We were hungry, driving from home to IKEA, and didn't want IKEA food. I checked the app as we drove and found this place......and we were delighted!!!! They have regular Greek food, plus all sorts of other Mediterranean food....not sure from where, but it was good! My husband had the beef/lamb gyro ($4.99).....I tried a bite and both of us... More

Good food, good price. Staff is efficient but not particularly friendly. Could be a cultural thing? Or maybe just a fluke. It won't prevent us from returning. I really enjoyed the music they played, it added to the experience.

My husband and I come here weekly. The hummus is so smooth! Their menu has pictures which is nice and it is very reasonably priced. Delicious gyros

I have eaten at Ishtar a few times and have liked everything I have eaten (except the side salad - carrots tasted preshredded and like preservatives). Hummus - excellent. Baba Ganoush - a little smoky for my taste but very good. Dolmas - excellent. Falafel - crunchy yumminess. Chicken tikka - amazing. Beef and lamb skewers - I thought they... More

Excellent, large, meaty, fall off the bone tender, we'll browned and served with excellent tender basmatic rice, smokey babganoush (or humus) and a small salad. We also shared the mixed vegetarian plate with tangy fresh dolmas, crispy brown falafel (adore those) and humus. Needless to say we have lunch tomorrow! My husband, who doesn't like to eat out, raved about... More

This used to be an A&W and didn't realize it had changed hands to a Greek restaurant. They have a decent variety of food available. And everything we had was very good. Service was fast and people very friendly. We will return again.

Good food, good prices. My salad was amazing! Place is an old A&W so small in size but food was fresh and good.

Most flavorful middle eastern food we have had in a long time. Tried it on a Groupon. Though we live 45 minutes away, we would make the trip just to eat there again. Shawarma, kabobs, hummus, the greek salad, you will be glad you checked them out!

Stopped here on a whim and found I hit the jackpot. Been back several times as a result. Great freshly made food at great prices. Who'd have thought/believe that their French fries would be so good in a Med restaurant.

in the food business, you live or die by whether your quality warrants repeat or even referral business. We will return to Ishtar and we will tell our foodie friends about this jewel which has the best dolmas that we have ever eaten. For those of you who choose your restaurants by whether they are Architectural Digest candidates, you are... More
