Very disappointed. The beef shawarma had little seasoning and the garlic sauce tasted like plain mayonnaise. Also the Jerusalem salad and Tabouleh salad had way too much mayonnaise in it.

Just tried this place for the first time, amazing! Was torn between the chicken shawarma bowl or the classic chicken over rice, but I went with the bowl. Absolutely delicious! I cannot wait to go back now and try the chicken over rice! So fresh and flavorful

Omg I love this place. The food is always perfectly fresh, clean and healthy tasty dishes, reasonable prices . I order grub hub from them always. They have an excellent menu if you enjoy middle eastern. I had to experiment but found some great dishes. I don't even know the names. Just damn good food!

Tasty Mediterranean dishes! Arrived upon opening, so we had to wait for a little bit on our dishes, but everything was nice and fresh so that made up for the wait. The Gyro plate was good. My lunch buddies tried the rice plate and bowl. Will definitely go back!

First time visit here. The Chicken Falafel was fresh and tasty. Loved the garlic sauce. Regular rice was ok. Next time, I would get a side of sauce to add with it. I would visit again and try the bowl next.Thanks for the tasty experience!

Delicious Mediterranean food. Can eat as cleanly as you like and still be satisfied. Staff was super friendly and helpful.

The website and GrubHub say you can order for delivery up to 8.30 but at 8.10 it tells you it's closed. Has happened twice now. Need to sort this out because the food is fantastic

First and foremost: the staff are unmasked despite a state-wide order. If this matters to you, then skip the restaurant entirely. The food is at once better than expected and worse. The plates (e.g. the chicken shawarma) includes options to choose lots of vegetables and sauces, but doesn't include rice. The falfel wrap offers the promise if a great sandwich with what seems like dozens of potential choices of toppings. Sadly, mine was soggy despite picking it up directly from and eating outside the restaurant.

Friendly people, atmosphere was great my first time eating Mediterranean food, I had a chicken bowl with Arabic salad, lettuce, pickled turnips, topped with ranch dressing delicious.


I’ve been coming to this place for years. Probably eaten here 40 times. The food has stayed consistent and fresh and flavorful. Which is rare. Customer service is great too. Never had a problem. I would definitely recommend them.

I love this place! Great, authentic food, sizable portions, fair prices and everything made fresh. But what really sets it apart is the streamlined ordering process, which honestly a lot of local Mediterranean places miss the mark on. You can order a feast and be in and out in 5min, whereas other places you either have to call and order ahead or prepare for a 20-30min wait.
