Been twice now to this new restaurant (plus was given a free pizza sample on opening day this summer) and think it is a significant addition to an already good stretch of Mission. Not sure exactly if this is supposed to be a faithful representation of a particular region...it's more bringing modern sensibilities/experimentation and the California fixation on fresh ingredients to Middle Eastern classics, with surprisingly good results. All the entrees and wraps come with sides.
So far I've tried:
Pine nut pulled chicken wrap - very good, extra points for using juicy dark meat
Lamb/beef shish kabob with hummus/saffron rice - nice and gamy, a little dry (may have been cooked beforehand) but still good
Radish/chickpea salad, really interesting, good peppery bite from the radishes in a hummus-like dip with a few whole chickpeas on top
Tomato-cucumber salad, not that distinguished but fine
Lemon/cucumber yogurt dip: this is excellent, tangy and refreshing with a generous amount of olive oil. Maybe the best thing I've tried so far.
Overall, I think this place nicely complements the earthier food offered by Old Jerusalem and Good Frikin' Chicken up the street.
