Definitely loved this place! The food was delicious! We had... the mutabal (baba gnoush), tabuleh salad, lamd and chicken tikka, their weekend special plate, and their mixed meats plate. Everything was flavorful and well seasoned. The prices were very agreeable and service was excellent. I will definitely return!read more
