I was using a discount coupon and did takeout: ordered online and the food was ready exactly when it was supposed to be. I ordered the Moussaka and it was mediocre (no standout in terms of flavoring). The accompanying rice was cooked well. Accompany pita was average at best. Compared to a visit to the restaurant about 8 years ago, I thought it had gone downhill. Had I been paying full price, I would have thought this was very expensive for what you got. Also, I would never choose to eat at the restaurant because of the pervasive hookah (smoke) smell. There are better Mid-eastern/Lebanese choices in Arlington, including Lebanese Taverna (better food at slightly cheaper prices), and Fettoush (about 1/2 mile east of Layalina -- no atmosphere but better food and definitely cheaper price).
