    I have never tried anything here that I didn't fall in love with and end up craving. For fast service, look up their menu online and call your order in ahead of time.

    We ordered our foo to go and they forgot to put in two items which is a shame. Otherwise the food was delicious especially the chicken fantastic and their cheesecake

    If it's busy, order the Chicken Fantastic or something else they don't have to cook. You'll get yours while the people ahead of you are still waiting.

    Food is good, service is always slow, no parking, so don't drive there. The Baklava is where it's at.

    Veggie Sambusas are great. Somali Tea is like a sweeter, lighter spicy chai. Very good!
