  • Jennifer S.Everything we ordered was delicious and perfectly cooked. The Duck Heart dish was our favorite. The heart is slightly tangy and sweet. I ordered a gin cocktail off the menu that was super sweet.

  • Fed N.Get in here for happy hour - half priced hummus and drink dealage at the bar, where one never needs a reservation.

    55555 by Fed N.


  • Matt S.Best food in Philadelphia, hands down. Do the hummus & salads sampler to start, and follow with the crisp-fried cauliflower and the branzino. Do *not* miss the haloumi.

    55555 by Hannah G.


  • Molly S.Start with the fava bean hummus for a different and amazing flavor. Mezze Indulgence: the crispy haloumi. Vegetarians MUST order the smoked eggplant and lentils. Beverage of choice: the sig lemonada

    55555 by Molly S.
