Excellent lentil soup, great Shawarmah, hummus that can't be beat and so much more. Atmosphere is fairly relaxed, so you don't have to get all dressed up to enjoy a top notch meal. Price is very fair, particularly for the quality of the food. Highly recommended.

Located in a small strip mall in Airport Blvd an unexpected surprise. Authentic Mediterranean cuisine, the lentil soup is out of this world, full of flavor. More than generous portions, great service, and friendly staff. A hidden gem in West Mobile, Al

Ever since being introduced to gyros in Chicago, years and years ago, I have been trying the various restaurants' offerings when I find them. Ideally, they'd make them with rotisserie "Kronos" brand meat. I ordered a gyro, here, and noted it had been made with preformed gyro meat. The taste was slightly bland, so I won't be going back.

Visited for first time on Sunday. Buffet only. Excellent assortment of dishes. Lamb shank was especially good. Moussaka excellent. Hummus is some of the best you'll find. Really enjoyed the mix. Servers did a good job of clearing dishes and refilling drinks.

Well I have eaten Middle Eastern food from Texas to Israel & Egypt and many in between. I always seem to find a Middle Eastern restaurant in any town... its not the best I have ever had but its not the worst. We had the buffet on a Sunday afternoon. The chicken was delicious, but the hummus was terrible. Clean... More

You might think this is just a little hole in the wall, but don't pass it by! We went here with a group of 8 and even though this cafe is small, they were able to accommodate us with no problem. There were several other groups dining at the same time, but our food came fast and service was great!... More

We went there for dinner last night and as always, it was great. I read some of the reviews and was surprised that some didn't like it. To each his own, but the four of us enjoyed it. Good food and a nice waiter. We will be back!

Worst excuse for food of the Middle East they serve Mall Pita bread, very tough to screw up Hummus but they can do it! Nothing edible. I don't know how they even stay in business, horrible service. Tried it twice never ever again and I live in Mobile!

Unassuming strip mall location is hiding a great restaurant. My wife and I had our first date here so many years ago, and each time we return we leave impressed. The servers know the menu and the food. Between us we have eaten the entire menu and it is all top notch.

This is a nice restaurant and we had a pleasant lunch here but overall we all agreed that we had better middle eastern food at other restaurants across the Gulf Coast. It was the first restaurant of this type I have tried in Mobile and we were glad that we tried it but with the sheer number of restaurants in... More
