Great grape leaves! I've eaten the leftovers for breakfast. I've tried several items and everything has been wonderful. Make reservations if you're going during peak hours.

Restaurant/bar is small and decor is dated but had a fabulous meal with friends. Mediterranean-centric menu with other offerings to appease other tastes. If you're going to a Mediterranean restaurant that is family owned and operated for decades you really should try their specialties. Good...More

In the day of the chains this family owned restaurant has passed the test of time. Great Middle East and overall menu served in an appropriate setting. Reminiscent of Omar Khayyam's or Samreny's for atmosphere and quality. Service was exceptional.
