Mrs. Wineguy and I rolled into this Richmond District cafe for an early dinner last night. We tried a few of the appetizers: Bourek, Baba Ganouj and Falafel. The appetizers were a little disappointing. The Bourek seemed thin on the filling, the Baba Ganouj seemed under seasoned and the Falafel, while soft and delicious inside, were over-fried and really hard on the outside. Our main courses were much more to our liking. Mrs. Wineguy had the Kefta Kabob: it was very flavorful. I had the Lamb Kabob, which arrived at the requested medium rare. The lamb was nice and tender. Layaly also served some of the better french fries I've had in a while. We didn't care much for the wine list, but drank some Lebanese beer called Almaza. We would definitely go back to Layaly and try some other appetizers. In general our experience there was very positive.

Any other recent experiences at this location?
