Food is very good and prices are great. You get a lot of food for your money and everything tasted great. It definitely is a big hit for dine in and carryout since it was busy. Service was really good.

welcoming staff. At times you may have to wait. Very friendly staff. All grilled items are good. You get great food at a very reasonable price. The owner will come and ask you about the food. Fresh juice and Abu Mayen tea will be icing on the cake. Highly recommend

Exceptionally kind and attentive owner, delicious Lebanese food, consistently. The shawarma beef wrap and shawarma chicken wrap are great to-go "sandwiches", and Amu Mosen Chai tea is delicious. We are always proud to bring friends and family to eat here.

This place is only good if you have never been to an Arab restaurant. It fails in taste and price. The owners need to do a better job.

Have been going there for multiple years, it's always really good, for there is a great menu with a big variety of options. Great quality food for a low price. The salad is always fresh and the lentil soup is always hot and succulent. Would recommend to everyone

It's not the fanciest place in the world, but boy you can fill up some good food without breaking the bank. Your regular Middle Eastern fare, but always fresh and tasty. Favorites include Nidal's Salad (greens, with tomatoes, feta, toasted almonds, grilled chicken and served with ranch), the cauliflower and potato sandwich (cauliflower and french fries - stay with me...

I had the lunch special for $10 - Chicken Shawarma Sandwich, a Salad, Pop, and Fries. It could have easily fed two people, but the shawarma is so delightful, that... More
