My husband, our friend and I went to Tabbuli's for lunch while our friend was here visiting Charleston. Disappointed by our initial impression, we found that when we walked inside, no one acknowledged us and we were about to leave when a server finally brought us out to a table on the patio.

While the inside of the restaurant had several customers seated, the patio was completely void of guests. That being so, we were escorted to the furthest table out in the back of the patio. I did like the look of the patio with the flowing draperies and pergola and imagined that it would be quite stunning when beautifully back lit in the evening and incredibly romantic. 

Our server was new and apologetic for not knowing the menu. We decided we would sample the hummus which came with fresh pita slices and consisted of a blend of chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice which was topped with sliced pickles & black olives ($6), the falafel which are ground chickpea fritters with habanero, onion, cilantro, parsley, served with creamy tahini sauce ($7) and two gyro platters which were served with lettuce, tomatoes and tzatziki sauce and french fries ($9). The food was very good despite that the service was slow and it took roughly two hours to get through lunch. That being said, I will go back again and try it out just to get another feel for the restaurant. Everyone is entitled to an off day because the food we sampled was excellent.
