I’m feeling bad as I realize I have made tons of reviews but I seem to neglect the places we visit very frequently! We spread our Arabic dining experiences (1/week about) across a few places. Each place offers a unique experience and most have some...More

Been there twice. On every level it’s a wonderful restaurant! We are looking into planning a larger family gathering soon. Something for everyone on the menu. Both times service was great. Food and drinks are fresh and fabulous!! Our favorite new place!

We went to this restaurant to eat kibe but there was no "raw kibe". We then tried the deluxe banquet for 4 - what a good surprise. Good food and good portions.

Not overly decorated but who cares when the food is so good! We had Lamb shank and game hen, hummus and some of the grill bread, dessert of rice pudding and baklava. Everything was prepared well and so very tasty! Waitstaff was patient and attentive.

The family of my granddaughter's best friend hosted a delicious college graduation dinner party here, and all of us loved the dinner. The restaurant is housed in an old Victorian home that reminds one of San Francisco's painted ladies. Our party included young adults, middle...More
