Last night was my third attempt at the Mediterranean Cuisine. The first occasion was about a year ago in which I had a mediocre lamb pocket, filling and affordable, but nothing to rave about. My second attempt, a couple of months ago, my dish came out cold. Although the waiter was eager to ""heat"" it up for me it didnt make up for the bland and microwaveable taste. Last night I had taken a friend who had never ""experienced"" the wonderful tastes of the meditteranean and was hoping for a better experience myself. We both ordered the mixed grill combo platters. He with the shrimp, lamb, and chicken. I with the lamb, beef, and kifta. The waiter described they are served as kabobs, as it specifies on the menu. When the dishes arrived mine consisted of two VERY small slithers of lamb (not cubes), as well as 2 tiny pieces of beef, and the kifta in which all was very OVERCOOKED to a crisp (in other words burnt). My dining partners dish was the same. It looked as though the cook had tried to hide the fact of ruinig the meat with smothering it with sauce and putting the onions and peppers on top. The shrimp kabob my partner ordered with his ""platter"" was merely 3 very tiny shrimp, with no flavor, served over yellow rice. The only things edible on both of our plates were the rice, hummus, and salad. Upon complaining to our waiter his english suddenly became very bad. Although he did apologize there was no compensation offered and we left disappointed, angry, and still hungry. I'll stay with Anatolia on White Bridge Rd and Sitar, both very good with an over accomodating waitstaff.
Pros: no pros
Cons: food and service
