For years I lived just three blocks from here and never made it in. My roommates raves about it so I’m glad I finally stopped by. The shawarma wrap was wonderful and the Turkish coffee a must!

We eat Middle Eastern food a lot and grew up with it. While their taboulleh isn't as good as homemade, everything else is always fine. Great location, wear whatever, very casual (and sometimes noisy). Great for a quick dinner but not for a special occassion.
