The variety of foods was amazing. It had everything my friends and I needed, plus so many other things that we never even knew we wanted. All of the staff was friendly and helpful, and a couple of them even treated us to samples.

You can travel the world--food-wise and never leave this downtown establishment. Extensive assortment of foods, fresh baked pita on the premises and a hot food line to buy lunch or dinner and a place to eat it. Attached is a bar with live entertainment.

Great place to eat casually. Many ethnic foods. It is also a mini market for many international foods. The only concern I have is that some of frozen foods are expired.

They have foods and favorites from all over the world. They have items you cannot get in regular chain grocery stores. I especially like the bakery. They make wonderful baklava.

The answer is yes. There are stairs but an elevator is available. Some of the rows are narrow but you should be able to get along fine. The employees are very helpful and will assist you with anything you may need.
