I visit Birmingham a couple times a year and am determined to find new places that aren't the big chains that dominate the Birmingham main thoroughfares. I was very happy to find this hole in the wall Mediterranean restaurant near The Summit. First, the service was excellent, and while we were there early so it wasn't crowded, we never lacked for a filled glass or anything else we needed. We felt welcomed, not just another table passing through. I am no expert at Med. food, but I know that I enjoyed it. We started with hummus and pita bread, and it tasted fresh, not something you'd get out of a case at the grocery store. For our main dishes, I got the combination of a vegetable kebab and kafta (Greek meatballs) kebab. It was served in a good sized pyrex dish, required because the amount of food was amazing. Sides were wild rice, tabuleh, and a small portion of fruit. The grilled vegetable kebab was grilled perfectly and the vegetables were fresh and tasty. I particularly enjoyed the tabuleh. It was covered with mozzerella cheese, as was the kafta, which was certainly the highlight. My wife was not very hungry and got the Greek salad, which she thought was a bit boring. Probably she just doesn't like Greek salads in general. It wasn't inspiring either way, but had fresh lettuce and feta. We sat outside because of the good weather, and while nice, it is situated on a busy road, so expectations should be kept low in terms of romance. It was nice, and they have done a good job with the porch. I appreciate places like this in Birmingham, and would go back in a heartbeat. For something different, this is definitely worth taking a chance. Last point to be made: this place is also a great value.
