Ate there last weekend. Turkish food. Everything was good.
We wanted to sample a variety of things, so we ordered the meze plate and the combo platter. The portions are generous, we had enough food to feed 5 adults.
From the meze plate:
Hummus -- delicate, not too sour, mild tahini taste, creamy, really liked this one
Baba ghanoush -- delicate, mostly smokey flavor, good
Dolmeh -- mild, not too sour, olive oil taste, I usually do not like these but actually ate one, they are the best I've tried, still don't like them in general
Tzatziki -- delicate but good
Feta and kalamata olives -- salty and typical
Lamb and beef shawarma: actual chunks of beef and lamb, mild flavor, very good
Lamb kebab: juicy, tender, mild flavor, excellent, highly recommend
Chicke Kebab: juicy, tender, mild flavor, excellent, highly recommend
Chicken shawarma: chuncks of chicken, mild flavor, not as good as chicken kebab
Falafel: the best I've ever had, they put sesame seeds in it, good texture and flavor. Hubby generally will not eat falafel but he ate 2 or 3 of them and said they were good.
The chef has a delicate touch when it comes to spices, but they are well balanced and nothing is over powering. You can probably tell that I do not like things that are too sour -- too often there is just too much lemon juice and/or garlic in these type of dishes and it tends to overpower all other flavors.
Will be going back there again soon.
