My wife loves Arabic and Mediterranean foods. I suggested We try this restaurant as it seemed to suit her style. The waitress was very nice when we got there. That was our highlight. We waited quite a while while she catted at the counter before coming back to take our orders. We placed our orders and iced tea. The tea... More

Hello sir, I am sorry to hear you were disappointed with your visit. We do make all of our food in the house and use quality ingredients. Our iced tea is not sweetened and has sage, mint, chamomile, rose petals, anise and fennel seeds so I can understand how it may tasted different. Again I am sorry and I hope... More

Been looking for a great Mediterranean restaurant in VB, finally found it! Fresh, well seasoned and healthy food. They use quality ingredients and offer many vegetarian and gluten free options. The service was great and the price was right. The fresh made lemonade was awesome. I've traveled all around the Mediterranean and this food is spot on! Will be going... More

Located in a shopping center, next to a wild bird story and shoe repair shop you can imagine that it isn't real upscale but don't not go because it is where it is and a little hard to find. Very simple interior with lots of boards on the wall highlighting the day's specials, new wines they have and desserts. Always... More

The chicken shawarma platter was delicious.... More

Best middle eastern food I have had including new york places I have been too! So good that you must try it. The grouper dish is what I ordered and it was mmmm. My daughters got the fattoush salad they loved it. The falafel is great and the grape leaves were good in the appetizer platter.

The restaurant was busy tonight. We had to wait a bit for different courses, but the staff was very sweet and helpful in explaining the various options. Their servings are very generous, and the prices are very reasonable.The individual mezze platter is large enough for two moderate eaters, especially if you add an additional side or appetizer. The falafels are... More
