Slightly above-average buffet 5/30/2007

Finally stopped in for a bite to eat after a coworker raved about the hummus with lamb and lamb entree. I did not have a chance to try either of those dishes as I decided to try the lunch buffet on my first visit. What the hummus lacked in flavor, it made up in its texture. The babaganoush/babaganouj was good, and so were the dolmades/dolmeh (stuffed grape leaves). The lamb stew was very tasty, but I must warn you that it was very fatty-be prepared to do a lot of trimming, if you are so inclined (as I am!). I almost did not try the brisket since it looked dry and burnt; I'm glad to say it was quite good. I would have to say that my favorite dish in the buffet was something I could not find in their regular menu, but have deduced to be chole (googling dishes containing the following roasted veggies: eggplant, onions, tomatoes, and stewed chickpeas). \r \r Next review will be on the lamb entree! Pros: attentive service Cons: Dimly lit (even in the daytime!); limited buffet selection; meals not properly labeled more
