Lamb tartar (kibeh) when it is available is mind boggling good. Wife and I love their filet kabobs. My best friend raves about the chicken shawarma. Regulars here.

I've visited here several times and the service and food are always amazing. The garlic to dip your fries in is excellent (as is everything else)!

I think you should call the owners of the restaurant, a friendly man and his wife. I know what halal meat is, and I respect the teachings of the Quoran.
