This is a well established Arabic food restaurant, small in size, yet plenty of room at the table to have a conversation for a business lunch. I thought the prices were reasonable for the Downtown area.

We had great service at the small, clean kabob joint on Colfax, a block or so from the capitol building. The hummus is delicious and smooth and served with soft fresh pita. The gyro was very good and generous. The beef kabob was strangely seasoned and undercooked. The rice was tasty. I would go back and have another gyro for... More

This is a well-established, fast casual Arabic food joint a quick 5 minute walk from the state capitol area. Unlike a soul-less downtown greasy spoon, this place has a nice atmosphere and seems to be family-owned and run by some friendly Syrian-Americans. The server was a nice young man. The menu concentrates on a handful of classics, including of course... More

Based on the reviews, this place has a lot of fans but we we're disappointed with the food quality and taste. Ordered the chicken shawarma and chicken kabob platters. There was plenty of food and the service was friendly. The green salad was way past its prime with some slimey pieces. The entrees were very average-have had much better at... More

This is a small but very good Middle Eastern restaurant. I eaten in and ordered take away. In both cases the service was very good and the food was execellent.

Very nice Syrian family owns & operates this.. the Shawerma is to die for.. My favorite is the chicken Shawerma on rice.. omg, the hummus here is killer as well. The garlic dip.. *sigh* EVERYTHING is good! Service is not 100% the best, but I've had far far worse. Only downside I ever have is the parking. They're just a... More

Very good food -- not cheap but not too pricey Service is uneven and trends toward the bad -- they seem to always have another cousin waiting tables who knows nothing about the menu or anything else -- They also charge for extras -- a dollop of sauce costs a buck -- It also gets stuffy and whenever you're assured...

This is the best Syrian/Middle Eastern food in Colorado. Period. The gyro meat is delicious and the portion size is overly generous while the prices are extremely reasonable. Hummus is the best I've ever eaten. Creamy, flavorful, addictive. Pita is warm soft and tasty.

Was not very busy both times I dined in. seated quickly, offered a beverage, and food arrived very fast. Delicious, fresh, authentic food. ordered an appetizer and gyros as my entree both times; the portions are very generous. took home a baklava dessert. Reasonably priced, open late, located directly on Colfax, no dedicated parking lot.
