I had an informal business lunch here on a Saturday, and it was a very pleasant experience. The service was attentive without being intrusive, and we all shared the meza lunch, which was a great way to sample a wide array of the delicacies on offer. The Moroccan mint tea is also delicious! I'd come back here if I were... More

The restaurant is a cozy little place in Lower Pacific Heights, with a homey vibe. It's crowded, which to me is always a good sign. We waited a few minutes at the bar for a table, but they had some unique beers (my first Armenian and Lebanese beers) to try. The meal it self was good to very good, but... More

Met my Noe-dwelling friend here for lunch recently. This is a small cafe without table service. A decent array of omelets, sandwiches, etc. Strong coffee.

Just stopped by for s light lunch and went for the lentil salad and a beer, my wife had lentil soup and a cider. All excellent and the salad had plenty of nice leaf (no iceberg in sight!) plus lentils, feta, carrot, tomato and a nice dressing. They prepare everything fresh on site and it shows. Prices very reasonable and... More

Every time I am in SF I make a bee line for this place. Consistent, comfy, love the street/people watching and love the food. Always a perfect 10 on the food no matter the day of the week or time of day I have gone. Great value, friendly service and just really, really good food.

Middle Eastern food done right, this neighborhood institution has been serving delicious hummus, falafels, lamb and chicken, and a incredible salads for over 20 years. It has survived this long because it's so good, and reasonably priced. If your visiting, come here and eat like a local.

This little place serves phenominal food, and is a little off the beaten path! Everything was tasty, beautifully served, and not at all expensive.

Stumbled upon this gem and I must say I thought the food wasn't going to be quite as amazing as it was. I got the Mediterranean plate that featured one item from all the entrees, man out of this world. The dessert was even better. Great prices.
