  • “The food is good but the service is TERRIBLE. Particularly the delivery service. Out of the 10 times (or so) I ordered from this place at least 5 times the delivery arrived with either the wrong order or 2 hours late or some similar problem. When you call to complain they tell you "oh you got the wrong order? Ok we have to pick up what you got first then we will place an order for a new one after we make sure you are not scamming us. It'll be another one hour in addition to the 2 u already waited"!! I mean what the ****? I am not ever ordering anything from them again!”

  • “I must have lucked out because I was thrilled to finally find some was "real" tabbouleh which was fantastic, as was the very tasty lentil soup with a nice lemon tang. Also had the yogurt and cucumber as a side and found that to be equally as yummy. The delivery only took about 30 minutes and I live pretty far from them. I hope I have the same positive experience the next time.”

    Maya

  • “Quality Lebanese food (i.e. not "middle eastern" in general) for those that want a taste of home. Ordered from them more than I care to admit in the last week (4 times is excessive?) but had to deduct a star because occasionally they're late. Really late. Quality is definitely always there however. ”

  • “I'm not one to write reviews--however, this was the worst experience I have had on seamless ever. I ordered tabouleh salad, hummus, and falafel and everything was soaking wet. I called the restaurant to get a refund, and the management was almost attacking me like I made it up. You shouldn't be disrespectful to a customer, ever, sorry. Instead of getting a refund, he said he was going to send me another one. Just to get off the phone, I agreed, but I should have gotten a refund without a fight.”
