Due to kosher eating we didn't try the ribs our friend did. We had the lamb chops and the steak both were the best. Our friend said they never had ribs like those ever. Don't miss

One thing I miss when traveling overseas, especially to a fish and vegetable centric locale, is meat. This place cures that craving in spades. We ate here twice in just four days because my wife liked the smoked chicken so much (and we live in...More

They do pork ribs but they do lamb chops (and they do steaks too, beef). I don't know if they cook the lamb on the same grill they cook the pork on if that's an issue.
