What a great find! Spent less than 24 hours in Rochester for a gig and had to figure out lunch for a group with all kinds of dietary restrictions (gluten free, no fried foods, no red meat, vegan - ugh)... IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT!

Gilad P.Manhattan, NY

Omg. This is something this area has been missing for awhile. Sure we have Aladdin 's downtown and in Pittsford, but it's more a mix of Middle Eastern and Greco origins. This is very Lebanese while trying to have something for everybody.

David D.Webster, NY

My husband and I went for a quick date night this past Saturday. We were served by the owner who was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Very proud of their food and heritage which you don't see often.

Christina M.Penfield, NY

I don't why I waited so long to try this place...I've always been impressed with the staff, the restaurant is spotlessly clean, and the prices are more than reasonable.

Mariah H.East Rochester, NY

Awesome Mediterranean food, with a heavy Lebanese influence...Most of the food was made right in front of me, which was nice. Ingredients looked fresh, and the menu seems pretty healthy.

Kareem K.Brooklyn, NY

I've eaten in & ordered take out - the food has been delish every time. Wonderful owners & employees. I have taken out-of-town guests & they've enjoyed the food, too. Try it out! You'll become a regular

Jacqueline E.Rochester, NY

If you like flavorful meals, then I recommend this place for lunch....You can even see the workers preparing the meat and the meal since there are large clear windows.
