Mediterranean cuisine often infuses Greek, Italian, Middle Eastern and some African styles, dishes and spices. The restaurant's menu features mostly Middle Eastern influences, and includes shawarma, gyros, kebabs, falafel and much more.

“It should be easy for any family to go out after work and find healthy, quality food,” Ahmed Mohamed told Patch on opening day in 2012.
