What People Say About Us


If you have never had middle eastern food then this should be the first place you go! Great atmosphere and friendly workers. Food is very very good! Try the couscous!


My Favorite Place For Authentic Mediterranean Food!

What can i say except everything is so good. The vegetarian platter is my favorite, followed by the Greek salad with lamb or chicken. Nice atmosphere and belly dancing and live music on Saturday evenings. I am a native to Asheville and this is hands down one of my favorite restaurants in town! One of the few left that’s been downtown for over twenty years. Staff is very friendly and helpful as well!
