    I came here for the first time tonight. The fresh house made hummus, pita bread, tabuleah, and chicken was amazing. Some of the best Mediterranean food I have had in a long time. So good and cheap!!

    Get their family meal - $16 for a full chicken, large cabbage salad, large houmus and a bag of pitas. Add a tabouleh and you have a nice healthy meal for the entire family or share with friends.

    The food here is really good. If you are trying to be healthy there are several options that will accommodate you. You can get a family size meal that will feed four people for about $20-25.

    You can swap out the radishes and hummus in your plate meal for other items like rice or salad. Be sure to ask.

    Hummus, garlic spread, some chicken in a pita and you're good to go for an easy meal at a decent price.

    Get a family meal for only $16.00. Feeds four. Includes a whole chicken, pita pack, cabbage salad, hummus, and garlic sauce. Cheaper than just getting individual meals.

    Compared to the Glendale location the chicken portion seems bigger, but it also has a lot of chicken fats! Try the other items on the menu, perhaps just not the chicken =\

    Shish is the best, but you have to wait ten minute, and they ain't kidding. Totally worth it though.
