We took our daughter, a Rutgers student, here for lunch to celebrate her birthday. We shared 2 salads, 2 appetizers (hummus and baba ganoush) and chicken kebab. Lots of food. Pita bread was warm and so good Salads were all fresh. Friendly. Helpful waitress. Nice...More

Having dined at this restaurant a few years back we were close by and decided to try it again. The Baba Ghanoush salad appetizer was ok. The Falafel was dry poorly seasoned and didn't even have salt and pepper. The Adana Kebab was dry overcooked...More

After driving 3 hours in the mood for a nice meal. Did not have preconceived notions going in; a blank slate. Shared Chipotle Hummus which I highly recommend. The Calamari was okay. The two entrees ate another story. Both Black Sea Bass and Beef Short...More

Have been here multiple times both for business lunches and dinners with friends. It's BYOB! Service can be a bit scattered at times but the food is excellent. They do have a small parking lot but otherwise parking is on the street.

Went with my wife, her brother and his wife, to take my mother-in-law out for 86th birthday lunch. Great food. Mediterranean/Greek. We started out with a plate of different spreads to dunk delicious, puffy pita bread into. All the dishes were excellent and large portions....More

Combination platter appetizer tasted good but was skimpy for $22. Pita bread made here was good, but the Lentil soup was way too watered down and tasteless. Shishkabob platter meat was overdone, tough & wrongly spiced (Uneatable). Vegetable Couscous was good.

Mediterranean cafe. We ordered mix veg platter, their veg salad and variety of sauces. The salad makes you feel cool. The pita is made fresh every day and it is delicious. Everything was delicious but the service could be a little faster.
