    Wife and I order food here about once a week. The food is wonderful. We haven't had a disappointing dish yet. Appetizers from dips to pies cannot be missed. We enjoy spinach pies, hummus, cheese, and meat pies. One of our favorite dishes is the Chicken Shawarma, tender well seasoned chicken over rice with garlic sauce comes with a side salad or hummus.

The hummus we spread over everything. Finally the baklava is one of the best I have tasted in town. I usually get three pieces and don't share. I save one More info
