Loved it. Fantastic lamb donar, delicious Uzbek bread, perfectly acceptible house red wine. Some people go here for the Italian options, but we love their Mediterranean choices, especially the lamb gyros, etc. Also, friendly wait staff and a surprisingly nice interior (dont let the strip mall location dissuade you.)

Stumbled on this gen this evening. Great staff, real concern for helping you, not often found at a cafe. Had the Mediterranean appetizer... perfect the grape leaves! Eggplant off the hook. Lamb kabobs done right. The rice was some of the best ever. All washed down with Russian beer.

I never had... More

Very disappointed tonight. I pick up dessert often - baklava - Usually a large, soft, sweet treat. Tonight, much different - about 50% of the size for 80% of the cost and tastes much different - not good. I tendered $10 for $9.68 bill and was not even offered the 32 cents change....Server could have cared less about me being... More

We ate here for dinner midweek. Food was good, not great. Portions were nice. Price was reasonable. With all of the touristy places in Key West, this was a nice change of pace. It's located in a strip mall next to a Mediterranean food (mostly jars/cans) store.

Great change from seafood! Prices are reasonable and the helpings are plenty! The salads were fresh and the hummus was very tasty too! The service was a little slow but it did not appear to be the server's fault...the two of them were running around like the chickens outside! The restaurant was full and people were constantly for take out!... More
