Excellent value for money with food made with very fresh ingredients. The humus was excellent. Extremely friendly host who we enjoyed talking to. He even gave us a complimentary piece of baklava which was also good.

Delicious Mediterranean cuisine from our family owned and operated business right in downtown Portland! Located conveniently near Portland State University. The atmosphere is intimate and cozy, with hand painted wall murals and decorations from our home of Alexandria Egypt. My brother and I take a great deal of pride in preparing healthy, fresh, vegetarian friendly meals at affordable costs. Straight from our family to yours our food is the next best thing to a home cooked meal! We also cater small events or parties so take a look at our catering section to schedule an appointment or inquire about pricing.
