This Greek/Middle Eastern newcomer draws FIU students from across the street for solid shawarma and falafel, but the star is the baklava. Flecked with pistachio or walnuts, for a mere buck and a quarter, the flaky delicacy is a godsend in Greek-poor Miami. Have yours with a cup of super-aromatic espresso and, perhaps, an academic conversation with a stranger.

Amazing food! Amazing Desserts! Chicken Kabobs are on fire!!! They recently updated the decor with counches and lounges and its a full blown hookah louneg aswell as restaurant. They new Night manager (who is their cousin I think) has totally revamped this placed to another level. Great mood music, amazing ambiance, and the traditional amazing homemade food still is there! Never regret going there.

This is definitely the best baklava i've tried! The rest of their food is awesome as well. Skip the lines at FIU and have lunch here.... definitely worth it :)

I would first like to say that these two brothers are wonderful individuals you are a delight to be around. You won't regret coming in!Sometimes I can't resist to stop by and get a pistachio baklava to go!The good is amazing. As we say in Spanish "no cae pesado" (it's not heavy). It's the type of plate you can order twice and still want more. Don't get me wrong, their serving are generous!I can not find one negative thing to say. I always get the chicken kabab platter and lentil soup :)

Best food in Westchester, I say. Good value, good people; owned and operated by two extremely hospitable brothers, this oasis is really unbeatable in the area.

I far prefer their food to the commonly lauded Daily Bread market.

True story: I once asked them if they sold the rubber gasket part that seals a vase to the hookah. They said no but then went into the back room, took it off their own hookah and gave me theirs for free.

Support good people and good food.

Ok, so I tried their baklava today, and well, just as I expected, it was great. The small treat had was quite tasty with its flaky crust, sweet, but not too sweet center and the nice crunch from the walnuts. Hey, take my word for it and go here.

I haven't tried their Baklava yet, but I will when I go next time. Regardless though, this gem across FIU is GREAT! The food is well prepared and taste great. You'll leave with a happy stomach. The falafel sandwich is yummy, as is their hummus, and chicken sandwich. The lentil soup is delicious (they put curry in it which not only smells good, it makes it taste great!), and their kibbeh is delicious. If you're a FIU student and want some lunch, forget the subway next door and head on over to this place. There is never a line and although you'll spend more money than you would at subway, it will be money well spent. Also, in case you were wondering, the middle eastern grill, Shawarma in Kendall is not owned by these guys, although you could be easily fooled. No, the shawarma guy used to work at almazar and then up and left opened up shawarma. I guess he was "inspired" ....though I would call it something else.
