I know there’s a million different Middle Eastern/Mediterranean restaurants in Paterson, but this one is ACTUALLY pretty good. It’s a bit nicer/more modern than most of the others and the manager (might even be the owner) is super nice.
The menu has a lot of the typical grilled platters, but they have a lot of other “bistro” style options, including gourmet type pizzas, a number of seafood options, and some great sandwiches. The rib eye sliced steak sandwich is very good – certainly a lot better than another other halal place I’ve tried one at and they ACTUALLY ask you how you like your meat cooked. 🙂 It’s nice to not have to beg someone at an arab place not to over-cook your meat. The burger was not bad. I’ve had better, but for a halal place, it’s decent, and their home fries are yummy.
Anyway I hope they keep it up. Some places have a habit of taking a nose dive in quality after they’ve been in business for a first few months (Remember King Yen – the halal chinese place? Yeah, they are out of business now. They went from fantastic to awful really fast).
Anyway, it’s located at 1068 (if I remember correctly) Main St, in Paterson. Give it a shot.
Happy Dining 🙂
