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.

Ate late on a Saturday night, the inside was crazy loud, so we ended up outside on the patio, chairs/tables extremely uncomfortable, smokers all around us - gross. We ordered the appetizer sampler and it was pretty good, but it came out in three different stages all 10 minutes apart. By the time they asked if we wanted dinner, we... More

We have friends who had raved about Afrah's entrees so when we were given a chance to try some of Afrah's food at a catered event, (VIP meal at the Wildflower Fest) we did. And, wow! The food was so delicious and was served with smiles. The serving sizes were very generous. We will be eating on location very soon.
