Food tastes good and fresh ingredients but it's not the cleanest. We got sick one hour after eating here. We both ordered different dishes and had the same symptoms.

Excellent food. Friendly wait staff. It's a mini trip to Egypt for an hour. Sit, relax, enjoy. Try the Koshari! Close your eyes and you are in Cairo.

This place was out of the way but worth it. Chicken sharma, beef and lamb gyro and beef and lamb burger were all fantastic. The hummus was some of the best we've ever had. Great service! The seasoned white lady was the only waitress but was able to wait on all the tables (about 6 or 7) perfectly. Please note... More

I've been here now three times, twice last year (one day after the other for the auto show) and again on August 13 for the new hope auto show. As always the food was spectacular. My hot date who has a little less experience in exotic foods than I really liked the vegetable kebabs and a good portion of my... More

I really love the food here and will keep coming back but it's just not a great ambiance type of restaurant. That is fine with me.....but I took off one star because it can be improved. There was a review in the New York Times that brought me in for the food and I have never been disappointed. I have... More

This restaurant is held together with spit and glue - but the lamb chops are delicious! The food is definitely peasant class, tasty and hearty. My fiancee and I have dined here a few times and would rather pay more to get more! On a budget? This is a great place to eat!

We had a group of 5 for early dinner on Halloween Saturday. We almost missed our show! At one point, I went back in the kitchen myself to get a birthday candle lit on the cake I brought myself. Food was mostly excellent, a few dishes were disappointing,
