I've found it interesting that multiple reviews mentioned that they ate here on the way to the zoo - so did I! I'm not very familiar with the area, but is there no where else to eat around there? Anyway, we were sucked in by the happy hour sign advertising $3 chicken tenders, $1 margaritas, and $5 martinis. We were just looking for drinks and appetizers, so it seemed like a good option, especially since we were all on budgets.
You get what you pay for. The cheap drinks? You'll end up spending more than you normally would because you'll need three drinks for the effect of one. Chicken tenders? Eh. Not bad, it was just strange that a Mediterranean restaurant even offered them. The music seemed to be more Indian influenced, so the whole ambiance was just a little strange.
One of the members of my party ordered the calamari, and she reported they were pretty darn good. I ordered the Zattar toast, which was came out exactly as described on the menu, "Jordanian green thyme & sesame over toasted pita topped tomatos and basil." The pita was toasted to a thin crisp, and was really kind of like a super thin pizza, without the cheese. Pretty good, and nice snack before trekking around the zoo.
The service was friendly, and relatively quick, although for a Saturday evening, the place was pretty empty. They had some interesting things on the menu, so even though it wasn't the best, I would probably give it another try, but staying away from their mixed drinks.
