Very good, very friendly and quick

Went here on a Friday night. They were't overcrowded. We were greeted by a friendly server and served promptly. Food was very fresh, hot enough, and fast. Platters were a little on the expensive side, but we all left stuffed and happy with the service. I would recommend.

We went there last week because we wanted so bad to eat gyro..What a disappointment..The gyro was dry and on the top of that was so expensive..for a small portion like that its not worth the money you pay..

Well recommended from Trip Advisor so we gave it a try and weren't disappointed. Service was excellent, food was served quickly and tasted delicious. Authentic Greek and Turkish food. Make the trip.

Let me start off by saying that my husband is Turkish and we lived in NJ for the majority of our lives. In case you didnt know, NJ imports many turkish foods and items. NJ has some of the best Turkish restaurants, however, this place definitely meets our standards. We are military so we have lived in many big cities,... More

Seriously, the food taste delicious, great/friendly service, very reasonable prices, and very clean and attractive interior atmosphere . It is a family owned and operated business. The gyro, grape leaves, and baklava were excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Atmosphere is strip mall - not a biggie, but for the prices, seems like it should be nicer. Chicken kebabs were dry, salad had no dressing. Pita bread was great. Weird that you should have to ask for lemon for Mediterranean food. Didn't like that they assume you want bottled water when you ask for water with lemon. And two... More

My family and I ate here for lunch while on vacation. They had a buffett which was $14.99 and didn't include a drink. Your drink, even water, was brought to you in a 20 oz. Bottle and refills were not free. The food was tasty, but overpriced. We were the only ones in the restaurant and the one and only... More

We tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor and Yelp reviews. Maybe we were there on an off night, but the food was terrible and we all went back to the hotel feeling sick. We ordered the Chicken Tava, the Spicy Gyro Platter, the kid's chicken strips, and the Hummus. The hummus was dry and chunky. The tava was swampy... More
