My eldest son had been here before and loved it - so when he, his bro and I (Dad) went out for the evening this was our choice. An absolutely wonderful experience. With our reservations we were greeted with a smile and seated immediate/y. Their Saturday special was their Lamb Shank, it was Delicious, two very large shanks, but a bit less lamb I had hoped for - nonetheless a great entree... This entree was served with a heaping amount of vegetable rice - a wonderful taste in fact totally covered the shanks... So much rice I had plenty to take home - and of course included some lamb bits. My wife took it to work Monday - her coworkers loved the smell and better yet my wife loved the rice...

My sons choose the 'Combination Kabobs" and really enjoyed their meals... We all shared - their kabobs were great, but I thought my shank dish was over the top.


This is a hidden gem and we will definitely return - I suggest reservations as all tables were filled as a quaint little restaurant...

No obnoxiously loud music. Nicely decorated. The servers are super nice and attentive.
We came here on a weekday for lunch, when it is quieter.
The chicken is a bit on the dry side, but we enjoyed it as its nicely charred. My shish kabob is more of a medium well or well done instead of the medium that I ordered.
As for the hummus, I'm used to the ones that as a bit more tahini and lemon. But then again, its more like personal preference. The one they serve there is still good.
The portions are good size.

The Lamb shank served only on Saturday was slow cooked for 8 hours. Fell off the bone rich flavor. The reasonable corkage allows for us to pair it with some cellared Pinot noir. The service was excellent . The salad was wonderful. We always finish with the rosewater ice and Safron ice cream paired with tea.
Wonderful !
