Fairouz Restaurant & Gallery Restaurant Review

: Although we aren't generally big fans of buffets, Fairouz has a decent version, offering a good variety and reasonable prices. We usually start with Greek-style lemon soup, sample some salads, and then concentrate on lamb dishes, grabbing plenty of well-prepared rice and pita bread to go with them. We also like the chicken, but tend to avoid seafood, which doesn't weather buffets all that well. Grape leaves and chicken tagine are other tempters. We typically finish with a good cup of tea with one of the ultra-sweet Middle Eastern pastries. There are also vegetarian and vegan options.
