    Our food critic Robert Sietsema says the Haneez is so tender and flavorful that “a toothless guy could enjoy it.” It’s ranked number 2 on his top lamb dishes in NYC.

    Delicious babaganoug and hummus! Puffy bread they serve with it is dangerously good.

    Try the Salta - Lamb and okra stew served in a cast iron bowl that sizzled and steamed for nearly 10 minutes! Wow! (via @Foodspotting)

    Not sure abt the hype. Haneeth was dry and not huge (there was a ton of rice). People rant abt the free soup/salad but the entree costs $20 for a reason. Go if ur in the hood but don't make a trip.
