We had different dishes all cooked with lamb and enjoyed them all. The falafel appetizer and honey cake dessert were good too. Prices were reasonable and service friendly. Planing to return often.

This is a true gem of a restaurant in Albany. The music is quite nice (Arabic music), tea is really good, and the food has always been fresh and full of flavor. Highly recommend visiting this restaurant.

All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our food. This was a great introduction for us to Lebanese/Syrian food. The lamb and zucchini dish was especially good, but the baklava was even better. Interesting artwork in the restaurant too.

Had the combination plate with lamb kebob - everything was both authentic and delicious! Husband had kebob platter and down to the rice (not just plain white rice, but wonderfully spiced) was excellent. Will definitely return and highly recommend.

The food is good and the owner is very nice. It's nice to experience Middle eastern cuisine with lots of flavor.
