Quick and Delicious

Fantastic and quick Mediterranean food in a welcoming setting! This place is a reminder that fast food doesn't always have to be terrible for you. Let's call it "quick food".

That is what you will hear from Win or one of his brothers when you walk in. Always welcoming and happy to see you. Through the years they have perfected falafel and gyros. Their home made Harissa is also a must on their sandwiches. Make sure to pick up some sweets as well as Arabic bread, hummus, Zatar and lebne... More

This place is clean and the food is excellent. It is worth a trip if you like falafel and gyros. The service is always great.

Best falafel around and the service is excellent. They have a store and deli, not really a family sit-down or romantic restaurant, best for takeout or a quick solo sit-down lunch.

Ok so if you are not taken by the handsome, friendly, kind men taking your order and assisting you through the menu (do not be scared by foreign food!) then the food will absolutely take you away! The falafel, the mujadara, the chicken kebabs...everything is unbelievably good. The best. My son insists we stop in every time we drive by.... More

I tried the new spot last Wednesday after a drink at Tisane. This is more of an international grocery store, that serves fresh food at a counter in the back. Ordered a falafel and a lamb gyro to go. Both were freshly made to order and very delicious. Lots of homemade Greek and Turkish deserts and sweets. The food was... More

Ditto prior reviewers. The food is wonderful and homemade and served by an outstanding group of guys. A class act with wonderful service. The Falafel is spectacular and the gyro’s are very good as well. Finish your meal off with the Baklava and some Turkish coffee and it is impossible not to be happy.

You will be warmly welcomed as you place your order and treated as part of the family even on your first trip. The deserts are incredibly good as is the Falafel Sandwich, I have not taken advantage of their extensive assortment of middle eastern food but everything is presented in a bright attractive display. Tangiers has always been an active... More

And the new location has more seating (still not enough), with tables both indoors and outdoors in summer. Although I stop in for Falafel about 4 times a year (I'd happily eat it every day, but I can't afford a new wardrobe), and always leave with a bag of groceries I pick out while waiting. Great place for middle-eastern specialty... More
