Very good food and service. The restaurant is very cozy and romantic. We love visiting this unique restaurant on every trip to SF.
If you love Mediterranean food you would love it. we tried appetizers, entrees and dessert plus organic Turkish tea - all was excellent.
Healthy & tasty – It is a winner of SF gate for 2010 best of the bay mediterranean cuisine, I love the grilled Salmon & the almond saffron pudding, it is no milk or cream pudding but amazing.
I'm hooked – hands down and thanks for the server who made the event a delightful experience.
It was pretty delicious food, amazing kebab plate.
If you want a fresh homemade baklava this is the place, they have pistachio or walnut beside the fresh mozzarella w/ricotta Konafa, yummy
Delightful place – Friday night dinner of 5, exceptional food, nice service, do NOT forget to ask for the soup du jour, it is a killer and if you have a sweet tooth the desserts here are out of this word
HANDS DOWN – A group of 6, came here Wednesday night, the night before thanksgiving, we had the following:
Salmon fillet plate, Latkes (potato pancakes), Grilled Chicken kebab plate, Grilled Lamb kebab plate, Prawn kebab, the Shawerma plate & 2 large ball of Shrimp Saffron soup with asparagus.
For dessert: Pistachio Baklava, Walnut Baklava, Saffron rice pudding & sesame cookies with Pistachio.
Amazing 10 out of 10 on a 10 scale.
that is the only thing I could say.
I thought to share it with the community.
The soups are amazing – Beside how awesome the food at this place but the kind of soups they serve are just outstanding, I had today at lunch the saffron shrimp soup w/asparagus and the Latkes plate ( potato pancakes) amazing, last week I had for dinner the red lentil soup and salmon fillet plate.
My compliment to the chef
Pretty solid Mediterranean dishes, I've been here many times by myself or with a group, you never go wrong with anything, prices are reasonable too, they have very delicious desserts so make sure to spare some space for it.
Great place for parties – We had a birthday party last Saturday night, the food was amazing, knowledgeable staff, everything was great, the prawn kebab was VERY delicious, I mean it, I can't get enough of it
Jewel – I read about it At 7X7 magazine, we went there 4 of us for a dinner amazing food, they have different kind of kebab, the prawn kebab was fabulous, huge and smells great, try the saffron rice pudding for a dessert, wonderful.
