    The food at Motek was delicious! So fresh! We split several small plates and loved every one! Only negative was that the food came out too quickly and too many plates at once.

    Super noisy, badly behaved children everywhere, barking dogs, front drive screaming with racing motorcycle engines and supercars racing their engines. Food is amazing as was the service but I’ll not be back. Too much noise, unpleasant and distracting for such an expensive meal.

    We sat at the bar. we ordered 2 main courses my wife received her main course. 20 minutes after ordering my main course I asked the barman to check on my order, he said that it was normal that it took a longer time... I told him that he could have advised us before hand so that we could eat at the same time. he didn't say anything. I finally received it 30 minutes after ordering... really not happy at all.

    Not a place to have a conversation. Loud music and people running all over the place. Main concern was that my husband’s main course came 10 minutes before mine. So I sat there and watched him eat and I waited. The excuse was that I ordered something grilled and he ordered something fried. Manager when approached could care less. So I watched him eat and he watched me. Evening was ruined. What a turnoff. Not the evening I hoped for.

    We went to this place tonight and the reason we went was that we were there but in the old location. The way I look at it is that they made the name for themselves and now they do whatever. We ordered Greek salad that was tasteless and the cheese was bland. Three minutes after the salad my chicken schnitzel came. That was odd, but my wife’s shishkibab didn’t arrive for another 15-20 minutes. So I ended up eating my food cold. Side note, I wanted to change hummus to babaganush and the waiter said absolutely not. That’s service. Then we ordered dessert, ice cream with shaved halava and my wife asked for mint tea. Useless to say ice cream came and as we were about to finish it the tea came. We sent it back and two waiters came to confirm that we are sending it back. Then came the young lady and introduced herself as the manager. I started telling her my concerns and she stood steadfast that this is normal restaurant operations. I’m sorry, but I’ve eaten in many restaurants and everywhere main course comes together for the table. And mind you there were only two of us. To conclude the horrible experience the manager brought the bill and it included a 20% service charge. I refused to pay it and she went on telling me that it’s the restaurants right to charge the service fee. To which I said: it maybe your right but not my obligation. Well here’s another restaurant that lost me, my family and friends as patrons. I don’t mind paying for good food and good service, this place has none of it.

    One of the best middle eastern meals I’ve ever had. Food was so fresh and tasty. Recommend the chicken schwarma, roasted eggplant, ceviche, falafel, branzino, hummus. Only thing we don’t like was the charcoal broccolini.

    All i can say is be sure your food doesn't come with hair,,,,, I took it out of my mouth, disgusting , I didnt do a show seems server was amazing but the manager didnt even have any courtesy , in other restaurant at least will have some attention as an apology. No looking for a free meal but some details are important

    Lovely evening. The only thing I disliked was the salmon entree came on a bare plate with nothing with it for $29.00. It should have at least been served with a few greens and or rice.

    Great experience from the food standpoint. However, what frustrates me is that they charge for bread and that they include the service - Which pretty much gives you no choice but to give them 20% regardless of the level of service.

    We fell in love with Motek. We've recommended it to many as a go to, particularly for the Burgers and Schnitzel. We've been to Motek twice in a week and noticed the food quality has declined from outstanding to just OK. We're wondering if there was a change in recipes, ingredients, Chefs, etc. Service and ambience remain excellent! But not sure I can recommend it to the extent like I use to.
