went there 9/25/10. Service ridiculous. Waitress forgot or didnt understand that we ordered a tabouli. Even tho she repeated "One Tabouli." The tabouli was some chopped parsley with a few grains of couscous, maybe. No flavorings no spices not really tabouli... ridiculously bad. The Souvlakis were also tasteless. the lamb was OK, but not particularly flavorful, the pita was too thin and fell apart too easily, and all that was in there was chopped lettuce - - no onions, 1 tiny piece of tomato - no flavor. you pour on your own sauce. The yogurt sauce was surprisingly unflavorful also. I cant imagine why anyone would bother going here. For half the money there is a souvlaki cart in the street about 60 feet up the block - go there instead.

Some Hints:

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
