Wanted a Halal certified meal catered in honor of Syrian guests. IDoF prepared, delivered and set up a very nice Middle Eastern buffet for our group of 50 and did it within our limited budget. We served their yummy Falafel with dipping sauces, stuffed grape leaves and Hummus/Baba ganoujeh with pita chips for appetizers. We had tomato/cucumber salad with lemon... More

This restaurants really tasty. I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. My friend and I both needed to charge our phones and there was a wall outlet near our table. That was super convenient. The baklava was really delicious and unique. Overall I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Mediterranean food.

Before moving to Chicago, I worked in Dearborn Michigan, where the middle eastern food is to die for. This has made me a falafel snob. I went here with a friend on his recommendation, and I have to say that I was not disappointed. If you are looking for good falafel, definitely check this place out.
