Flies - Clumpy old rice - terrible service

My family used to love going to Aladdins. The food was so great we were willing to put up with the bad service and long waits, but after going this Friday, we won’t be going anymore. The service was equally bad, the tables were dirty even though there were no customers there. The waitress was literally eating with another friend between getting our orders and bringing our food. We ordered the Mezzi plate of appetizers and we heard the cook say from the back “I don’t know how to make that” (it is only a platter with hummus, baba ganoush and falafel). So the waitress returned and told us “we don’t have all the things we need for that appetizer, can we get you something else?” There were flies in the restaurant and overall a dirty appearance.
The food used to be delicious, the rice seasoned with mediterranean spices and fresh. Now the rice was at least a day old, clumped together and seasoned with what I would assume is chicken bullion. Nothing “Aladdin” about it. The gyro used to be quite good, sliced gyro meat on it. We got chucks of something, not sure what. The food quality has dropped completely.
Overall a very disappointing experience. This restaurant could be so much more…it had great potential, but apparently the owners don’t know how to manage a successful restaurant.

Gyro Platter

I could make this better at home – without the flies
