Disgusting – I went in there today, and I liked the looks of it - Greek restaurant. However before I plunk down $30 or $40 for a meal anywhere, I always test out the place by ordering a simple appetizer to go and see two things; 1) How I am treated 2) The quality of the food. I decided with this place, since they are Greek, I would order their 6 falafel balls for $4.50 to go. The place was empty at 3 in the afternoon, so the one person there, a woman in her 40's, shuffled to the back and made the falafel. After 10 minutes it was ready, and she said "$5". I replied the menu says $4.50. She said plus tax. I said plus tax would at most, be $4.90. She gave me a look of annoyance and said fine, $4.90 (like she's doing me a favor). I paid and walked out. Outside I opened up the container and was shocked. I was expecting some nice sized fluffy balls. What I saw looked like poodle droppings. Tiny little balls, and they were hard too. It really did look like poop also. A falafel ball should be the size of a ping pong ball. These were the size of macadamia nuts. The taste was just average. So, when I combine the attitude (this lady blatantly tried to steal from me), and the food (I've had falafel balls in New York, New Jersey, Florida, California, Egypt, Morocco, Israel, Turkey, Greece, and these were the smallest, most pathetic falafel balls I've ever seen), I would suggest staying far away from this place.
