If you show up :45 minutes before closing time they will only serve you take out. This is a horrible practice and poor customer service. It's fast food it doesn't take that long to eat. On top of that, in your rush to remove chairs from the eating area you knock customers around who are in line to order food. The managers says this is the way they have been running their business and works for them. No apology. Only arguing with a customer who challenged them on their rule. Every restaurant I've been to, even upscale ones, will let you finish your meal in Peace even after closing time.

Horrible customer treatment.

My go-to place when I need to get dinner for the family and prices that are more than fair. Where the locals eat for sure!

Really nice kabobs with the accompanying hummis and felafels. The ingredients are fresh and the meats are well prepared. Conveniently located on South Lake near Del Mar. Good food.

Since my first trip to MC, I've been back again and again for take out. Since I was in the area and need to grab food for the familia, MC was in order. For the price of under $10 per plate, I got the chicken, lamb and lule kebab..and that was enough for dad's lunch the next day. While the kebab isn't Raffi's, MC's prices are fair and slightly better than U-Pick (a decent place still because MC's hours are not as accommodating as most other restaurants since they make most of their $ during lunch and can be choosy about their business hours). My go-to spot Mediterranean food in Pasadena.

Freshly made and very well made.
The person on the till was very helpful in explaining the details before I ordered.
Their Humus was even better than many restaurants in middle east . Garlic & chili paste further added the fun to felafel's.
Highly recommended.
