Very good middle eastern fare. I like this place a lot. Very tasty food, friendly, fun waitstaff, modestly priced. They have the best pastitsio (a Greek dish!) I’ve had around here.
I miss the days when they had oud music there. Years ago, I remember being there one afternoon when SU was in the NCAA tournament. They had the tournament on TV in the restaurant. Shortly after they lost, Rony Seikaly walked in with his girlfriend. It was somewhat surreal, having just seen him on TV, and everyone consoled the dispirited giant. I remember how tiny his girlfriend seemed in comparison to him.
