This is a true gem of a restaurant in Albany. The music is quite nice (Arabic music), tea is really good, and the food has always been fresh and full of flavor. Highly recommend visiting this restaurant.

Had the combination plate with lamb kebob - everything was both authentic and delicious! Husband had kebob platter and down to the rice (not just plain white rice, but wonderfully spiced) was excellent. Will definitely return and highly recommend.

Food was delicious and prepared fresh for us. The owner was efficient, friendly and relaxed. The atmosphere was casual and quiet, allowing for conversation. Highly recommended! Falafel was tasty and the eggplant sandwich was scrumptious.
