“This place is soooo terrible. Are the owners spamming their reviews?”
I've lived in bham for five years now, and I saw this place hundreds of times before I tried it. One day I craved a gyro, and Google recommended five columns. I called the restaurant and ordered a gyro and hummus appetizer.
I'm used to a gyro costing less than $9, and pita/hummus $6 at the most. I was prepared to spent $18 with a tip for the server. All I can say is WOW. My order cost $26.57 with NO TIP!!!! And it was take out! The price was so high, it inspired me to write an online review to warn everyone.
I couldn't believe it, I got about 8 pieces of pita and a tiny container of hummus. Instead of generously filling up the bottom of the gyro with meat, there were three spongy strips lining the bottom of the (semi-soggy) pita. The sauce was pathetically under seasoned, and my gyro was doused in tomatoes even though I asked for no tomatoes in my order.
Also, when I arrived to pick up my order, I waited awkwardly for about 5 minutes until a women who didn't speak English addressed me. After a lot of gesturing, she understood I was there for take out. I tried smiling at other servers to get their attention or prompt them to ask me how I was doing but they blatantly ignored me.
Don't go here unless you like being ripped off and under appreciated. The best thing about this place is the ficus living in the middle of the restaurant. Otherwise the whole place is seriously lifeless.
My advice to the owners: improve customer service among staff, lower price point, and make your restaurant WAY more inviting to customer. I'd give this place a 1 out of 10, because at least I had something to eat (for almost 1/2 of my weeks food budget). Pathetic.
