Best Middle Eastern in Atlanta?

Any thoughts? I'm not from Atlanta, but Zaytoons in Brooklyn is my gold standard.

      Mezza in Oak Grove. Lebanese, very good.

        I'd have to second a Rumi's Kitchen vote, but there's also Byblos up in Roswell. Great fun!

          If she wants to come to Roswell, there is also Darvish, which I think is better than Byblos (which is also good).

            Nicola's on LaVista near Briarcliff is very good and very entertaining.

              I love Nicola's not only for the food (which is fairly good) but for the owner who pretends that every visitor is a long lost friend and makes you feel very much at home in his place. And he even dances.....

              My vote is for Mezza - really fantastic food (especially for vegetarians) and inexpensive.
