Gyro tasty, kebbe tasty

Gyro with lamb & beef good quality meat nice onions, tomato, lettuce. Kebba pretty small for $3 but tasty ground beef and pine nuts. Tahini sauce at table good on everything. Place not as good as Yumma's in San Francisco but pretty good and more variety.

There's no listing for the MD in the Southland Mall, but let me tell you the food here is FANTASTIC!!! I have had the Gyros and the Combination Plate and love both. The rice they put on the combo plate is especially good. The only thing I can say is that they should give you more pita bread. They cut... More

I go here for lunch sometimes, and I like their food, but the staff have never been to charm school. They like to hurry you out of your table so they can pack in another diner, so it kind of adds up to a not very relaxing experience. I think they lose more customers than they gain that way.

I have had gyros at other places ie. Chicago. This was wrapped like a burrito/wrap and needed more flavor or spice. The sauce (tazicki?) was so-so. I was a bit disappointed since this looks like a Greek owned restaurant.

The owner and most of the staff are extremely rude, disrespectful and racist. I don't understand how this restaurant stays in business. Food is OK, but don't expect customer service.

I stopped in after A quick Google. I ordered to go I got a side of dolmas and the veggie platter. I also got the Kufta plate. Both were great tasty and a good price. If you want good affordable Mediterranean food thats not priced at a Zagat level go here. Very little to no parking but worth the pit... More

The food was excellent, genuine and good quality at reasonable prices. I get that it's a very small restaurant, basically fitted out, and that it's 'fast' food not fine dining, but I do think they rush you too much, from trying to work out what to order to sitting down and being chased through your food. It's a great shame... More

Not the bomb! But, good. The workers were friendly. The guy who took my order rushed me a little too much. Couldn't think what I wanted before I was faced with ordering. Must go for 1st timers!

You will be blown away by the taste and "home cooked" goodness from the very first bite. I don't just recommend it, I challenge you to find a better meal anywhere in Northern CA. Your taste buds will come alive and your stomach will thank you. I guarantee it!!!!!

We frequent this fabulous place about once a week. We are both absolutely addicted to the Shawarma platter.....either chicken or the lamb. Delciously spiced meat thinly sliced on top of a bed of lettuce. accompanying this is the best Huumus on earth....truly exceptional. For dessert try the halvah...exceptional. This place is very casual, friendly and the food is superb.
