too few reviews
By pleasantbay149 on 3/31/2013
when i see such a divergence of opinion I think two things: people who want to pull a place down and people who want to pull it up These sites attempt to give eaters opinions but I guess more food reviewers need to be out there because you can pull down the ratings here with three ones or pull it way up as well "what power" Guess the best way to eat your way through ny life is by trial and error, word of mouth and look in the window, at the menu and the patrons. I'm hungry
PRICEY AND BELOW AVERAGE
By LeilaB on 3/31/2013
First of all let me tell you that I had plenty of Lebanese food, good food. This place didn't do it for me. I took my husband there so he could try Lebanese Food. I wish i hadn't done that. The place was way too small to be called a restaurant, a take out place maybe. The food was not good and overly priced for no good reason. The tables were a joke when it came to size. literately, each table was no more than 18 inches wide. We ordered an appetizer and half way through it, the waiter came out with the main dish. There was no place to put the plates so we had to get rid of the appetizer so the food can fit on the tiny table. That says so much about service. Normally even at an average restaurant, the waiter would wait for you to finish your appetizer before they dump on you the main course. And the worst of my experience was the waiter who reeked with cigarette smell. Really? What happened to a non smoking restaurant?
Excellent Tasty Food
By MichaelSchenker on 3/28/2013
Been to this place when ever Im in the Foresthills area. The Falafel is fresh and tasty as is the rest of the menu. I agree with the review below the Fattoush is a great,a 'salad' of middle eastern flair. It appears to be a family run resturant and the service has always been good (Ive been there about 15-20 times) I have no idea how the guy who left his place a poor review. Either he NO tastebuds what so ever or is just works for some nearby resturant and is jealous of the quality of food Wafas has.Why would you rate the decor a '3'? Its basic CLEAN resturant,with chairs windows..pictures on the wall,I guess some people are expecting gold trimed tables and Velvet Chairs? Expensive? No. You can eat there for well under $30 for two people and not go home hungry.
Love this place!

My boyfriend and I have gone to Wafa's several times and have ordered in several more times and we have never been disappointed. The food is fresh and flavorful and the Fattoush for two with a falafel sandwich for each of us is more then enough and the bill doesn't top $25. The staff has always been friendly and allowed us to linger as long as we wanted to without feeling rushed in any way.
Expected much better service

If clowns had a cuisine, this would be it. Menu was VERY short and limited and we ended up paying much much more than we expected for food that was mediocre at best. Salad was awful. Overall the service makes you feel like you want to leave the place as soon as you can. No wonder that there were only about 4 people in the restaurant. If you want to have a nice evening out - AVOID this restaurant!
