Good middle-eastern standards like hummus, falafel, schwarma, and kefta along with a few more interesting dishes like hummus with chopped lamb, fried pan, and the excellent chicken mosakhan. The portions are generous; I'm a big eater and with an entree (including soup/salad, pita, vegetables, and rice or potatoes) usually leaves me with leftovers. A cup of their tasty lentil soup and an order of falafel makes a good $5 light meal. Also, they fresh squeeze their juice and prepare middle-eastern coffee (though the coffee varies in quality), making a drink a worthy addition to a meal. The atmosphere is very relaxed, though with only one server, waits for food can be a little long, especially on weekend nights when University of Chicago students and faculty join the usual crowd of locals.

The best hummus I've ever tasted (and I've tasted quite a lot.) Great value, too; I highly recommend the Nile.
