Amsterdam Falafelshop
So this is a build-your-own sandwich / bowl kind of place: nice selection at the salad bar for toppings but I know it's not a thing for some diners.Falafel: under-flavored if you are an ethic foods seeker. I have it in a bowl for the toppings I added helped with the flavor but they are bland with a hint of black pepper.Shawarma: lamb was nicely cooked but the again kind of tame in the flavor department. I had this as a small sandwich: pita is on the thick side about the thickness of thin toast bread.Fries: well, they are fries. Nice mayo and curried ketchup dipping sauces.Overall it's ok: if you're going to be in the area already and all the other dining spots around are packed come here. Just don't make a special trip.

Zoes Kitchen
My first time at any of these Zoe Kitchens: very nice, bright, food is made to order after you order and pay at the counter, and in not too long a time it all shows up.I ordered the hummus trio as my starter: showed up with my entree. GGRRR!!! Nice trifecta of hummus flavors, kind of bland for my taste, but pleasant.The Beef Kabobs were decent: two hefty skewers, grilled veggies and course "mashed" potatoes. The beef had a lamb chewiness to them (fine if it was lamb, but not for beef), grilled veggies were nice, and the potatoes were tasty.Overall nice place.

Sahara Restaurant
This has become me & my husband favorite place to eat. The restaurant is very simple and didn't impress us much when we walked in. The reason we both love going there is cause of the food. It's very healthy & delicious middle eastern/ Persian food. Plus it's Halal which is wonderful as its hard to find few good choices of Halal restaurants. When we do in we have our usual order chicken kabob for me & my husband loves their lamp item with outstanding green rice!

Souk
So this is almost the same menu as their sibling restaurant Baboush in Uptown: well, except for quite a few more $$. Even the same musical playlist playing I the background. How sad. Is Moroccan food really so uninspiring?Chicken shawarma was bland. Beef shawarma was underspiced to be authentic, tasted more like a burrito really. Chicken Tagine was nicely done but chicken was overcooked and a little dry. Fattoush salad was salad-y.

Ephesus Mediterranean Grill
Ordered the sampler platter and got a ton of food: kebabs, gyros, lamb chop, lamb, chicken, beef and more. All delicious with perfectly grilled meats.My only complaint: way too much salt in the Adana and the gyros. And I'm not afraid of salt. My fingers are going to swell up later.Service is still sketchy: still too new to find their groove I'll assume.THIS PLACE IS BYOB!!

Terrific restaurant with an extensive wine list and wonderful food. I've always wanted to try the buffalo steak but the 3 times I've been there it wasn't available. Still, the service is great. The atmosphere is great and it's small enough and cosy enough to enjoy a romantic evening out.

Wonderful wine selection. The menu is changed often and i have never been disappointed by the service or the food and drinks. Definitely a great place to have a nice dinner, share a cocktail or wine and tapas. You MUST also go for the Sunday brunch. It's really in a league of it's own.

Zoes Kitchen
Referring to the location on Beltline & Tollway. It's quite nice. A good place for lunch if you're on a schedule. The food is good although I'm sure the chicken is processed. That's my only diss. For a $10 lunch it's almost exceptional.

We had dinner and brunch there. Brunch came in huge quantity Foods are fantastic. One of the best western food we ever eat. The owner and waitress were very friendly. Just wish they were open on Sunday. A must go restaurant.

Just a moment...
