Saw others having tea so ordered a pot along with some baklava. Both were delicious. The tea cups were beautiful which made the experience even more special. We were there a long... More

Super friendly staff, fresh food. I had the Gyro with Feta and it was really good. The French Fries were nice too. The wife and daughter had the Chicken Swarma and the falafel which were also good. If you like Mediterranean food this place is worth a try.

Under new management everything changed for worst. No more extras. My favorite chicken sandwich has no more potatoes in it. Garlic sauce doesn't taste like garlic sauce anymore. Very disappointed. I was loyal lama customer since they opened, but I won't be back

My wife's meal was an entree and the portion was generous. Still she finished it as it was too good to stop eating! My Gyro was maybe... More

Very generous portion. Fresh ingredients, great seasoning and the chops were cooked to perfection by Chef Mo. I ordered it to go. Everything was separately wrapped which made it easy to re-arrange and present (see photo). The cafe is very clean and the decor is simple and pleasing. Very family friendly.
