Start with the free bread and olive oil and work your way to a Meze sampler, where you can choose your favorites (humus, falafil, ezme and mushrooms were our selections....) The stuffed cabbage is great, and reasonably priced (about $10.) This is a nice change of pace from the millions of pubs in the neighborhood.

I have never had a bad meal here. The food is always fresh, plentiful and delicious. Spinach a la Penne is a particular favorite. The waiters are very attentive and efficient and are always fun to chat with. I highly recommend this

Perfect atmosphere, authentic Mediterranean food at a very reasonable price. Great for dates, at least for me =) And the chef is the co-owner and he's TURKISH. These are his recipes. It's the real deal. Enjoy!

Maybe I am mistaken expecting this restaurant to serve turkish food, but this place is anything but true Turkish food. Food had no traditional spices. Service was good though. Reasonable priced but ABSOLUTELY no flavor!!!

Wonderful place with super delicious and healthy food. All my friends (meat-eaters and veggies/vegans) love it the same.\r
It is just the welcoming atmosphere, the nice decor, the helpful staff and the delicious dishes and yummy desserts.

A place to get real wholesome food at a nice price. The vegan options are good and the service is polite and friendly. I always feel relaxed in this place and not rushed to finish my food and get out. A must place for all vegans.

Pros: fantastic food, friendly staff, peaceful environment, the best deserts

This is a fantastic place! Fun, funky and romantic. Try to sit and the tables against the wall with the pillows instead of chairs. The food is wonderful and cheap! I would recommend Cousin's to anyone in Chicago.

Cousin's offers affordable ($7-10 average entree) Middle Eastern cuisine with an emphasis on Turkish and Lebanese dishes. The free bread and crisps basket that comes with the meal is a meal in itself - very warm, fresh, and mouthwatering when dipped in olive oil. The restaurant serves ample portions and a wide variety of vegetarian dishes. The restaurant also offers takeout and deliveries. My favorite dish is the sampler plate filled with tons of hummus, olive oil, dolmates, falafel, and Lebanese bulgur wheat cucumber salad.

The decor is a combination of Western white tablecloth and candles for formal dining. However, the other part of the dining room contains pillows, Persian carpets for sit-on-the-floor coziness.

On some nights, belly dancing and even dance classes in salsa and ballroom dance are offered.

If you're tired of the pizza and pub grub fare usually offered in Lakeview and Lincoln Park, check out this place for something a little more exotic

Always get the bottle of wine, never the glass. The wine is excellent and much cheaper. You cannot get decaf tea or coffee which is disappointing but the food is excellent and well worth the trip. If you have an exercise program in place,

Abundance of healthy fare. Average. Baba Ghanouj is tasty. Might need to go out to eat soon after.
