Visited Stanford university and walked around Palo Alto town and attracted by the bread. We ordered Salad and Chicken with 2 side orders and it was simply blown me away. It was so delicious and yummy. I will come back again for sure.

The food was pretty good. The chicken was good. The hummus was nothing special honestly. It is not to pricey and is in a good location.

Fresh, authentic and exceptional. Well priced, always crowded. Definitely go here. We've been to both Oren's in mountain view and Palo Alto...both first rate. It gets very crowded, be prepared to wait!

This place is good for take out or Door Dash. You can't go wrong with any of their offerings. My granddaughter loves it, and so do the rest of us.
