Foursquare Tips

  • The Arabic tea is a must have on cold days!
  • The hours really only allow for a lunch or early dinner, but the hummus plate and falafel are well worth stopping in.
  • Try the Akin's Plate (Lamb & Beef) - Favorite go-to #lunch place along State St.
  • Best lunch in town, comfort food that leaves you feeling amazing, great atmosphere and awesome staff.
  • My staple is the lamb Akin's plate. It's affordable and delicious! Goes well with a warm cup of Arabic tea.
  • Best lunch on state street and very affordable. Everything is excellent, and cash only set up keeps the cost low. Try the Lamb Akin's Plate!
  • Everything is good. Get Arabic tea and a plate of hummus with pita.
  • Amazing falafel plate. Loved the hummus and tea!
  • Eventhough they don't take phone orders, trust me, it is totally unnecessary. These guys are faster than any fast food place... I'm talking seconds! And the food is perfection at moderate prices.
  • Beef and lamb shawarma (Akins' plate) is bursting with flavor! Comes with a side of rice and pita. The sauce is amazing! Must have.
  • Don't miss this one. Great location, great food
  • Not the best Mediterranean food I've ever had, but its my favorite in the downtown area. Friendly service, clean location, satisfying food everytime. They remember regulars, which is great!
  • A cozy spot with delicious Mediterranean food. Try to falafel plate. Cash only.

  • Love the vegetarian couscous or the lamb Atkins plate! Warm or iced Arabic tea depending on the season! Such good food for such a good price, a Madison favorite.
