Aladdin's Eatery - still undecided about my falafel festival

I really can't figure out if I liked it or not - I mean - it's been a couple of hours - and I still can't figure it out.

Well - I'll share my experience of Aladdin's Eatery in West Chester with you and let you decide if you want to go...

Service - it was scattered but attentive. We had 3-4 different servers stop by for a variety of reasons.

Appetizer - we got the Vegetarian Combo - hummus (pretty good), eggplant hummus (eh), grape leaves (pickly flavored but good), tabouleh - eh not so much and falafel (really good). Price - $9.95

Entree - I had Sfiha and my friend had Fatayer (vegetarian). The Sfiha was very good - it had a strangely familiar taste that I still can't place. It's ground beef, onion, spices in a pita burrito type of thing. Price - $8.95 each

The pitas were not as good as a typical greek place - they were thin and tasteless - I wasn't a fan.

The desserts looked absolutely fabulous - there were so many and they looked fabulous! But will the app and entree - we were full up.

So - anybody else been there? See my dilemma? There was good and bad...I'm so cornfused!

I'll give it a 2.5 - which I guess would mean - I'd go back again but wouldn't be as adventurous and might leave room to try some of that fabulous looking dessert!
