My family and I eat here multiple times a year. Normally that sounds like nothing special, but I have to travel over 45 minutes to this small restaurant. I highly recommend any of the meats, but the chick peas are a must!

Helpings were plentiful but good was bland. The lamb kabab was ok, but the chicken kabab was cold and a bit undercooked. The rice too was not anything much to speak of. Decided against trying anything else. Cleanliness was average. They accept only cash. Surprising...More
