The food is delicious and the service is excellent. I arrived in a wheelchair and they instantly moved two chairs to make room for me @ the table. Lamb meals and baklava equals a great meal . Also Omar makes you feel welcomed.

Good middle-eastern. Skip the Italian menu. Don't go on weekends, it's overrun with teenagers there for the apple tobacco hookahs (unless that's what you're looking for). BEST TABOULEH in New Haven, possibly CT.
