    The proof is in the meze - the wood-smoked baba ghannouj, the deft grape leaves, the silky, nutty hummus. And the chicken shawarma’s inclduing beet-pickled turnips and homemade garlic and hot sauces.

    The Lamb Shawarma is exquisitely spiced (is that allspice?), has the perfect amount of tzatziki, and comes in a thin home made bread that doesn't distract from the intricate flavors within. Winner.

    Family-run Lebanese restaurant using the freshest ingredients. Shared several small plates and they were all tasty, fresh, and delicious. No cork fee on Wednesdays!

    Everything is so delicious and fresh! From the moist chicken to the tahini and the baklava. Can't wait to come back here and eat an entire platter again!

    I've never had a bad meal here. The falafel, hummus, cauliflower, split pea soup and spinach pie are all to die for. Always wonderful service too!

    The Baklava is the BEST! Made from scratch and perfectly sweet with a nice light crunch. Most importantly the staff was very courteous and attentive!

    Wafa's has graduated from takeout specialist to a full sit-down restaurant. Check out the new location and a true neighborhood gem.
