Disappointing for the price – I really wanted to like this restaurant. I love Mediterrannean food, and I have wanted the time to stop and try this place for a long time. I have been driving past, and never have the time to stop. Finally, today, I made the time. Walking in, the place was almost empty, but that works for me.
As I walked down the line of the buffet, there were several items that I expected to be in much better shape (the gyro meat, the kebabs, pita). Some of the food had also obviously been sitting there for a long time.
I grabbed a decent mix of items, and packed it into the to-go box. Most of it was cold food anyway. I am still wondering why the buffet had some italian food on the line, but I let that go. I decided not to bother with the beef kebab as it was hard as a rock when I picked it up. The gyro meat had gone crispy because it had been sitting so long in the grease. There were a number of other items that I ignored just because they did not look very appetizing.
I was hungry enough to eat in my car, so I put the to-go box in the seat next to me. Most of the items I grabbed were fairly easy to eat one handed.
The dolmas were the most disappointing that I have ever eaten. They were sloppily made, and fell apart when picked up. The flavor was not great either, and I love dolmas. The tabbouleh was wonderful, and so was the hommus. The babaganoush was mediocre. I got the spinach, which was bland and tasteless. The chicken kebab had an interesting flavor, but was in desperate need of seasoning. I was disappointed in the falafel, but it was not bad. It just needed seasoning.
All in all, I think the food here needs some seasoning, and a little less time on the line. For a buffet price of $13.00, I vastly over payed. I got a lot of food to choose from, and only ate about half of it. Sadly, I probably won't go back here again.
