Actually chose this restaurant because we had a coupon for it. Located in a bit of a strip mall, it is a relatively small restaurant, but excellent food. Atmosphere is "so-so" as far as decor and romantics. There on a Friday night they had entertainment - a singer with a guitar. He was a welcome addition because he did not play too loudly - we could actually have conversation while sitting right near him. The food was delicious - Mediterranean fare. I chose vegetarian options - falafel, stuffed grape leaves, hummus, tabouli, while my husband had lamb. We both enjoyed the homemade guacamole appetizer!! And took home baklava for later - which as also delicious! Overall, a great meal, and we will return for more!

Stopped in last minute to take home dinner. Mealswere prepared within 20 minutes.
Spicing and taste of the mixed grill was very good, but they have to work on their take-out packaging. They put he salad with dressing, rice, grilled vegetables, and meat all he the same foil container. The rice (which wa a wonderful texture) was covered in the salad dressing. Maybe splurge for separate containers? Similar problem with the felafel appetizer. The felalfel was wonderul, but the humus container opened in the package, soaking all of the felafel. Also sered in without any pita or bread of any kind.
I had been to this restaurant a few years ago, right afte they opened; was not impressed. The food is now excellent, the sit-down meal is probably great, but the take out till needs work.

We are especially fond of any food that is MiddleEastern and this place is wonderful! We have ordered a catered dinner for 17 and each dish was perfectly prepared and beautifully served. I love the BYOB aspect too! Really keeps the cost of a dinner out to a more reasonable level and this way we can order more! On this visit, we ordered the dinner for 4 that included lamb chops, Kofta and chicken kebobs. The presentation was beautiful. WHILE WE DIDN'T CARE FOR THE PRESERVED LEMONS OR THE PICKLES ON THE PLATTER, THE REMAINDER WAS DELICIOUS AND ENJOYED BY ALL. THE MENU SAID IT SERVED 4-6 people; we were just 4. The leftovers were enjoyed the following night and easily fed the 2 of us. Will definitely come again!
