“Kabobs are okay, not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

We went to Al La Kabob based on tripadvisor rating and convenience. To be honest, the food was just okay, not great. We gave it a second try due to convenience to the Marriot where we stayed. While the food is fresh, it lacks a little flavor. The sauces they offer for the kabobs have nice descriptions but lack any zip for flavor. I couldn't argue with my wife's questioning whether the chicken was really chicken; probably was. Given more time in the area, I doubt I would have returned a third time and would have probably stopped in Cimboccos more often; its in the same plazz.

The seating while outdoors is a few tables in a concrete wasteland under an umbrella.

MrsKebab, Manager at Al La Kebab, responded to this review, April 30, 2012
Dear TheQueue61,
I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience at Al La Kebab, even after visiting us twice.

Our chefs take great care to produce flavourful sauces consistently and we will ensure that frequent quality checks are done so that the flavour matches the description. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

The chicken we serve is leg and thigh meat marinated in a Mediterranean marinade and grilled on a vertical grill. We also have Chicken Tikka on the menu, which is chicken breast marinated in yogurt and Indian spices.

I can only commend my staff for giving you excellent service.

Our apologies for the surroundings, we have done the best we can with the space, by fencing the area and creating shade.

Sincerely,

Laura Silverman
Manager

“Poor Imitation of Middle Eastern Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

Hey, this is a late night hash house, so I won’t make too big a deal about “rating” it. But if you’ve ever had good middle eastern food, this place is a poor imitation. Case in point—tasteless mush pretending to be babaghanouge, tahini with literally no taste, maybe cardboard would best describe it, and an thing unrecognizable as humus. I know, from the reviews, that others enjoyed their kebobs, and we had heard they were famous for the fattoush (which they were out of the night we visited), so maybe they can do something right, but the essentials I mention above were truly wanting.
