Mandaloun Mediterranean Restaurant on Jacksonville's Southside

I've lived in this neighborhood for too long to not have tried Mandaloun before! My date and I were welcomed enthusiastically and shown exceptional customer service throughout dinner.

For a starter, we shared the Baba Ghanouj, which was excellent, and Fattoush, which had a dressing that was out of this world! For dinner, I ordered the mixed grill (skewers of lamb, beef and chicken) and had a very difficult time choosing which was my favorite meat of the three, all were perfectly cooked and very flavorful. My date ordered the Chicken Shawarma, and while I didn't have plate envy, the couple bites I tried told me it was a dish I wouldn't hesitate to order in the future. To finish our meal, we shared Baklava that was excellent - just the right size for a good taste.

Overall, we were very pleased and will not hesitate to go back soon. From the exceptional service, to the generous portions, to the outstanding food, I absolutely recommend Mandaloun.
