When you sit they bring you a complimentary dish of hummus pita bread and I believe goat cheese! We got the caprese salad which was good as well. Both of us went with the lamb gyro which was amazing! If your looking for a great place for the first time then this is the one!

Eclectic fusion of delicious meals stemming from multiple counties in the Mediterranean and even Persia. I am not sure about the owner's heritage, but every bite was scrumptious. I made reservations through their comment site and the owner was promptly waiting on us upon out arrival. My wife and even my 18 month old son could not stop nibbling, even... More

This restaurant has a varied menu, but the Persian kabobs are absolutely delicious. They serve a sampler plate of Persian side dishes before the meal arrives.

Nice variety of good food and good service. I love their chicken or shrimp kabob but they have great Italian dishes, salads, Gyros, and other Mediterranean dishes. I didn't like hummus until I tasted their free appetizer of hummus, feta, tomatoes & onion. Yumm!

This is a small restaurant and is crowded on weekends, but the wait is worth it. Also, lunch is excellent.

My wife and I had lunch at this cafe based on locals recommendations. The service was great and the food even better. Loved my gyro and definitely will stop by next time I'm in Charles town.

The food and service are always very good. We recently had a surf and turf, Mediterranean style special they were serving. The beef medallions were very tender and the lobster and shrimp were delicious.
