The pièce de résistance at Dervish are their grilled items. The table top grill is filled with burning coal and skewers of different kinds of chicken, shrimp and beef kababs are kept warm on it.

Prime cuts like sirloin and ribeye steaks are served at the table.

Service was exceptionally good. Our gracious hostess hostess Layla even informed us that we can login to our Yelp account to get a discount code.


The restaurant is divided into different sections for à la carte dining and buffet. Seating is very comfortable. Overall, the ambiance is good for formal occasions as well as casual dining.

The variety of food along with the service and ambiance totally justified the $24.99 per person price tag (1/2 off for kids). All of us, including my daughters and 2 year old son enjoyed the experience. The only thing that we missed was some pita bread/pita chips to go with the hummus and muhammara.

We will definitely be returning to Dervish Table Top Grill, Insha’Allah (if God wills).
