We ordered the Sampler Platter for two, and our kids ordered hummus and chicken. The Sampler Platter was wonderful. The baba ghannooj had a great smoky flavor to it. The meat plate was beautiful and tasty. The fresh baked bread served as a delicious compliment to the entrees. There was a large quantity of food and we now have leftovers... More

My friends and I got a carryout from here 2 days ago. I really had a taste for good raw kibbe. What a disappointment. It was dry, too much cracked wheat, it tasted as though it was vegetarian. My friend asked if I wanted to take it home an I told her to throw it out. I will say the... More

8 years after taking over the LaShish chain, La Marsa is doing well, and the lamb chops is still the best

This used to be my favorite place for carryout for AGES but something has drastically changed over the past month. I place my orders online and I still have to wait 10-15 minutes once I arrive. One of the men that works the carryout counter is only interested in conversing with the young attractive women that come through the door.... More

I was surprised on how good the Falafel sandwich was. I gave it a 5-Star rating. The sandwich had just the right spices to bring our the flavor of the whole sandwich. I would recommend this to anyone.

Excellent food paired with exceptional hospitality. I ordered the shish tawook, shrimp kabob, grilled veggies, and a small Greek salad. All of it was excellent!!! If you are in the mood for Mediterranean I highly recommend La Marsa!

It had hummus, spinach pie, baba Ghanouj, Mjadra (replaced with Fattoosh) tabbouli, grape leaves and falafel with a side of veggies and 2 lentil soups and fresh or raw veggies, which the manager brought out when the waitress argued with me that the veggies listed on the menu meant...
