When you first walk in you are greeted by the staff and a falafel while you choose your food! Hot and fresh from the kitchen, makes you want to order a whole plate of falafel right then and there. The restaurant offers such a home-made feel with their food, decor and friendly staff. Too bad they are on the high side for my budget or else I'd eat here ALL THE TIME. Given the prices, they give decent to large portions. Even the boyfriend couldn't finish his plate!
First time we were here we got the Kufta Kabab Wrap and something else, but it doesn't matter. Everything here tastes DELICIOUS. Additionally, the manager was there when we were dining and could tell we were first timers. He graciously offers us each a taste of their tea (something mint flavored I believe). Again, delicious.
Second time Sharwerma chicken plate and the Combination plate. The baba ghanoush (its like an eggplant dip, consistency of the hummus) was DELICIOUS. If i could, I'd eat that for forever.
Warm pitas, yum falafels, yum bab ghanoush, friendly manager YUM YUM YUM EAT EAT EAT.

The falafel is fantastic! Then the flaky filo dough'd baklava, walnut and pistachio. And if you lean toward more tahini than lemon in your hummus like myself, you'll like the hummus and babaganoush here. The owner is a friendly local of many years who really treats you like you're in his own home. When we ate here, he made a round through the dining area and passed out hot mint tea, on the house. It's the little things, and of course the frittered falafels which will have me returning here for certain.

One of my favorite restaurants in town. I always order the shawerma plate! Its very tasty and extremely healthy, the Dolmas are extremely good as well. I would suggest ordering one of the many deserts they have on hand as well.Recommended for:Foodies

Delicious. Had the Falaffel plate with hummus and a salad. They had whole wheat pita bread to accompany the dish. The Jordanian owners were very friendly and gave us some free tea to go with our lunch. Good find in Palo Alto for some authentic eats.

I could eat here very day. Their lamb and beef schwarma wraps are some of the best I've ever had. The falafel is good, as is the hummus, and I love their tea. The owners are friendly and welcoming, and have put up with my attempts to speak Arabic with them. There is inside and outside seating, and it's also a good option if you want to grab something to go, or are looking for a catering option.
