Although I'm giving this place a '2', I will say that some of the other members of my family enjoyed their meals more than I enjoyed mine. I ordered a stew that was advertised to be spiced beef, accompanied by beans and vegetables. What I got was a small bowl of green stuff, which (I believe) was cooked spinach with... More

The lamb kabobs were delicious, but the rice was out of this world. We had the dill rice and the lentil rice and both were just excellent. You would never guess that a wonderful restaurant was located in a little strip mall looking place on Transit. Stop in and you will be surprised. To go options are also available.

The baba goanush is so good!! Make sure they sprinkle a bit of olive oil on top. The food is all made fresh. I really enjoy their chicken, walnut, pomegranate stew over their brown rice with lentals ~ yum! A delightful experience.

We started with the baba ghanoush which came with pita and was excellent. It didn't have enough pita to eat all the baba ghanoush but when we... More

Our waiter didn't speak English, didn't ask if we wanted anything to drink, never brought the check, and brought us silverware 5 minutes after our food arrived. We ordered hummus for $6 to share and he asked us if we wanted pita for 3 (we had 3 adults), we said yes. It turns out an order of pita is about... More

So, the Pomegranate has tasty food, but very bad and strange service. I went regularly for a while and got used to the service-related hiccups here and there. First they wouldn't take a coupon from the Entertainment Book even though the coupon said it was for anything. This sort of thing happens regularly there. Finally I attempt to use the... More

Really good food and most importantly, healthy! Several vegetarian, vegan and gluten free choices as well. They've also opened up at the Galleria Mall food court recently.
