Review ....Rose's Place---fairlawn ,nj

Had dinner there for first time last night after several previous lunches (although none recently). The place is tricky to find off broadway/rte 4 in fairlawn (even after being there before!) and we managed to miss the parking lot and ended up on a residential street and walked half a block. in any case, the place is in need of some new decor but was packed with new tables being put up in front of a drafty door in the midst of a busy night. The owner was pleasant as was the rest of the staff but service was sloooow taking 15 minutes to order and a good twenty minutes between courses. All that said (and i do remember previous visits on the slow side as well) the place is well priced for the value of the food. Among the highlights....tabouleh salad is unsurpassed, great hummus, delicious borak (phyllo cigars filled wil spinach & cheese), above average very thin pita (from paterson in a bag, although very good i would still much prefer if served warm). The shish tawook chicken platter was great with outstanding rice and beef kebob platter terrific as well. will certainly return although will try to go earlier and when not pressed for time.
