Authentic and friendly place for Mediterranean food., 8/18/2014
Reviewer: Hugh from Santa Barbara, CA
I've eaten here 3 times now and took a friend who was pleased. The chicken Shwarma here is much better than IVD as is the hummus. The Babaganoush is fantastic and I recommend it as a side. The sandwich is the better deal. The plate has only one pita, the same amount of meat but much more hummus and tahini, its $2 more. Maybe ask for another pita with that. A real brick oven in here, it's all handmade in front of you. Owner is very friendly and let me have some samples when we went on a slow day. Interesting soda dispenser with dozens of choices is cool. I see they have coffees and teas. There are some desserts too I need to try. Everything was exceptionally fresh. We donít have enough of this style of food in the area and this place stands out as a really tasty and cozy place. Itís a bit different than I have had before; there are several dishes Iíve never heard of so I intend to return again soon. Letís try to keep this place open.

I have had to go to Los Angeles to find tasty and authentic middle eastern food. This place is fantastic! Great selection of traditional dishes. I just worry about the location. It does not really stand out and is difficult to see or find from the center of IV. I wish the owner were downtown. This place would be a goldmine! I am middle eastern and can attest to how good the food is. I will be going back a lot.

Good Schwarmas here, authentic. Food portions a bit small. Definitely worth a try. Nice people here. Off the loop, nice facility with inside/outside seating. Limited parking. If craving Middle Eastern/Mediterrean give it a try.
