    The Najib Special is the best cauliflower I've ever had.

    Heading there for lunch? Arrive by 11:30 if you don't have a reservation.

    The lamb kibbeh is good, but very different from fried kibbeh if you are used to that.

    All around delicious food. The falafel is a must have.

    The chicken was a-freaking-maxing. I personally had the lamp (which was also good), gf had the chicken and I couldn't stop eating her entree.

    The falafel is fantastic. The Turkish coffee is a big pot, do don't drink it alone unless you like bouncing off walls.

    Daniel Roy · January 29, 2015

    Only eaten here once so far, but it was one of the best meals I've ever had. Vegan options, great prices and fresh juices have won me over!

    Bryce Evans · December 2, 2014
  • Ada J.

    Famous for "Najib's special", it's must for any order. To take the edge off a long day order the Grapefruit Gimlet

    Ada Juristovski · October 24, 2014
  • Miguel B.

    The Turkish coffee here tastes simply beau-ti-ful !

    Miguel Barragán · September 28, 2014

    Najib's Special and the falafel. Get those for sure. The eggplant dish is also very easily vegan and fantastic. Every location has it a bit different which is great.

    Delicious! Really enjoyed it and there were lots of vegan options.

    Laura Jones · May 11, 2014
  • Estrellada K.

    Everything was delicious and their cocktails are unique and satisfying. The quinoa cake was a little over baked.

    Estrellada King · February 2, 2014

    The lamb sirloin and house made sangria were awesome!

    Renatha Tavares · January 30, 2014

    The lunch plates are especially filling and very reasonably priced. Try the Najib's Special. Friendly staff to boot!

    The owner was super nice to us! I would go back just to chat with him again. Najib's Special and the Duck was good!

    The juices are very fresh and definitely worth it.

  • Megan H.

    Baba ghanouj is amazing, order it with cucumbers for a completely vegan/ gluten free option apposed to the pita bread. Their holistic drinks are the bombdotcom, and the sea scallops are delicious!

    Megan Hill · May 28, 2013
  • Jake O.

    Deluxe toasted veggie pita for lunch is phenomenal.

    Jake Owens · February 12, 2013

    The red wine sangria is incredible. Also try "La Feast". It's a great way to sample a bunch of favorites.
