“Good change of pace for lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

I"m relatively new to the area form south florida where there are quite a few very good mediterranean restaurants and was happy to see a mediterranean restaurant within a couple of minutes from our new home and in the publix shopping center. We've been to this restaurant twice. The portions are generous and the food and prices are good. The tab each time was about 20$ total for the two of us. I liked the felafel wrap i had each time. My husband had a type of greek salad and it was good except the tomatoes were a bit mushy for our taste. The second time my husband had the beef schwarma and was very happy with that. The tabouli salad was very good and very fresh. The decor kind of reminded me of a Subway or Quiznos and thats not bad just be aware that its that type of decor. They have a bit of outdoor seating so if you prefer that its available.

“The only Falafel/Shawarma cafe to visit in Orlando”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

It is unfortunate that certain other reviewers had a bad experience, but all I can speak is for my experience. And, it has been Very Good. Granted - the Falafel/Shawarma sandwiches are not close to the stuff you get in Detroit, or better yet - Middle East (served in a samoon). But, for Orlando - it is the best place. I generally carry out & have always enjoyed the quality of their food. They have a more upscale fine-dining option @ Lake Buena Vista (Close to the Disney entrance from Kissimmee). I have tried that too, but prefer the cafe at metro west.

Give it a try - who knows, you might like it as well.

“Disappointing Food Quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

I love Middle Eastern food, but this was not a good representation. I stopped for take-out after visiting the newly-opened pet store nearby. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The small shop was clean and attractively decorated. I'm unlikely to return even though I'll be visiting my favorite pet store again. I paid extra for the Chicken/Beef Shawarma Platter, but when I opened the box at home, only chicken was included. Just as well, since the meat was extremely dry and without much flavor. The tabouli was not fresh and the ample serving of freshly prepared bread did not add to the meal. It was like a very large pita that didn't rise. Maybe it's traditional, but it was tough and again without flavor. The creamy baba ganoush was overwhelmed by a smoke flavor. One redeeming feature was the hummus, which was excellent. There was an officious manager-type presiding over the operation, but obviously quality control was not his concern.

“My favorite restaurant in Orlando!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

If you like authentic Lebanese food, this is the place! It is located in a shopping center near Publix, has a few table inside and offers outdoor seating as well. The quality of the food is wonderful. Each order is made right in front of you. Our favorite is a Chicken Shawarama sandwich, made on pita bread than placed on a panini type grill. They add all kinds of toppings which only make the sandwich that more flavorful. We love the garlic sauce, and always order additional. They only use fresh, healthful ingredients that is much better for you than typical fast food. We were impressed with the Ingredients Glossary on the wall, explaining what the different ingredients do for your body. Not only does the food taste wonderful; it is good for you too!
