Restaurant details
Reviewed January 28, 2012

We enjoy Mediterranean/Middle Eastern cuisine and this Cleopatra's location is near the movie theater we go to most often, making it handy. It's menu, like the that of the other Cleopatra's location, offers a lot of choice. One may select an item, say a falafel, as a sandwich or as a full meal with all the trimmings, further broadening the choices available. Trimmings include tahini formed into a well holding a dollop of olive oil and tabouli salad, with a pungent olive or two and flat bread to mop it all up. One places an order at the counter, chooses a table, and the food is brought out fairly soon thereafter. Presentation is quite good. Food quality as quite high -- read flavorful -- and the serving size will satisfy the diner. They have a good harissa that is moderately hot by my standards and very flavorful. The restaurant interior is generic, any sort of restaurant could occupy the space, and there are some Egyptian prints on the wall, but they will not transport you to the Middle East. We come here for the food, so ambiance really doesn't matter to us. Pretty good wine is poured here and beer is available.
