If you're in Detroit Bucharest is a MUST visit

I've lived in south east michigan for 25 years and yet somehow this little beauty had escaped me up until recently. As far as service is concerned, there isn't much of any, but if you want your mouth and mind blown by the best chicken Schwarma on the planet do not miss the opportunity to stop in... read more

This Corktown area eatery only has a carry out option but the food is amazing. The line was long around lunch but moved fairly quickly. My only critique is there really wasn't anywhere to eat other than my car. They should put In a patio area or expand with a dining room, The food makes this place great if you... More

While not too far from the river front, I imagine some people will stop at any restaurant to stumble upon while staying downtown. This place is a hidden gem for tourists and a well-loved eatery for locals. We got there just in time to beat the local rush. Great, healthy food at bargain prices! $19 for two adults?!? The chicken... More

Pure genius . When this place opened I thought what is this guy thinking ? It was a very ruff undeveloped part of Detroit . Relativity dangerous. But now it is always packed. The chicken schwarma is awesome. One of the best I ever had. I would like a bit more veggies in it but other than that perfect. Sauce... More

Small, congested area to order food and very busy on a Saturday night. The Bucharest Schwarma was packed with goodness.

My hubby and I traveled from outside of Flint to try this place out. It was worth the drive. They gave us a ton of delicious food and it was ready rather quickly! The only downside was the seating was very limited, but I would definitely recommend!

OK this place is not a restaurant it is a counter you order food at to go or you can set in the Park Bar and they will bring it to you. The Park Bar is what makes this review just an average review. Bucharest Grill food is real good and for the crowd at their counter they get the... More

The place is nice, the location is good because you can wait here before going to the Fillmore or to the Cliff Bell's, the food is good and there's always people!

We went here before a Tigers game since it was close by. I fully expected a more expensive meal but their prices are what they are despite it being game day and close to the action. You have to walk up to the counter to order then take a number and sit down. The staff brings you your food. It... More

Went there for lunch and had and had a sandwich that was great. Only downfall is that there is very little space to sit and eat. The bar inside is a separate business.
