Food was not of high quality and there were very limited options for vegans. Even the lentil soup is made with chicken broth. Staff was not aware that this did not make the soup appropriate for vegetarians or vegans.

We hadn't been here in a long time, and we decided to try it again and we had a fair experience. This is a arrant with no frills. The food is ok. Our favorite is manti; give it a try.

We went to this place on a kind of whim because we like middle eastern food. We were hoping to find a new treasure, but this is an odd little place that seems to be trying to figure out what it wants to be. Here, though, I will focus on the food. As a group of five diners, we ordered a large selection of hot and cold appetizers for the table - most of which were okay, but none of which were special. The falafel was burned. Many of them are variations of labne, a yogurt base. The spinach pie seemed microwaved. Desert was really a huge disappointment - the baklava was a pile of filo on top of a slurry of nuts and honey, no attempt at layering the dough, and the Turkish delight was the worst I have had with a weird texture. We sent the whole platter back and they kindly took it off the bill, offering us some free fruit instead, but by the time it came out of the kitchen, we were already on our way out the door. The waitress, who was friendly and apologetic, offered it to another pair of diners who had just ambled in who were delighted with the free appetizer.

Food was fantastic! We ordered a mixture of mezzes, kebabs and dessert and were very pleased with everything we ate.

We tried this on a Saturday night and it was not busy. Easy parking in the back. Appetizers were very nice and the kebabs delicious. Generous portions. Nice waiter. We will be back.

What more could ask for? The portions were generous and everything tasted very fresh. This cozy restaurant is just south of the Senator Theatre with parking around the back. The owners are Turkish and do a great job making you feel welcome.

If you go here you MUST have the lamb. It really is amazingly cooked and so very well seasoned. I really enjoyed that this is a small laid back spot so the wait staff was VERY attentive to my needs. This place will get carry out and dine in patronage from me on a regular basis. The lamb is THAT good!

The food was really great. My boyfriend and I went on a week night and it was really quiet. Only one other couple. We were concerned that it wasnt going to be good but once our food started to come out....yum! Their falafel was just OK but the hummus and our main courses were fantastic. Our server was nice and informative. I only wish they had more customers...we really hope itll be around as a delicious week night fun dinner.
