★ I really wanted tacos, especially the Mexican versions, not the Tex Mex. I had been searching for Halal Mexican food for a very long time and I found Lasiaf through Yelp and Zabihah. I was very excited to go to eat here, even though, this place is 25 miles and a lot of tolls from my home.
I arrived at Lasiaf at 4pm on a Thursday afternoon. The store was quiet, a few orders being prepared in the kitchen and a customer waiting in the dining area. I placed my order for the Carne Asada, mexican tacos and an order of the Macho Nachos at the counter and I took a seat in the dining room. Time passed by, I smelled a lot of delicious aromas and was quite hungry. During this time, a few other orders were picked up by Uber Eats, and other take out folks. I was still waiting. I thought that they may be really busy in the takeout orders, so I bided my time.
One hour later, at 5pm, they noticed that I was sitting there and they told me that my order was ready (I had been sitting in front of the counter the whole time). I was presented a plastic bag with two styrofoam boxes. I paid my bill and told them that I would just eat there at the restaurant. I was so hungry, that I wasn't hungry anymore. Upon opening the boxes, the tacos were COLD, and soggy and not very tasty. The other box with the Nachos were also cold, covered with congealed cheese topping with a few pickled jalapenos sprinkled on top. The food was tasteless, cold and I felt that it was a complete waste of money by ordering there. Even covering everything in the bottled hot sauce, the taste could not be saved.
BTW, did I mention that I felt that there was attitude from the servers and no remorse that the food is cold, or if they could do anything. I ate what I could, and packed up the rest and brought it home. It sat in the fridge and was finally thrown into the garbage. I really hate wasting food, but it was completely ruined for me.
Other diners may have been happy and had a good experience, but I was totally disappointed and will NOT ever return. Posted on March 27, 2018
