Love this type of food and thought they were decent but not as good as I would have expected. Would try it again. Danny Bell Monrovia.

The last time I was there was probably the last time I would be going there: I was served a plate of chicken that was flavored with Lemon Pledge furniture polish and made my mouth feel like it had been coated with wax, pita that was more like a type of shingle than a bread, hummus that was nothing more than pureed garbanzo beans; no spices & no olive oil, and tabbouleh that had annoyingly rock-hard bits of under-cooked cracked wheat that made me feel like I was eating sand. For dessert I had baklava that had been kept in the same compartment as stinky chopped onions and had absorbed the flavor of the onions. The only thing that tasted right was the Coke I had, but luckily they didn't make that.
