Knight Restaurant is hidden away among a plethora of other restaurants in an area of San Fernando Boulevard that was once known as “Beautiful Downtown Burbank.” The competition for both lunch and dinner is fierce, but Knight Restaurant delivers the goods.
Knight can be deceiving from the outside, but you will be pleasantly surprised once you step past the al fresco dining area and enter the clean, stylish interior. What stands out besides the food in this Greek and Mediterranean restaurant is the fast service, the ready smiles and the chatter from the owner, who obviously loves Burbank.
The menu has all the usual Greek and Mediterranean suspects — sarma, falafel, tabuleh, shawarma and a long list of kebabs. The most expensive item on the menu is a shrimp kebab for $14.95 followed by a rib-eye steak for $13.25.
My son and I started our mid-afternoon lunch with an order of sarma ($3.80), stuffed grape leaves filled with a mixture of rice and special seasonings. It is very tasty and a nice lead-in to the rest of the meal.
