Terrific plates on the lunch menu, and good deals. Entrees are mostly chicken- or lamb-based, and are offered as curries, or over couscous or chalow (white rice seasoned with cardamom). There's also a nice selection of vegetarian dishes: fasuliya (green beans cooked with onions and ans split peas), bamya (okra with garlic in tandoori masala) and lubya (red beans with tomatoes, cumin, and coriander). Up a flight of stairs; handicap accessibility is still in process.
