- options are limited in the areaOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 7/22/2014Options are limited in this part of SSF. The food is very good. I'm not a big fan of the iPad replacing the server. Fast, good food for lunch, though. And good for groups.Special Features:
- Fun and delicious near SFOCarovinoVIPDined on 3/7/2014My husband and I were looking for somewhere to eat on the way to the airport. We stopped here but didn't expect to have such a nice meal. The food was delicious, the environment was comfortable and easy and the table tablets for ordering and games/trivia made it extra fun. Great, fresh falafel too. We would certainly go back again. I wish we could find a low-key and tasty spot like that near where we live!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- poor service food very blandaaaaDined on 2/15/2014poor service food very bland -something was definitely missing - all six of us agreed on this fact chicken very dry - maybe day old due to the fact that we were the first ones there and arrived at 11:30am.
- Great find!LPTeamDined on 12/13/2013Excellent food and service in a nice, new setting. Parking available. Easy access to freeway. Great variety of Mediterranean food. Love the kebob plates. Lentil rice was delicious. Favorite lunch place.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good and reasonably-pricedliv4foodDined on 9/16/2013Good food. Nothing special, but quite tasty. Very reasonably priced. I took my mother there and we were able to have a quick dinner and it was less than $25. Would go back again if I wanted kebabes/hummus and was in the area.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good Food but service confusingnchedo11Dined on 9/13/2013Group of friends ordered the falafel wrap, garlic potatoes, hummus, and pita chips, and the cheese sticks. The food was good and flavorful and definitely filling. The service could be better though. We had a reservation but were told to order at the counter. The ordering process should of been explained better before we sat down because some of us ordered at the table and that apparently wasn't the "right" thing to do despite the reservation. Otherwise good food, nice place kind of the middle of nowhere but good nevertheless!Special Features:
