Great Experience. The food here was incredible!!!! My wife and I had so much fun. I can't wait to go back with my older kids, I know they will really enjoy the uniqueness.
Won't find better in Miami!. Food is fresh and fantastic. Service is very personable which is often lacking in middle eastern restaurants. Exactly what I've been waiting for in the Miami area
Pleasant Owner, Delicious Food, Great Hummus and Kabobs, Fresh Lemonade--A FIND!.
The hummus really is the best in this area. The cucumber yogurt is pleasantly herbally, lots of chunky-crisp cucumber bits. The falafels are crisp and delicious. The tabouli is just okay. I also found the tahini too diluted with lemon juice. The meat and thyme pies were both crispy and fresh, and the meat one was nicely "hot". The lentil soup was bland.
I've tried the beef kabob, the ground beef kabob, the chicken kabob, and the m'jadra (a lentil with rice malange topped with yumsy fried onions and yogurt on the side). All were very good. I was especially surprised by how nice the kafta kabob was (the g round beef one), with parsley and onion mixed in. On one visit, one of my chicken pieces was just slightly, barely undercooked and though it was just ONE small kabob piece, the owner's wife (our waitress) offered to take it back and cook it. Nice.
I want to put in the good word for the super herbally Fatoush salad.The toasty pita bits are a lovely crispness and the herbs are plentiful, but not obnoxiously so.
Desserts: The rice pudding is basic and perfect, sprinkled with cinnamon. The creme caramel was excellent on two occasions, offputtingly eggy on a third. Though the owner, Ali, said it was from the same batch--and I totally believe him--my sister and I could not eat it. I expected at least a credit for it, but, okay, there we go. I'm sticking with the rice pudding from now on. That's been consistently good.
The lemonade is homemade fresh and only 2 bucks! The turkish coffee is often not hot enough, but the flavor is tasty with cardamon.
Tonight, I'm going to do takeout and try the mousaka (eggplant appetizer) and the potato kibbe. I've eaten here five times in the last two weeks. That's how much we enjoy Kabobji.
Excellent middle eastern restaurant in North Miami Beach,FL. Great food & value with friendly service!. Best Falafel & Hummus, but there's something on the menu for every kind of taste. Definitely Recommended!!!
