The extensive brunch buffet included Ethnic as well as American alads, soups, shrimp, vegetables, bread and a variety of meats. It was replenished often and most of the chicken and vegetable selections were tasty. The beef selections appeared to dried out. We ordered Bloody Mary's which tasted like watery tomato,juice. We were surprised and disappointed that we were charged for... More

Good food and prompt service make this a nice greek restaurant. The choices are many and they try to accomodate your requests about changing some of the menu side dishes.

The food they serve here is quantity not quality, living in Long Island there are far better Mid East places. I was never a fan of any of the Ayhans.

The horrid stench out back alone would make you turn around and head for the car. After walking through the thick aroma of garbage I still gave this place a try a couple of times. Dry meat, cold and stale fries and prices that are not reflective of the quality of food they attempt to serve you. I'd stay away,... More

I used to go to this restaurant with friends for lunch, and enjoyed their varied menu, then one luncheon date as we all started eating we realized the quality of the food no longer tasted very good. we did try it one more time---and to no surprise we have never been back there again.

Not sure what happened since our last time going to this place. The service was not what it should be. Took 40 minutes to get our meal and the order was wrong. Asked to see the manager and the manager never showed up to our table. We were totally shocked that the manager did not show up. Sorry to say... More

I was with 3 other people. They ordered shish kebobs of steak, shrimp and chicken. I ordered the lamb shish kebob......... While they all raved about their meals, I was not impressed. The 'lamb' had no flavor other than grilled. I didn't taste lamb or steak....it was just blah. I even gave samples to others, and they were equally perplexed... More

I went for lunch with three girlfriends to Shish-Kebab. We love the ambiance there. We had an excellent waitress. She explained the regular menu and lunch menu and which would be more cost effective for us with the coupon we had. The waitress did not rush us with our reading the two menus. We settled on the lunch menu and... More

This place is a disaster. Busboy cleaning filthy bathrooms and serving food. Totally understaffed, food terrible, chewy chicken,rock hard falafels,spicy feta was soo bad. The poor waiter kept apologizing for his restaurant. Clean up your act owner before someone gets sick!
