“Great food, great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2009

This is my favorite Middle Eastern restaurant in the Seattle area, for both the quality and value of its fare. It operates as a fast food restaurant; i.e., you order at the counter from a big menu on the wall and the food is brought to your table, or you can order takeout. Catering is also available.

Every meal I've had at this restaurant has been excellent; the ingredients are always fresh and the various dishes are very tasty. Personal favorites include lamb shawarma, lamb kabob, spanakopita, gyros, kafta kabob, and chicken kabob. As sides, tabouli (parsley salad) and zahra (deep-fried cauliflower) are outstanding. The hummus and baba ganouj are also excellent. The baklava is good but a bit dry.

The restaurant is tidy and clean but very small, not really suitable for large groups. Service is fast and efficient. Takeouts are ready 10 minutes after the order is called in. Owner Nick is friendly.

Finally, note that not too long ago, when the ownership changed, the name of this restaurant also changed to simply "Mediterranean Express."
