Went with two friends for the 1st time to try this out. The manager was a great host very attentive when needed & friendly as well. Food was delicious, I’m also Indian so when i asked for spicy i thought it would be “American spicy”but it was the right spicy to enjoy all the flavors with a good heat Definitely telling my mom and others about this spot

All our courses were outstanding. Our branzino and Mediterranean chicken were terrific along with the sides (go for the bulgur side)! The baklava was scrumptious! Service was excellent. The ingredients in our food were fresh and delicious! A new best restaurant for us!
