Went to have dinner...found it moved to 2424 Dempster. Went again on Sunday July 9th at midday and found it was closed. Lost a favorite close-by restaurant in Skokie, but Evanstonians will be happy! Looks bigger from outside.

This restaurant is in downtown Skokie. The food and service are very good. I have been here several times and it never fails to exceed my expectations. The chicken and lamb kabobs are excellent, as is the lamb shank. Appetizers are also recommended. The service...More

Nice, fairly large seating area but moving I think over the summer about 3 miles away. Tasty food. Large portions. Pretty sure it's a BYOB.
