The serve mediterranean foods.... mixture of lebanese and greek. We ordered a starter platter which was good but was served with limited pita bread and more were charged.... this is not a regular practice.

Main Dishes were OK but not wow! The ambience is dark and so long we were there, there was only once more table with guests. The bar seems to be nice. Server was friendly but not very efficient. May be she has to help in kitchen too!

Not a place for a nice romantic dinner or an evening to enjoy.

We're exhausted! In the fast moving restaurant merry-go-round this spot takes the first place award. Transit Rd, Elmwood Ave, Allen Street, Main near UB, farther down Sheridan....where have we forgotten?
the roots are still here.....great falafal, hummus, lamb and all your favorites are here, but unfortunately not in the cheap falafal stand cheap form. Plates are more upscale and pricey now. Still very good, but the experience looses something in the translation, in my opinion. Still a great experience and nothing like Greek greasy spoon food. So many varied options for vegetarian, fish, chicken, beef....you'll find something to love. Off menu: try their fries with tahini dressing.

Friendly, prompt service, local beer, good food. I ordered the falafel hummus wrap and greek potatoes. It wasn't a "I need to come back and bring all my friends!" kind of meal but more of a "Yeah, I'd come back some time" sort of experience. Menu items seemed just a tiny bit overpriced.

Had large family visiting Buffalo. Our meal satisfied everyone's diets and preferences. Sample platters are recommended as everyone was able to try new things. Lamb dishes were very good, as were wraps, salads. Waitress was excellent! Suggested different beers to try with everyone satisfied with them. Accommodated our requests except they said they were out of Turkish coffee when we ordered it after dinner.
