My husband and I came here with our five children and the food was great! Very good service and comfortable atmosphere. The baklava (dersert)was amazing! We would definitely come again. Everyone was very friendly. More...

Great experience. Fast service with a smile. Food was very tasty and AUTHENTIC! Fair prices. Bakalva was to die for. The owner is also there to cater to your needs when needed. You won't be disappointed with the quality of the food. Highly recommend. More...

Impressed by delicious food at descent price, especially for the area, and phenomenal service. I got iced sage tea with my meal on a whim, and it was the best thing ever! The servers kept refilling my glass - I've never seen so hydrated :) More...

I feel like this place is kind of a secret. It is so good!!! I love their sage tea hot or iced. In the winter, Manitou slows down and I have happy memories of spending a good amount of time just sipping tea in here and addressing my Christmas cards while watching the snow fall. The staff is so friendly. I love everything I've ordered, but when I'm having a sweet tooth, their baklava is unmatched. 5 stars from this happy local! More...

Great middle eastern food and the owners are very friendly. I highly recommend the Turkish coffee! Perfectly flavoured.

Always delicious. The falafel is crisp on the outside and soft n fluffy on the inside. Every time we've been here, the service has been faster than any other place I've been to. And the Will Rogers, definitely try that! More...

I've always enjoyed the service and friendly atmosphere. The drinks are good, smoothies and teas and lattes. Today, I ate lunch for first time, not just a drink while walking thru Manitou Springs. The chicken kabob was delicious. I'd suggest you try! More...

Food was great, all fresh home made, my daughter had a salad, huge portions, I had a vegetarian plated with homemade Humus, Tabbouleh, Baba-Gannoj, warm stuffed grape leafs (6 0f them!) plus a small salad, served with fresh warm pita points, tasty, delicious!
Fairly priced. Loved it!

Was my first time dining here. After waiting for service elsewhere I walked down the street to this restaurant where I was waiting on almost instantly.

My order came out fairly quick, within about 10 minutes. I had the Lamb with pita bread, salad, hummus and tzatziki. The lamb was cooked perfectly, was tender, and had excellent flavor. The portion size of lamb on my plate was good and I left satisfied but not overly full.

My only criticism was that the plates did not include any rice. Priced as they were about $10-12 on average I thought the fact rice was not included was odd since its a cheap filler item.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was much like a street deli. The menu options were decent, with many items to choose from, including coffee and tea flavors specific to middle eastern cuisine.

I finished my meal with a baklava, they had 2 kinds to choose from. The baklava was up there with some of the better ones I've had.

5 stars. Great service, nice and thoughtful servers, amazing food! Definitely going again! Everything was tasty! And I loved the sage black tea and I normally don't drink tea.

Ate here with my boyfriend, younger cousin, and nephew today! Was delicious like the other couple times I've went (with my boyfriend as well). Definitely became our regular place to go to eat if we are going to Manitou Springs! We all enjoyed our food with no disappointments or complaints! We love the Baklava too! The staff seems to always be nice and patient as well.
