Ate here for lunch during a brief trip back to DC. Same tasty food and attentive service we remembered. Hummus trio was great as were the lamb dishes.

Tried the chicken kabob and wasn't disappointed. Friends tried the humous platter and samosas; equally good. Busy and well located for local mall.

We came here for a meal as part of a group attending a conference nearby. With relatively short notice they had an area set aside for us with a large table. The food was delicious and the staff were helpful with their recommendations.

Love the homemade lemmonade, lentil soup and trio of hummus. Fresh pita bread delicious. Even my mega picky mother loves this place.
