Good food, very kind staff. The mixed appetizer plate is terrific and the Lavash bread is not to be missed! Good for takeaways or they have nice little dining area.

Been going here for over 2 years. Food is always consistently good. Not the greatest atmosphere, but the food makes up for it. Is a family-owned and operated business.
