I was excited by the 5 star rating and having something a little different in Greensboro. I was apprehensive about the strip mall location, but trusted the food and atmosphere would live up to the rating.
We had the hummus and the baba ghanoush. The baba ghanoush was quite good, but the hummus was coarse and underseasoned. The pita was very floury and tasted like it had spend the day under a heat lamp. For the main course, we had the kofta and filet mignon kebabs and lamb. The meats were all fair at best. They were very plain, a bit overcooked, and generally lackluster.
The atmosphere was similarly lacking, having all the hallmarks of a former strip mall pizza place quickly converted to an Egyptian restaurant.
I probably won't be back.
