Like most ethnic restaurants this was not exactly like any other Middle Eastern food I had had before, but it was delicious and my husband and I enjoyed every bite. We had kibbe, falafel, hummous, stuffed grape leaves, tabbouleh, and lamb kabobs. It was all good -- even as leftovers. The atmosphere was quite pleasant and the service was good. If you have an urge to prepare Middle Eastern food for yourself there is even a small market attached to it. I have a large jar of tahini from there in my fridge right now -- very good. We will be going back to Norma's!

I was looking forward to eating at Norma's after reading all the rave reviews on Yelp dot com. Either those reviewers are relatives and friends of the owners or the restaurant has gone downhill since those reviews.
Anyway, I'm a big gyro fan and have eaten gyros at several places, mostly pizza shops. So I ordered a gyro at Norma's. Man, what a joke that thing was. It was all wrapped up tight like a turkey wrap or something you get at a deli.
So the appearance was not good. I opened it up and didn't see any lettuce or olives. Basically it just had the lamb meat, onions, tomatoes, and sauce. The pita bread was very flat like a tortilla wrap. If that was a traditional gyro, then I rather have the Americanized version at the pizza shops any day.
I ordered a mint tea also, which was ok. You'd figure that they'd garnish it with at least one mint leaf for presentation, but nope, they didn't. My girlfriend ordered the Shawarma Combination which was nothing to rave about either.
Lastly, the service was slow considering that there we were the only two in the restaurant at first. I would not recommend this place to anyone. At least they were not too pricey so it wasn't hard on my wallet.
