    For something more Mediterranean, this is a must on your list. The smiling staff will be attentive and kind to you, and they can recommend the top dishes, but to be honest, the whole menu is great! The family who owns this restaurant serves up a delicious fusion of Moroccan, Greek, Bulgarian, and Turkish cuisine, definitely something new to try for dinner!
