Pronounce it "fah-toosh," not "fat tush." Not only is that the correct pronunciation, but it's also unlikely you'll get too fat feasting on this restaurant's Middle Eastern dishes. That's because most everything on the menu is relatively good for you. Sure, if you eat an entire pan of baklava, you might gain a pound or two. But the heaviest thing on the menu is a lamb dish called minsaf, made with a sauce of aged yogurt, almond slivers, and cream. Otherwise, it's all the standards: chicken kebab, salads, falafel, etc. And there's worse out there to eat.
