I love this place! The food is great the people are amazing. Make sure you make reservations and see the belly dancing show. It is wonderful!

Very funky, cool atmosphere, excellent hosts, great belly dancing show (with lots of encouraged audience participation!) My only complaint was that, at last on the Friday night we went, it was a set multi-course meal that you only got to choose the entrée for, and was pretty expensive.

The restaurant seemed quite tired, as if they are hanging on to the glory of days gone by. It was dead empty save one other family with a toddler. The other "guests" were clearly belly dancers waiting to perform. The food was overly salted and while the waitress said that the Lamb dish I ordered was her favorite, the meat was tough and the vegetables over cooked ...and OH THAT SALT. We took the leftovers home and attempted to rinse out the salt and save the dish. When the belly dancing started we had already finished our entire meal including dessert - it was a job getting them to give us the check as they were clearly delaying because the dancing was starting -but we were not ordering further drinks and it was time to leave. The one dancer gyrated all over the floor and managed to get $l.00 in her g-string from one of the other waiting dancers. She inappropriately kept approaching us even though we avoided eye contact and clearly were waiting to leave. It was awkward and very uncomfortable. The way they handled the Groupon purchase was clever enough - starters were automatic - soup and an appetizer. The dinner choices were several. The hand washing into a bowl was a nice touch and tired notwithstanding - the seats were comfy and the low table and cushions invited a laid back eating experience. But overall...it was very disappointing.
