It was March 19th, 2012 when we went to dinner at this little resturant. My brother who has been here many times, called ahead and reserved a table because he had invited quite a few friends to join us. When we showed up at the restaurant I was surprised that we were the only ones there. It was about 6:30, so I assumed that the dinner rush would be full on.
Okay so I really failed here. I didn't get pictures of the food. I didn't know that I was going to do a review until after we were done eating. So I found this pic taken from one of their reviews online. I had these potatoes Harra and they were good, but kinda spicy. I will try and mention as many of the foods that they had there.Falafels- I didn't like
Lentil Soup - fabulous
Lamb kabobs - didn't like
Chicken Kabobs - wonderful
curry rice - very good, not a strong curry just light
Tabouli - didn't like
There weremany other things that I was too nervous to try, like Baba ganoush, hummus, stuffed grape leaves, and many other things. I think that what I liked most about the restaurant, was the friendly atmosphere. For a mother of a toddler, any restaurant can become a miserable place. Toddlers do not like to sit still for dinner and so keeping them still and quiet can be a hearty task. When we first arrived at the restaurant, I was already seeing that Joslyn was not going to cooperate in the sitting still. She was running around the small room and pulling down the balloons. The restaurant owner, seeing how freustrated I was getting came up to me and said that it was okay. There was nothing she could get into and that her daughter SuSu would play with her if I wanted. I was reluctant but agreed. SuSu was a delight! Helping her mom by picking up the trash and playing with Joslyn and the other little boy that was in our party. Since we were the only party there I was able to relax and let her play. Nadi was blowing up more ballons for the kiddos to play with and occassionally we would all jump when one of them popped. But I was very happy with the relaxed atmosphere and the wonderful service! I give this place 2 thumbs up!
So if you are every in Charlotte, NC and want some Mediterranean food, definitely head to this restaurant!
