The best kept secret in Queen Anne? – Why is this place not packed every night? The superb ambiance, attentive service, tasty cocktails, and some of the best appetizers in town. Don't miss the coconut prawns. Seriously. They are not to be overlooked! Dinner menu is really good, perhaps not as spectacular as the appetizers, but still really good.
Outstanding! – Excellent food, excellent service. A great place to go for happy hour or dinner with a date and/or group of friends. Cool looking place and fresh, delicious dishes!
This location is closed as of August, 2007. – The Scene
There's not much to look at in this dark, two-part dining room in the heart of Queen Anne--but the gorgeous smells wafting from the kitchen more than make up for the lack of eye candy. Service is somewhat perfunctory, but extremely prompt.
Skip the appetizers--each entrée comes with both soup (usually some version of lentil) and salad featuring their famous super-garlic dressing (available for sale at the counter). The entrée platters have a small mound of creamy hummus and plenty of buttery rice to help soak up the spices. Shish tawook is slim strips of chicken breast drizzled with a spicy yogurt; the schwarma is a hefty helping of meat (lamb is excellent) with plenty of onion and peppers. All dishes are available spicy--and they mean it. Baklava is a delicate dream--cashews scented with rosewater and honey, topped with pistachios.
good but forgetful – The food has been recomended for years by my mom...I went to their website which said they were not closed during lunch hours...they were! So two hours later we returned to pay double...I payed for extra pita and got only 1. I came back and they corrected their mistake by giving me 3 more which was nice....but then I fouund an eyebrow hair in my food and a knat! Gross....the foos is good but could be more sanitary and less forgetfull.
Warm, kind service & the food's delicious! – I've eaten at both the Q.A. location & the one in Bellevue. Nearly always seated promptly, the tastes just start coming: a basket of warm pita bread, delicious lentil soup, salad with their signature garlicky dressing... and then the humongous entrees. They are attentive to guests, checking to make sure things like water, coffee (great Turkish coffee), etc are replenished.
I love the Farmer's Dish of tangy & garlicky plump chicken wings over rice with their great garlic bechamel. But I'd almost incite violence to get at their lamb shawarma.
The Bellevue location is more romantic. But it's not a diner as intimated by a previous post. It's simply a small restaurant with around 20 tables. I've enjoyed a few dates there & it felt warm, delicious and cozy to us.
In fact, I'll be having a hopefully fantastic 1st date there this Sunday!
That is all.
Good Food, Slightly Suspect Service – I think the food was good, not great but good. I also thought the service was efficient, but a little forced and not warm. I pick up a strange vibe there and there seems to be a lot of rules. I thought the food was flavorfull, but not spicy as everyone else says. It is a de3cent place to get Mediterranean if you are in the neighborhood, but I wouldn't want to make a special trip. There are far better places.
Yummy Chicken – There are many ways to prepare chicken in this world and definitely some of the most delicious preparations, regardless of cuisine, are done here at Med Kitchen. Breast, thighs and wings are done especially well here.
Portions are hearty and come with soup, salad and pita bread so there is really no need to order an appetizer. End your delicious meal with a cup of soothing Turkish coffee.
MMMM MMMM Good! – If you like garlic, this is the place for you!
The salad dressing is a garlic lovers paradise.
I have been coming here for several years, and have not had a meal less than great. I have sampled many of the dishes, but always go back to the Farmers dish, a feast of garlicky marinated chicken wings served on a bed of rice.
The house red wine is good, as well as the Turkish coffee and baklava.
Med Kitchen – Your rating showed this at an overall 9.7. There is a "kitchen" ambiance which was definitely not a "romantic" setting. You should clarify for people that this is more of a diner than a "romantic restaurant" and no reservations necessary-even on Valentine's Day-if that tells you anything. The service was very good and the value for your money was as well.
Delicious – If you looking for a dining experience and/or traveling with a car with a trunk (for the aromatic leftovers) then drop by and eat half the meal and reheat the rest for your next meal or just skip a meal and have a double sized meal for about a dozen bucks. Their standard soup and salad are good as are all their entrees. The service is fairly good as well but this is a place for "dining" not for chowing down a quick meal with the kids, pet dog, etc. OK? So if you're looking for a nice meal before a show I'd rate this place very highly. They are also vegitarian friendly so you can invite friends and not worry about their preferences. Their dishes do tend to be spicy and pungent but you can order certain dishes they lack this quality if desired.
