Mediterranean Cuisine

The interior of the building is classy with flowing fabric hanging between the booths, which made it seem something significantly different from the Pizza Hut it used to be years ago.
The Middle Eastern theme is about the same as in the previous restaurant, Aladdin Palace, but the food is better. The restaurant also has a few Italian dishes for those people who don't like Arabic food. Those who haven't stopped by this location for awhile are in for a good surprise.
There are the usual fare of vegan middle eastern dishes, but the chef will work with your vegan requests. A nice selection of vegan soups that change daily.

This is a simple, good vegetarian- and vegan-friendly restaurant. The one waitress was friendly and helpful. Our party of three had the buffet. The lentil soup, hummos, baba ghanouj, rice pudding, falafel and garlic sauce were all tasty. This restaurant uses the pita-like-a-tortilla style of pita bread, which isn't my favorite but was still OK.
If you need a restaurant to be squeaky-clean, this isn't the place for you. But, if you want good, reasonably-priced food, this restaurant is worth a visit.
I'm not sure of the restaurant's current name. All I saw on the outside was "Lebanese-American" and was too busy enjoying the food to figure out the name.

Excellent soups, lentil was yummy with a bit of a kick, split chickpea was also exceptional. Unfortunately neither are staples on the menu. The greek pasta was quite flavorful & the staff was accomodating with my vegan requests.
