What a sloppy mess!

This restaurant cannot get it together when it comes to take-out. I have ordered from them a total of five times over the past year and two out of the five times my order is either missing an item or the food is cooked poorly or both. This was the third time my order was wrong.

This third and last time I ordered, and believe me it is the LAST time I order from them, the calamari was poorly battered, overly fried (to the point it was almost black in color), rubbery, thrown in the container and to top it off, swimming in a puddle of olive oil. Sloppy and inedible are kind words for the mess this place served me. I just took the container and threw it in the garbage.

Moving on to the the entrees (a chicken kabob platter and shrimp kabob platter). These appeared a little more presentable except all the vegetables were burnt. Now this little bump in the road could have easily been overlooked except the rice, hummus and proteins were all over the place in the container and of course there were no sauces for either entree. The pita bread was old so it joined the calamari and vegetables already in the garbage. Luckily I had some of my own pita bread at home.

I've called and spoken to the manager/owner the first two times and it's always the same, he apologizes and says he'll take care of it. Yeah, I see how he takes care of it. He does NOTHING.
Personally, I will not eat from this place ever again. Three strikes and you're out! Let them serve the slop they chose to serve me and my family to their families. They won't get one more dime from me. Shameful!

    Thanks for the heads up! New to PP and had been thinking about giving it a try.

    One thing I noticed, is they never seem busy at lunch. Even today when I was at Publix at lunchtime the restaurant was pretty empty. That to me is a sure sign that there might be problems.

    Although they seem to have their followers on other "foodie" sites, I think I will pass.
