I'm addicted to this place! They have the best falafel I have ever had and it's on the lunch buffet! Their grape leaves and lentil soup are also amazing (the soup comes with the lunch buffet but you have to request it). The hummus and baba gnoush are decent but not the best I have ever had. Definitely one of... More

I am not sure what's meant to be Mediterranean about this restaurant, although if we are talking about the eastern end of that sea, then okay. The truth is, however, that it's a Middle Eastern restaurant with typical Arabic cuisine. Good shawarma and kibbeh and the like, all at a reasonable price and served promptly, either to dine in or...

The food you all eat at this place might like Mediterranean, but it dose not taste good at all. This is one of the worst food I ever tried in Cincinnati.

Great place, great service, the falafel is one of the best I had in a long time. Their mint lemonade is also very good. It is clean, quick and convenient.

Easy to miss. Get directions. Food is good, buffet is popular and it should be. It's Middle Eastern/Arab foods. The owner closes for communal prayer time on Fridays. Prices are moderate.

Today I was out with several friends exploring the parks while the weather is nice, and after the storms began to blow in it was suggested we go to eat. Not far from Clifton, we decided to drive that direction while answering the penultimate American question of the new millennium; where to get food. Our deliberations led us to one... More

Freshly made fatoush, hummus, and countless other goodies on the lunch buffet make this charming spot a must whenever we are in the Clifton area. The wait staff was more than helpful.
