Okay so I know the pictures are not swell and they certainly dont do the food any justice. However, I only took pictures of the buffet items I or my lunch mate enjoyed. The potatoes were flavorful, properly cooked but not mushy and had a tomatoey savory base. The cabbage was a surprise with a nice lemony flavor. The soup reminded me of asian porridge with the lemon incorporated in the soup base. Would be great comfort food. I went back for seconds on the potatoes and my friend went for seconds on the cabbage.
The gyros meat was juicy and flavorful--only gripe was that the meat was shaved on the smaller side (not as pretty). The chicken was lemony and fall off the fork cooked. The tomato with eggplant has a KICK! If you cant handle spicy, stay away. I liked it alot but I'm a pepper fiend. Its served room temp I believe.
Last item: Bas Bas is a wheat, honey and yogurt dessert. Intense honey taste, with a texture similar to cake/ muffin hybrid. My friend loved it, but I have a love hate honey relationship. They also have fruit and yogurt in the dessert area. Generic desserts. I was hoping for more of a nice dessert variety.
My only quibble about this place was that they let the bins get too low so you would sometimes end up with the bits and pieces on the more popular items. To be fair, it was lunch time so maybe thats why it was harder to keep things replenished. They had a fair assortment of teas as well. If I had more money I seriously would have walked away with a piece of art from the walls. They also sell simple made jewelery on site as well.
