I found the restaurant since it is just across my hotel. Small but beautiful. The food, especially the lamb, is excellent..tender and tasty. The location is a bit far from the main Berkeley city..but if you stay or pass by this area, definitely this is a good choice.

It does not have excessive amount of sugar and is a great way to end a spicy meal at this restaurant.

The restaurant was the closest to where we were staying. It's very small (5 tables) but was packed soon after we were seated. Great food. Ice wasn't available the day we went.

Thank John L
