Delicious authentic Mediterranean food. Family environment. Meat is very tender. We tried the Beef sharwma sandwich, beef kabob plate, Zatar and meat pies. All were good. They serve gelatos and Arabian sweets. A little bit on the pricey side but worth it.

Bakery to die for, I have never seen so many different kinds of baklava in my whole life. I wish I had skipped lunch and just gotten dessert. Anyway, I loved my lamb kabob dinner, wanted to bathe in the tahini sauce. Also had grape leaves, salad and rice with my meal. Go here on game day!

I have dined at Afrah a number of times. It was featured on Guy's Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, which is how I learned of it. It offers a wide variety of items, even some Indo-Pak dishes. The serving staff are very nice, but the food on recent visits has been only so-so, the hummus, tzatziki, and baba ganoush not so... More

The service was good but the food seemed like a fast food version of mediterranean. Atmosphere was like typical casual dining.

Take a culinary adventure! The gyros and baklava are excellent! In fact, everything was good. :-) I recommend you start with a shared appetizer to sample falafel, hummus, and the grape leaf rice rolls.

Have eaten here many times and will continue to do so. Their buffet is fabulous and my favorite appetizer is the grape leaves. The Hummus is creamy and the Baklava is a perfect ending to a delicious meal.

We've been coming here for many years and considered it our favorite Mediterranean restaurant. I think the quality has gone down since they moved into their new building. We went for dinner on a Saturday. The restaurant was maybe 1/3 full. The wife ordered the lamb kabob and I got the chicken kabob. We waited for more than 30 minutes... More

I went an hour before they closed the buffet. When I enquired about the food being put out, they ASSURED me they would fill the trays till the end. Not happening. Most of the buffet line (which you can t see when you pay or enter the place) dishes were empty. When we asked about filling them they acted like... More
