Summary: This chain restaurant offers a warm and vibrant dining atmosphere with the beauty of traditional Arabic features and is another favorite spot for lunch. The restaurant also offers a casual patio area for outside dining located in the central plaza of Pentagon Row. They tend to get busy during lunch, so service can be slow. The garlic sauce can be kickin’ – they even have mouth wash dispensers in the bathrooms. Parking is available in the mall parking lots. Closest Metro is Pentagon City.
The sandwich platters can be a bit tame for me, so I prefer the mezze platter so I can sample a little bit of everything. The nine little squares are always very filling – but keep in mind this is only available on the lunch menu.
What I ate:
♥Vegetarian Mezze Platter♥a sampling of spinach pie, fattoush, falafel, hommos, lebneh tabouleh, grape leaves, olives and tahini sauce
Chicken Shawarma Sandwich
