I had lunch here today. While it was a little pricey for a casual lunch, the portions were ample and the food tasty. My falafel sandwich was a ludicrous $7.99 (OK, I'm used to middle eastern, or at least NY, prices), but huge. My husband got the Schwarma Platter ($8.99)which had some very acceptable and toasty lamb tidbits, fresh tomato/parsley/onion turkish salad, and rice. Again, pricey, but it is a nicely decorated sitdown kinda place, and most falafel/schwarma is not eaten in such luxe decor.

Warm and soft pita bread is accompanied by garlicky olive oil, for a nice opener. We ate it before it had a chance to cool down.

The salads we saw on other folks tables looked huge and fresh. I would try one on a future visit. Not cheap, though. Most were $9-10.

Parking is tight, which can be a turn off, but given how few decent lunch places there are in this area (unless you want deli or pizza, you're out of luck, I think), it's a good option.

If you have other area places I should consider, please do tell! I'm at a loss.
