The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the food was AMAZING! My husband got the pastrami sandwich and I ordered the eggplant special. The flavors on the eggplant sandwich were amazing. We shared a side is tzatziki and hummus plus a piece of baklava, all very good as well. We will definitely be back!!!

Their middle eastern prepared foods are varied , with many different types of feta, olives, specialties, and my favorite, marinated eggplant. The eggplant and hummus is worth the trip! Oh, and to...

While waiting we looked through the shop and found some preserves, spices and nuts. The lahmecun did not disappoint. There is clearly a warm relationship between the staff and the regular customers.It... More

I ordered and enjoyed the gyro plate. The salad was fresh and crisp. The rice pilaf was steamy hot and had a very nice balance of flavor. The gyro was everything it should have been.
