Good Mediterranean at Al Basha
If you want good Middle Eastern food, Al Basha is a pretty good place. It’s kind of hard to find though. It’s back behind the water store on Allisonville Road south of 116th street. If you go past the airfield you've gone too far. I think you’ll really like it. And their prices are pretty good too! Read More at The Whole Hog
Outstanding Mediterranean Food at Istanbul Cafe
At the Istanbul Café, you cannot go wrong. The food is as fresh as possible, the flavors are spot on.

But don’t let that keep you from going there any time you feel like having a great Turkish meal. And you can have a gourmet meal that won’t break the bank! In summary: The authentic food and flavors of the Istanbul Café took me back to my youthful years in Europe.

Pub Food at Lord Ashley’s is Disappointing
I cannot really recommend this restaurant. I'm not even sure I am willing to go back to give them a second chance. The worst thing a restaurant can do is serve something that is less than fresh to a customer. Once detected, it makes the customers question everything they've eaten that evening. In summary: I wouldn't bother. Read More at The Whole Hog
