Disliked:
Service and lack of cleanliness

We had dinner at Kaslik Mediterranean Cuisine in Hazelwood, Missouri. The outside of the restaurant looked somewhat shifty. The only wait staff in evidence seemed completely uninterested in our dining at his restaurant. The restaurant itself was almost empty except for one one other couple, despite a spacious dining area. We walked up to the counter and asked for a table for two to dine. The host pointed at the dining room and told us to select a table. The tables were not very clean.

Our host then brought out a stack of two plastic plates with napkins and silverware. He also brought our menus and two glasses of water. The only drinks available for purchase seemed to be botted drinks in a case by the cash register; none were listed in the menu or mentioned by the waiter other than the water he brought out. Katherine ordered the beef shawarma and a 6 piece falafel appetizer.

Chris ordered the lamb shish kebab that came with two skewers of meat and basmati rice. While the glasses of water were served in nice pint glasses, all of the food was served on plastic plates that gave the meal a somewhat "cheap" aura.

The food itself came quickly and was delicious. Katherine especially recommends the falafel. Service was almost wordless. The proprietor never came back to our table after bringing our food out. He did not refill our water. The positive was that the meal was unrushed and we were not made to be in a hurry to leave. The food deserves an A+ but the overall experience at the restaurant was a C.
