It is nothing fancy. You walk downstairs. You then have the best meal. I wish I wrote my review more timely. I forgot the apps we had. But see the chicken. Tender. Seasoned. Delicious. I wish I had a microwave in my hotel room. I would have wanted to enjoy this for another dinner. Hope to go back.

This family has brought family recipes to a small, friendly downstairs location in Squirrel Hill, with abundant servings and attentive service. I had Loobyeh and Lamb ($16.50) - a large bowl of green beans and very tender lamb chunks all stewed in a light tomato sauce, a full plate of rice pilaf, and a house salad with grated feta cheese...
