A wide selection of Middle Eastern delicacies are prepared and served in this bright, friendly Berkeley hangout. Lush eggplant salad, smoky baba ghanoush, crisp-from-the-oven feta-spinach borek, succulent shish kebab and a most-comforting moussaka are among the menu's highlights; some of the other dishes (dry falafel, leaden Turkish ravioli, perfunctory rice pudding) lack pizzazz. Get the creamy-dreamy baklava and a demitasse of high-octane Turkish coffee for dessert.
