The food is very tasty and there is lots on the menu for gluten free dining. The portions are large. I shared a plate and some domas with another person and we had more than enough to sate our hunger. Great value.

We came upon this restaurant on our drive home from San Francisco as we were looking for Mediterranean cuisine. At first blush it was not exactly what my vision was but their food was very good. I had the chicken Shawarma and hummus plate and the flavor was good and the hummus was excellent. Good portion and not overpriced. Parking... More

My wife and I stopped here after a hike. We were very happy to find this top notch Mediterranean eatery. Although they do sell hamburgers too. From my wife: We had the combination Shawerma platter which was excellent! A side of hummus, babaganoush and falafel were equally delicious. The owner is very nice and very proud as he should be!...

I ate dinner here with friends when they were close to closing--but they let us order. The food was really good and a great value. Decor is cheap--think Formica. But a great value for good food.

Have eaten here often: The chicken dishes are great, with a Mediterranean flair. Come here for a casual visit or a take-out: The decor is plain and uninviting (and cool in winter) so this is not the place for an "occasion."

One of my frequent lunch stops. Great food, fast friendly service, good views out the window at Solano & The Alameda. Quite affordable and so delicious. Try the Jerusalem Falafel; it's a whole meal.

Picked up a falafel platter to go. Found a bloody bandaid embedded in the falafel. Disgusting and DANGEROUS. I brought it back and they were unfazed. Offered to make me another one. No thank you.
