Chicken Gyro platter was overpriced for 16 bucks. Add on salad for 3 bucks is also way overpriced for what you get. Sauce is too thin almost like water. The food is average. We also got BBQ chicken kebab sandwich and Chicken Gyros sandwich. Mozzarella...More

Didn't dig this place much. The pita bread was very stale. The salad was heavy with what seemed like jarred vinaigrette- unripe tomatoes and iceberg lettuce- kind of like what you would get in a diner. The Shawarma and Hummus were both OK, but I'm...More

I enjoyed eating at this Lebanese restaurant. Great items to choose from. Good to eat vegetarian every once in awhile. Not too bad of prices...the owner was there which was nice and he even had a hand in taking care of our whole dinner

Authentic middle eastern food. Good prices. The ambiance was a bit better before they got a liquor license but the food hasn't changed. Now it's a bit more commercial. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood.

Visited this restaurant with two of my colleagues and I have to say it reminded me of being on vacation in Turkey. The restaurant is Libyan as it states but middle eastern cuisine is very similar. Real good restaurant to visit if you are away...More

My boyfriend and I went here for an early dinner, and sat outside in the backyard patio. It was sort of empty, and we found the service to be slow. First ogf, the food was pretty standard for a Lebanese restaurant, which isnt necessarily a...More
