Great for families
We took our whole family there. Our server was excellent. She paid attention to all of us even our 3 year old grandson. It was lots of fun.

Successful Anniversary Dinner
Ansari's has become a favorite of the wife and I and we couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate. The service has always been very friendly and accommodating. The main reason Ansari's is our favorite is for the consistent quality of the food. The Mediterranean Sampler Appetizer is highly recommended for a taste of several offerings the restaurant offers. I had the flaming ribeye as an entree. Prepared perfectly, but I would have preferred a bit more seasoning. My wife had the shish tawook and we wouldn't have changed a thing. If you go, you must try a sample of the hummus (which a generous portion is included on the aforementioned sampler platter. We're from out of state and this place is always an option for dining.

I had the Lamb feat, it was delicious. My companion had the tour of Greece which she liked very much. Would definitely go back again. The only negative was that my companion was out of her iced tea for along time with no offer of a refill.

Noisy - hard to talk in a group
The food was good but not as good as at the old place. We wanted to try some items we hadn't had a chance to before but for the most part we would go back to the old standards that they do so well. We will order out the next time as the atmosphere was too chaotic. The Taboulia (spell??) salad was the best ever. The pitas great, the gyros is always a stand-out. However we like places that we can have a conversation so maybe that means we should eat the great food in a great place ie: at home.

Happy to share this gem with friend
I brought two friends to this hidden gem after having a five star meal there last year with my husband. Both friends are well traveled and one has an Egyptian father. They were delighted with the abundance, taste, presentation, and variety of food at Ansari's. The belly dancer was entertaining and classy. Looking forward to sharing with others.

Very Mediterranean Atmosphere...
So I hadn't had Greek food in a long time and was somewhat nervous that it was in a suburb. However, my spouse and I both had fish (which was very good). I was somewhat disappointed that their menu was not up to date (I order the Mahi kabobs which they no longer had). We have the seafood stuffed portabella's and they were pretty tasty. The most impressive part was the belly dancer! I don't know from "bellydance" but as an appreciating artist, this dancer was AMAZING! Seemed like the real deal. It was a little different at first, but if you're not impressed after 5 minutes, then you're not paying attention. Totally worth a kind of "get-away-try-something-different" kind of date place. I would recommend: "good food, new experience".

Food is good, the flaming cheese is really special. The price is reasonable for the amount of food you are getting. Belly dance shows are fun to see as well.

Dinner with friends
The restaurant was pretty quiet for a Saturday night and we had a lovely unhurried dinner with friends. Service was good. Three of the four dinners were very good. We got a special treat since it was our anniversary.

Great food but small establishment
The sampler platter is outstanding - particularly the hummus. The crab soup of the day was a little blah, but the Casablanca is amazing and the salads were great too. The belly dancing was fun, but a bit awkward - especially when the dancer comes around to the tables for tips while you are eating and conversing. The space is small and cramped. I've heard that Mediterranean in Burnsville is a little nicer for space.

Staying at the hotel next door for business and stopped in for dinner, I was recommended the Mediterranean Sampler platter and WoW! The Hummus was the best I've ever tried, really fresh and tasty Greek Salad with the Lamb Gyro, falafels and spinach pies! I tried a Greek beer called Mythos and that was great too. Service was top notch and I will definitely be back soon to bring the family.

Great food, great service. Everything was fabulous and the portions are big. Highly recommend the flaming cheese for an appetizer!

Our party of four each had a different menu item. We were all very satisfied with the presentation and the taste of our meals. The prices were reasonable too.
