Editorial Review of Sinbad's

This order at the counter, eat-it-and-run establishment provides fresh falafel for diners on the go. Sinbad's clean, storefront space offers about 10 tables and a few stools at the front counter. So while you can definitely find a place to roost while you down your Jerusalem salad, this is definitely not the perfect place to hunker down for a long, intimate meal. Aside from a few touches of Arabian-night flair (ornate sword sheaths hang on the walls and an Aladdin-style lamp crowns the counter) ambiance is kept at a minimum.

Sinbad's does, however, deliver on its promise of "delicious Mediterranean cuisine" at even more palatable prices. Look for the whole gang of Middle Eastern delicacies: The ever-popular rice-and-herb stuffed grape leaves go for $1.99 ($3.29 for the large order). The yogurt salad ($2.69) combines a roster of refreshing ingredients like cucumber and mint, and the tabouleh is mighty tasty. For entrees, go for the vegetarian sampler ($5.99) or chicken kabob ($5.79). Baklava ($1.19) is the standout star of the dessert menu. But just when you think you've guessed the theme, a bit of Los Angeles shines through the shawarma: Sinbad's in-house juice bar blends up smoothies in flavors like peach, mango and banana, boosted with vegetable protein powder.
