Don't Go!!! – This place has really gone down hill. Don't go. Service is really bad. The cook has no sense of timing. Most of us finished before the last plate arrived. The food was nothing like it used to be. I complained to the manager/owner who didn't even apoligize. Satisfying the customer is the last thing on Amel's menu. Spread the word - this place is horrible.
Disappointed – Have been long time customers and Amel's was on of our favorite restaurants but some of our favorite meals are not what they used to be.
Better Than Cheers – Myself and my wife, Natalia visit Amels at least once a week. We love the entire staff and the food is delicious !!! Beth,Michael,Jimmy,Nickie,Laura and the entire staff are simply the best !!! Sincerely, Mike T.
My favortie local restaurant – When asked every year where I want to go for my birthday, I always pick Amel's. I've tried a few of their dishes (Alladdin pasta is out of this world) but most times I stick to sharing a few appetizers. The stuffed grape leaves, She Crab soup, hummus or the Amel's salad with lemon mint dressing and feta. My husband usually gets the gyro platter or the shis kabobs. I haven't had a bad meal. The atmosphere is casual and the staff is friendly. If you like greek food (or even if it's your first time trying it) Amel's is a must!
Horrible – I generally don't do this kind of review but this place was awful. I will NOT be going back! The food was way too spicy and undercooked. Blech!
Large Variety, Unique Decor, Delicious Food – I went to Amels twice. The first time the chicken I had was dry but my cousin and aunt first word when they bit into their food was ummmm yummm and that continued.The second time i got chicken asiago which was delicious. I would have liked to have more mushrooms but i ate the whole thing. And both times i went for an appetizer we had spinach and articoke dip which was excellent.The pita bread they give in the begginning of the meal is warm and yummy. I suggest Amels ( at least once) even if greek isn't your fortay you will find something you enjoy. = )
If you like lamb, this is the place! – This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Pittsburgh area. Unassuming and good food, what more can you ask for! Great place!
Food is good, but a little pricey – Ate here for the first time. Its supposed to specialize in middle eastern but I was disappointed by the lack of mid east dishes. I ordered hummus for an appetizer and it was delicious. My main course was the qyro platter which was the best value at $7.95. My boyfriend ordered spaghetti with pepperoni. He said it was good but it was pricey at $14.95. They need to add more mid east dishes and lower the price on some items.
A local institution in the southern suburbs of the city. – The Scene
Housed in a small strip mall in Baldwin, it has a medium-sized dining room with kitchenesque '70s decor with banquettes and tables.
The seafood and pasta here are assumed to be fine, but the Persian food is so good, it's hard to order anything else. There is a wonderful Persian salad, with lettuce, parsley, tomatoes, cucumbers and crispy pita chips, served with a sweet pomegranate dressing.
If You Order One Thing
Most people opt for the kabob dishes--char-grilled skewered meats served with salad, mixed vegetables, rice pilaf and pita.
