This is a pleasant place with great food. It serves a great variety of Mediterranean food. It also serves as a takeaway. The cocktail samosas is an absolute must.

Have you ever dined in a restaurant where you felt like you were a guest in someone’s home? It’s about the food. It’s about freshness, spices and a welcome hospitality rarely found in the world of restaurants today. The hummus is incredible. The lamb and...More

As others have noted, there's not much in the way of ambiance, but the food is very tasty! I love the "side dishes" on the back of the menu-- a couple of them make a nice lunch, or order 4 (at a discount) if you're...More

Four of us found this nice little place while in the Swarthmore area. It was a Monday evening and not very crowded. We would highly recommend it for fresh, delicious Mediterranean dishes. Modestly priced adds to its desirability.

Fabulous food in the sit-down dining room or at the take-out case. Azim (the owner) is friendly, gives samples, is very enthusiastic about the food. Try the roasted corn salad, minty cucumber salad, the rice pudding and the fabulous gyros and souvlaki.

A friend and I ate at this restaurant for the first time last week before going to the Spotlight Theater down the street. We both got the Koubideh- and it was really delicious. And the corn salad was fabulous. It's more like a luncheonette type...More
