Pretty good Mediterranean food, but not as good as what we have in Dallas. I had the Chicken Dijaja Salad and it was very healthy. Staff was nice and accommodating to our large group. Definitely save room for the ice cream - that was the best part!!

I'd go 10 stars if I could! We noticed this place while walking around the cute town of Manitou Springs and decided to get take out that evening - it was fabulous. 3 of us had the kebab plates that came with hummus and warm fresh pita - best hummus we've ever had. One of us got the Sahara Gyro... More

Saw this had good reviews on Trip Advisor so we tried it. It is Turkish food I believe. Very different than anything I usually eat. I think I had the chicken platter and my wife had the meat platter. The wait was very short to get our food and there was a lot of it. Tasted great and the service... More

My husband and myself decided to skip the hike and get some food today due to the weather constantly changing. With that being said, we stop at this cute little gem just off the main drag. I wish I had taken a photo of our plates but they were amazing. The service was great, very friendly. You can tell there... More

The place is not much to look at but the food and service was 5 star! Talked to one of the chefs and he explained that all of the food is VERY fresh! If something sits for more than 10 minutes - he remakes it. The server Max was very pleasant and answered lots of questions for us. I would... More

Our family randomly stopped through Manitou Springs, and this was such a delight! Our server was incredible! We had lots of questions about the menu, and he was so patient with us. We have a vegan in our group and he was so conscientious of making sure that she had food that met her needs, and was delicious! We tried... More

This was recommended to us from a local merchant. Good food, resonably priced, and very nice staff, unless you told them there was something wrong with the food. I had ordered the lamb gyro, and two pieces of lamb were all grissle. When I said somthing, the waiter that recommended the dish, replied.. Well I have never had that happen... More
