What a make-over! This place is palatial! We loved the sampler for 2 and we wished that and the fatoush salad were all we had ordered because all three of our pita sandwiches were not very good (gyro, falafel, shish tawook). They were cold, the bread was stale, and they had tons of pickles and raw turnips. But go. Just... More

I had great expectation for such here. Frankly after lunch yesterday, very disappointing.Tried many samplings from the buffet. Salads were the high point, meats the low point. Everything was between luke warm and cool, they need to turn up the steamer tables. Meats were thick cut and cool, not browned and mostly just missing. The kababs again, cold. On thing... More

Excellent Mediterranean Buffet. Everything is nicely prepared. The new building is well done too, and complements the restaurant.

The best things to get here are the kabobs - especially the beef. The falafel is also really good and the hummus is worth the trip. The real great thing about Afrah is the lunch buffet. Reasonably priced and a good assortment of food. I would probably avoid the shawarma - it is a bit dry. To end your meal... More

Loved Afrah at the old location, but the food has really gone downhill with the expansion. Gristly shawarma that tasted like someone dumped a cinnamon shaker on it. No thanks. I want to love this place, but the food quality just isn't what it used to be.

It is a large buffet with a lot of choices. It is a good restaurant for large groups with outdoor seating. Convenient for nice weather days.

We went for lunch and used a buy one get 50% off coupon. With that, we felt it was worth the money. The food seemed fresh and they replenished the buffet quickly. The flavors were good, but some of the chicken was dry. Great spinach and veggies. Bread was excellent. We'll return if we have another coupon.

My wife, my son, and I had the lunch buffet for $12.99 on 6/15/2016. The foods were average. I liked beef and lamb kabob. The restaurant is nice. The service was good. The parking lot is large.

This was my first visit and it was surprisingly good. If you are not sure if you like Mediterranean food and want to try it, I recommend getting the buffet. The buffet had a wide variety of salads, different vegetables and meats. The hummus is delicious and they have great pastries.
