    The "new" owner overheard us talking with the bar keep and made it a point to stop by several times. We felt like family. Very interesting as we've been to quite a few of the same places in Greece and Italy. I tried the Lamb Kabob on a bed of rice and hummus and a garlic sauce. My wife had the Greek Salad with grilled lamb added which surprised me as she doesn't eat lamb. Using a piece of the pita and a dab of the garlic sauce complimented the lamb very well. The lamb was cooked perfect and the flavor rivaled any lamb I've eaten.

     My friends and I were here for Tegg. training, we went to crystals for dinner 2 nights. Had the lamb sandwich and hung out until 1030.  drank and had a wonderful night with crystal and her wonderful staff.  good food, good people, and a goods  time. crystal is a wanderful cook, and a fantastic host.  Our time there was like spending time with family.  Will come back any time I'm in piitsburgh, may make a trip back just for the food and people.

    Average at best it is definatly a dive. Crystal and the rest of the staff are nice but that does not makeup for average food. The lamb was tough and over spiced and the rice was underwhelming. The portions are a lot small than I saw on 3D. Glad I came I will not come back.

    My first comment was "are you sure this is the place we saw on tv?" I'm sorry but, ABSOLUTELY THE WORST LEBANESE FOOD I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED! This place gives lebanese food a bad rep. If it's not overly seasoned its extremely bland and not properly cooked. Just bad culinary skills overall. Being lebanese myself, I was excited to visit a lebanese spot that made it on one of my favorite food network shows and I must say I was strongly disappointed. The episode on tv is very deceiving. The show makes the place look well lit and cozy, a surprising contrast to what I walked into which was a dark and dirty hole in the wall. On a positive note, the service was friendly.
