Food is always wonderful and the service is warm, friendly and prompt. It's BYOB so that keeps the price down but the food is excellent quality.

I had a 25$ voucher from restaurant.com for Cedars for 2 Mazas. The dishes kept on coming, small in size but tasteful and filling. I only would have preferred to include dessert in this lineup. You need to order something sweet after all the dishes....More

We were there for a light lunch, so we had tabbuleh (it was the best I ever had!) and each a pita sandwich: chicken shawarma and kefta. All was excellent!
