Carrie C., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on January 15th, said: "Wow! How about that? So many food choices to please the family. We had lasagna, butter chicken, and greek food around our table in the same restaurant! Lots of space, friendly staff, and a lovely square to walk after the meal."

Yelper Andy L. added: "Great to see familiar faces and the good food they make...and even closer to home! Lamb curry, butter chicken, chicken kabob, hummus, and baba ganoush were all hot out of the kitchen and tasty."

And Mahesh S. said: "Picked up some falafel pita wraps on their first soft opening day. We loved the dish and they are reasonably priced as well. Wait wasn't that bad. Will be back soon"
