The menu was inspired by Martha's cooking talents and became very popular with customers as well as critics.

I ordered a gyro. I expected a sandwich smothered in tomatoes, cucumber sauce and onions. Instead I received a piece of pita bread, meat, rice and a Greek salad. When I asked where the rest of the stuff was I was told I ordered the plate instead of a sandwich. They never offered to make it right. I would have paid the difference. I choked it down. Never again.

The Fashion Valley Mall is possibly one of the most generic dull "could be anywhere" type places we have drifted through. Wouldnt have bothered but needed something to eat after arriving in San Diego after a drive from LA.

The food court area is devoid of most of the big players - no McDonalds KFC Pizza Hut etc which is a good thing and gives smaller enterprises a chance to stand out.

We had a couple of Giros Kebabs and they were great. Very friendly young ladies serving - overall for a food court outley a nice ambiance all round. Really nice Kebab and a nice selection of dipping sauces and the like to choose to go with it.

So thank you - bit of an unexpected treat in Blandsville USA.

Part of food court at Fashion Valley mall. Good size portions, made on premises while you wait, only short time, with friendly service from staff. Nice common area to sit in sun or under cover. Good value for money.

Nothing offensive about the food, but it was very bland. Does not warrant the high rating (currently 4.5/5). Tried the ground beef kebab platter and chicken kabob sandwich - both were typically bland food court fare.
