The new addition has garnered rave reviews thus far, with a five-star rating out of seven reviews on Yelp.

Carmen S., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Oct. 19, wrote, “No-frills, deliciously seasoned, moist roasted chicken. Did I say it is clean halal chicken? My friends, this is one of the best roasted chickens I've ever put in my mouth.”

And Noor E. wrote, "It's an awesome restaurant. The chicken was excellent and juicy and tasted great, specially with their garlic sauce. The falafel was exceptional."
