I guess you can say this is a hole-in-the-wall, but that would be grossly understating the place. You can easily drive right by Maroosh if you didn't know it was there. However, the inside is decorated in an almost overly ornate fashion. There's no mistaking that this is meant to be a fine dining establishment, and that is what it is.
The service was attentive without being overbearing. The owner came by to introduce himself and make sure that everything was up to snuff.
Each table receives pitas, olives and pepperoncinis to snack shortly after being seated. The pitas were dry, but the pepperoncinis were lightly pickled and were a nice snack.
We ordered a gyro platter and a curried grouper as the entrees. The gyro platter was tasty, but nothing special. The curried grouper was cooked perfectly. It came off in little flakes and a knife really wasn't needed. The curry sauce that accompanied was tasty. It had a gentle warmth, but it seemed to be missing a little spice that really would've brought that level of comfort that curries can do.
I would skip the desserts unless you like your sweets a little dry. We had the namora, which had a light sweet syrup over a dry cake. I think the intention is to let the syrup soak in and it'll create a moist dessert, but it didn't work. We also had a similar dessert that was stuffed with a sweet cheese (they described it as ricotta-like). While this dessert was better than the namora, it still had a light dryness to it that kept us from appreciating it's flavors.
