They are basely made with garbanzo beans, tahini, garlic, and lemon.

Z Garden Meal Review

My favorite dish was easily the lemon shrimp as its grilled flavor enhances the Mediterranean experience. The amazing creamy lemon sauce was the cherry on top of this dish. 

The beef shawarma was on the average side in terms of comparison to other Mediterranean spots. Besides the shrimp, this place is made to be special with its homemade hummus and sauce choices.
