need your lamb meat dreams fulfilled. Great service and a staple of the community. Hard to get in and out of parking lot- busy intersection

In the very first week I came here, I was recommended to visit some famous places. One of the top places I was highly recommended to visit was an Egyptian restaurant. The person who told me said “Eating there is like dream comes true”, so I wanted so bad to eat from there and no one could made me change... More

We came for dinner. It was fast and nicely done. Upton is a little shy on inexpensive places to eat and this is a good one. The food is good, the service is friendly and it is very good value indeed.

Lunch here is some of the best food in uptown. Had the falafel sandwich (with hummus instead of cuke sauce) and tabouli salad. Fresh, tasty, cooked in front of me, and I would expect this place to be more crowed each time I go back, because it's that good. fast and freindly service and if you don't love middle eastern...

First time we had gyros which were the best we've had. Second time I tried the buffet and tried all sorts of interesting foods.

My family and I went there on July 28th, 2014 to celebrate Eid day at this restaurant. I will never understand as a fellow Muslim why the prices were increased to $17 for that day. First and foremost, I have only seen it with ethnic communities to increase pricing on a day of joy and happiness. Whereas on Christmas eve... More
