The food, including flatbread pizzas, hummus, smoothies, and desserts, are all very good. We have been here many times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and each time the service is not good. The people who work here are gruff and rude.

I am a person well acquainted with Middle Eastern food, and I loved this place. It was odd to see curry chicken on the menu but I was more than excited to see falafel, grape leaf, shawarma and so many other favorites on the menu....More

I have been going to Manakeesh since it opened. The food is good, especially their date cookies. We ate the Sujuk which was very good. The atmposphere is also nice, and they have added seating. But, the service from the girls who take the orders...More

This food is EVERYTHING. Portions, prices, comfort, flavors! Just came from NYC and haven't had anything as good as this there. Za'gat (?) is a must try. Oh and you can have any custom made smoothie there! Please go!!
