    If you're hungry, go with the combo plate. Otherwise, chicken tawook is the best choice. Throw in a couple of sides and that awesome garlic sauce and you're set. Great Mediterranean fare.

    This is by far my favorite place to eat. Never have had a bad meal. Party platter is great for sharing with a group of people. Garlic potatoes are to die for.

    Try their fried potato and Kibbi. The chicken shawarma is the best. Falafel pita is good.

    The service here was decent, though not super attentive, but they were busy. I had the Seabass plate, the Seabass was tender and really tasty and the rice and salad were really flavorful and well-made

    The lamb pita lunch is excellent. Juicy chunks of lamb wrapped in pita. There is comfy outdoor seating. Nice vegetarian options. It can get a little noisy inside.

    Best Mediterranean in the states! The owner imports spices and ingredients from all around the world. The service is top notch. This place is a landmark in Belmont Shore, and for a good reason.

    Unless you want to spend $20 for an appropriately sized meal. Go somewhere else. Taste was nothing special and there lean beef / lamb blend just taste like a sausage.

    This place is great. Chicken Tawook is delicious, and don't forget to take home some garlic sauce! Only negative is they need to work on their presentation.
