I have been coming to this palce for years now and it's always been an excellent experience each time. I intirduced a couple of frineds to thi8s place and they absolutely love it. Their special platter is bifg enough for 2 people; but I always order the beef kabob plate. The meat is so tender; I also love their mediterranean hot tea. The service is excellent and we never have to wait for a table or for our food. I will definitely keep on coming back and bring in more firneds in the process..

We had their combo plate for two which provided an excellent chance to sample many of their dishes. Some were more to my taste than others, but the kebobs and falafel were outstanding! The meat was perfectly seasoned and not overcooked. The veggies miraculouslly were also properly cooked. The falafel was a huge surprise because I have never been impressed, but they were a lovely combination of crunch and satisfying savory substance. The tahini sauce was delicious and much thicker than I've had in the past. Their feta cheese and pita bread were also stand-outs. We will be back!

We enjoyed trying some different food. The two person special was a great way to try a few different foods. The restaurant is small and a little crowded. The guitar player was very enjoyable. Though I did not have any children with me it did not seem very children friendly.
