I used to live near Tangier's first location when I was a grad student at Hartt, and fell in love with it then. The new location is only bigger and better. Service is friendly and courteous. And the food is delicious. Falafel and baklava will blow your mind.

If your look for some amazing international food this is the spot. I got the eggplant parm and it was amazing. The family running the place are very kind and considerate.

Soon to be relocated, so if you want to try the best falafel in Hartford County, keep an eye out for when they move down Farmington Ave to Hartford. Such an amazingly nice, sweet, loving family owns and operates this landmark. Always a friendly greeting and besides the falafel, their other Middle Eastern dishes rock. Dolma is a favorite among...

We ate here for the first time yesterday after going to nearby Elizabeth Park for the Rose Festival. What a find. This middle-Eastern grocery store also serves made-to-order food, including some of the best falafel I've ever had in my life. Fresh, delicious ingredients and very nice portions. The stuffed graped leaves and hummus were great, but the falafel wraps--big... More

I highly recommend Tangiers Market - a middle eastern market with a fantastic selection of items and fresh food made to order. The falafel is well known to be the best in the area and it did not disappoint. It was perfectly spiced and prepared to perfection right before our eyes. I also recommend the baba ganoush. The grocery area... More

This is a cool Mid-Eastern grocery store but they make an awesome falafel sandwich!!! The wrap the falafel in a warm pita with fresh veggies and taziki sauce. It is SO good. The sandwich is good size. I usually get the stuffed grape leaves to go with it. Perfect lunch! I also bought some eggplant salad that was very food.... More

This international supermarket has a great selection of Israeli and middle eastern foods, I always come here for my specialty food shopping. The falafal to order is just above average, its nothing special but it is made to order in front of you and it is fresh. The hummus to bring home is above average. Friendly workers and a place...

Tangiers is first and foremost a Middle Eastern grocery store, but tucked along one side is a delicatessen/grill with counter seating and two tables behind the refrigeration cabinet, so don't expect a lot of atmosphere. It is more akin to the take out Asian restaurants with 4 tables if you insist on eating there. However!!! whether you order take out... More

They have good gyros and falafel but, portions are very small. You need to get somethingelse to be full. There are some counter seats to be able to eat inside but, it is not appetizing setting. They have a wide rage of middle eastern groccery and very friendly people.

Wow. Stopped 4 hours into our 10 hour drive to Maine. Gyros, falafel, baked eggplant, baba ganoush (smoky flavor?--stuttering over the wow factor), baklava. All excellent. Friendly, accommodating service at this family run shop. We will be back on future trips!
