- Food:I ordered a lamb shish kebob which was served on home-baked pita with lettuce, tomatoes, and peppers. The photo, if I may say so myself, makes it look amazing. In reality, there were only 4 medium chunks of overcooked lamb. It was dry and tough. But the redeeming quality in my mind was the vegetables — lightly cooked, they were fresh, crispy, and oh so good. There was a very thin yogurt sauce which too watery and dripped everywhere making a huge mess. The bread was really good, but towards the end, soggy.
- Service: It took them a couple of minutes to come out of the back kitchen, even though the door clearly shut. Once they did, they were polite.
- Atmosphere: There are about 6-8 tables and chairs and a bar with a few stools, but the restaurant is definitely small. The atmosphere is not one that will impress anyone and is a bit bleak. They also have a lot of pungent incense burning which was disappointing since to me, the best smell is that of food cooking in a kitchen.
- Attire: Casual
- Price: $
- Overall:I’d skip the lamb and instead, perhaps try to the chicken or the veggie kebob. They also offer an all-you-can-eat buffet for $8.49 or carry-out buffet for $4.95/lb. And they deliver (minimum order must be $15), but not at lunch (bummer)!
