Had the Lamb Kabob, and a side of spinach & mushroom pie. Large salad came with the kabob, so the added side was a bit more than I needed. Food was very good, especially the grilled veggies with the kabob. Service was friendly and attentive....More

This is good place to eat in the central part of Philadelphia. Despite the place being almost full, the lone waitress was cheerful and friendly while coping up with orders and service. The food was fresh and tasty. Don't expect a great ambience.

My fiancée had the grilled veggies. She enjoyed it very much. The rice that came with it was flavorful. I had to stop myself from eater by it all. The restaurant itself was a nice quiet restaurant good for a nice conversation.

We enjoyed this fine cafe for lunch. Very convenient to City Hall. Small but attractive. The owner himself greeted us and made recommendations. We had grilled lamb kabob and grilled marinated chicken. Served with rice and grilled vegetables. Wonderful.

Small middle eastern restaurant. We love the food which is very tasty and carefully presented. We also love the drinks, especially yaran, a yogurt drink, imported. They also have nice selection of juices. Highly recommended for a family or friend outing before or after theatre....More

A good, simple BYO Lebanese restaurant in the heart of Philadelphia's center city, meters away from the Kimmel concert hall, the Opera House, and the Walnut/Chestnut shopping area. They serve a 25$ sampler including nicely grilled meat, kofta, hummus, fava bean paste, etc. More than...More

It was a cozy spot, a small restaurant, with an open kitchen in the back. There were a couple of tables that were empty, which eventually filled up as the time passed. But overall, a clean comfortable casual place. The menu had plenty of options,...More

Not sure if they serve wine. The ambience is not that great that you'd have wine. Beer maybe; but I'm not sure they serve that either.
