Our most favorite Mediterranean cuisine place in NJ! The food is consistently delicious and the food portions are amazingly large. I have never had hummus so good anywhere else. -Mayank & Patty
the food isn?t bad, just average. the rice was a bit bland and too oily. the chicken was fine and so was the falafel. the portions are on the smaller side and it was a bit pricey. staff was very friendly though.
I was in the mood for Mediterranean food and found this spot. I called in my order of the tilapia lunch special with a very nice lady. When I arrived I parked in their lot. I walked in and was greeted. I paid about $15 and I left. When I got in I ate and the meal was very bland. The tilapia and the rice didn't have enough salt and seasoning. Wasn't a fan but had an ok experience.
Had a wonderful dinner on a Friday night. Although slightly busy, my friend and I had a great experience with the kind staff, attractive decor, delicious food, and reasonable prices. I was especially impressed with the excellent seasoning on the meat and was happy to have leftovers the next day.
My BFF and I decided to try this gem of a restaurant. We are middle eastern ourselves, so we have certain expectations of how this type of food should taste. We were blown away by every dish, right down to the hummus, which you can find every where these days. The chef is an exceptional food artist. The atmosphere was quiet and very nice. It?s a family owned and operated business and Tulin, (our server) and her sister were so friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be visiting this place again!
Sitting in the parking lot eating the falafel pita sandwich and just had to give a review. 10/10, it?s SO good. And they unexpectedly brought it out to the car when it was ready, which was much appreciated. Definitely will be back.
The lamb chop entree was so amazing on top of their wonderful side dishes.. My parents have come twice before and it was wonderful every time. They are so accommodating, kind, and it?s very much a family feel. I would back anytime I?m in town.
I really liked the ambience and service of this place, well maintained and really friendly people. I had the chicken Shish kebab as lunch special, the lentil soup was warm and tasted well, the shepherd salad was also okay, but had lot of big chucks of tomatoes and less of cucumbers. Warm bread was served. The Kebab was indeed the best, with white rice. I wish if there was a couple more grilled veggies like a grilled green pepper or egg plant. It had only grilled tomato. The coffee was really good, best indeed.
