Great food with heavy portion size and authentic taste. All dishes were great, we ordered vegetable platter, fish on rice, and Keshma chicken. The rice was very flavorful and the meat was very soft and fresh.

The atmosphere is casual diner with several ethnic touches. The food is bold, rich, flavorful. Some dishes have a kick, just enough to enhance the complex flavor without overwhelming it. Generous portions, moderately priced. Our waitress was just the right amount of friendly and attentive....More

This is a new middle eastern restaurant in this city. Food quality is excellent. Restaurant is very clean. It was a korean restaurant that failed secondary to mediocre food. This is a much better replacement. Presentation was very good of all the dishes. Negatives, few....More
