Timeline of a birthday diner: 4:30 - wife asked me what I wanted for my birthday dinner and I said we had not had Albadia in a while and it was one of my favorites. 5:30 hopped online ordered ahead, paid my bill online and was told food would be ready in 15-20min. 5:51 - received e-mail receipt. 6:05 showed up at restaurant provided them with my order number and was told my food was nearly ready - no more than 5more min. 6:25 asked the manager how much longer it was going to be as it was my birthday and I had people waiting for me at home - told only 5 more min. 6:45 politely asked for my money back so I could leave - told my food was ready - manager disappeared never to be seen again. 6:55 asked the teenage employee the manager left behind to deal with the disgruntled adult (me) for my money back a second time so I could leave. Told my food was ready. 7:10 I finally got my food. 7:20 arrive home to find the food both burned and cold. The only advantage to sitting there for over an hour was it gave me plenty of time to think about how to revise my former 5 star review. I love small family owned restaurants and I really liked this place - it makes me sad when horrible management destroys a good business. This place use to be good - I will never go back.
Tried something different for a change and the food had outstanding flavor. The rice was absolutely great, basmati rice its called, really good, the meat was tender and still moist, shaved thin that also had a little of the fat in there which enhanced the flavor. Their sweet tea had a very good flavor as well. If your in the area stop in here and try them out, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. 2 thumbs up!
Always perfect. My favorite is the Albadia Mixed Grill. It has a little bit of everything and it's all fantastic. Try a Turkish coffee or one of the desserts. You won't be disappointed. This is my favorite Mediterranean restaurant. I've been coming here for years and I've never had a bad meal.
We have been here multiple times and they never disappoint. The food is hot, fresh, reasonable and delicious. The hummus is the best we've had. Everyone is very courteous and welcoming.
Taking into account it is a locally owned by a family we will give them a five star rating. There are some rooms for improvements. Could be a little cleaner could Have a little more refined decor, but that is part of its charm, including the young son as our server. They had fun flavors that we can’t get in Central Missouri, and aesthetically pleasing and presentations. They had a very tasty baba ghanouj, eggplant salad was a little soggy but full of flavor, and the mixed kebab platter was a good sampling of what they have to offer. We will come again as they had many more wonderful choices to offer!
