Lamb tartar (kibeh) when it is available is mind boggling good. Wife and I love their filet kabobs. My best friend raves about the chicken shawarma. Regulars here.

I've been living in the area for four years and this is one of my if not my very favorite restaurant. It is somewhat unique from other mid eastern restaurants, offering unusual entrees and a good wine selection.

I think you should call the owners of the restaurant, a friendly man and his wife. I know what halal meat is, and I respect the teachings of the Quoran.
