I had the lamb gyro plate without the pita bread. The lamb was excellent! I raise grass fed lamb and know good lamb. This had good flavor, very tender and excellent spice combination. The onions were carmelized, yum, so nice and succulent. The cucumber yoghurt...More

I love Middle Eastern food. They should have been embarrassed to serve us the Vegetarian platter. The falafel was so overcooked, it was obvious and should never have been served. Completely impossible to eat. Perhaps useful for hammering nails or if you want to break...More

Excellent hummus and the falafel was delicious. Definitely stop here for a fast, healthy option. There is a nice patio area to dine at too!

I ordered the vegetarian platter with salad. It also comes with humus, baba ganoush, falafel and dolmas. The salad, humus and baba ganoush were excellent. The falafel and dolmas were terrible...I only took one bite of each.

Try the chicken burrito-- big enough for 2, which is why my girlfriend and I split it every time we come in. The best twist on Mexican food you'll ever find in a middle eastern spot.
