    We were two couples. Split two appetizers. A perfect start. Then had kabobs, branzino, and a side saladndivided among the 4 of us. Everything was perfectly prepared. The Lebanese wine was a minor disappointment.

    First time - everything was great! I sought out middle eastern cuisine because I have a favorite restaurant in Philly that serves the same, and this is what I found! Easy to find online, easy to drive to, fantastic food and service, easy parking. I'm excited to come back and try other menu items. Their instagram steered me to the Chef's Platter appetizer which was a perfect way to sample many things, then the server suggested two others dishes which were both great. I highly recommend this restaurant. Thank you.

    A family favorite. We took our kids and their partners to celebrate son’s b-day. Everyone loved the food. Waitress carried out my request to bring out desserts with a birthday candle, a request I made before we ordered and before my son arrived. She got it all right.

    Great restaurant! Delicious food! Friendly staff! Only downside was that it was too bright. Some of the overhead lighting could be dimmed for the perfect ambience. The beautiful lamps throughout would probably provide enough lighting. Highly recommend.

    Very nice ambiance, not crowded, very good service. The food was outstanding. I asked for something not on the menu. The appetizer called samosa was meat filled, but I wanted something lighter. My server said he could get me a spinach samosa. He brought three of them with spinach and caramelized onions. They were marvelous. My shwarma sandwich was also delightful and filling. The black tea with mint was also excellent. I'll be back!

    Mediocre at best. I wanted this to be wonderful….it was not. Server was so slow we actually thought she was mad at us. Food was just okay and not hot. It was so bad the ambiance seemed weird. Water was $7.50

    I sat from 7:15 till 7:50 without anyone even taking my drink order. Mezza fries were supposed to be covered in sumac and coke with garlic paste: no paste, no sumac, and they were absolutely standard frozen fries that were presented with ketchup. We asked for more bread twice before it arrived and well after the apps that should have been eaten with it. Our “schwarma” was a chopped up cold chicken thigh with no Lebanese spices and again, no garlic paste or bread. It was deplorable.

    I found the noise level intolerable so I chose an outside table. That and the humus appetizer were the only positives about my dining experience. The waitress never brought us water--we had to ask another staff more than half way through our meal. We asked for a little more time to order entrees while we finished our drinks and appetizer. The waitress did not come back (we had asked her to come back in a few minutes after we had made our entree decisions) for it seemed about 40"!!!--it could have been longer, I did not check my watch. We complained to a staff who seemed to be in charge and she talked about how (once we finally got to order) that our choices would take some time. Our point was, that we hadn't even had a chance to get our orders in, let alone see the food we would be waiting for. We booked for a 6:30 res and finished at 9:00--an inordinate amount of time--w/out even ordering dessert. My friends insisted on paying. If I were in charge, I would have maybe given 15% (I only do that for poor service) before the tax. I will not be back and if friends ask, I will let them know of my experience.

    The noise level in our room was outrageously high, especially since there were few diners in the room. You should do something about the acoustics. My chicken schwarma salad was just ok. Not what I expected. Dry cut up chicken breast on salad ingredients. My friend was served coffee with cinnamon flavor, and could not get a cup of non-flavored coffee, even asking for it later--so she wasted her money. You should make clear that a cup of "regular coffee" will be cinnamon flavored. She should have been comped for that.

    The food is excellent. We had a CHEF'S PLATTER and a TAVERNA PLATTER between two of us and were more than satisfied. Their Pita bread is excellent, and their Mango Lassi is 5-star. We go here from time to time and are always glad to do so. Very friendly service. Also note that there many middle eastern people (from their dress) eating there so that's also an indication of their quality and authenticity.
