We came here to try the chicken shawarma because of the previous reviews. I've only had a few Mediterranean dishes, but this tasted like a chicken ceasar wrap to me. It was like they just put garlic sauce on it. It was very good though, but it just didn't seem like the chicken shawarma that I'm used to. We also... More

Yes this still , in my opinion , is the tastiest shwarma sandwich around. We went to the downtown location for the first time with friends. The food is definitely worth the trip from the suburbs. The only complaint I have is the seating and service. You are basically on your own if you want a seat or anything other... More

This is the place to go for a cheap, quick, tasty lunch! You can order takeaway or grab a seat in the adjacent bar and they'll bring you your food. So it's actually a pretty nice atmosphere for a cheap spot, since you get to enjoy sitting at the cool bar. Very busy place! Bit of a queue to order.... More

Short walk from downtown or the monorail, great bar with an excellent takeout grill attached. Have some cold ones, check out the new light rail being built on Woodward and order the Chicken Shawarma from the grill, one more and then to the game on the monorail. Oh yeah!

Really good & fast Med food. Schwarmas and fried cheese. Lotta grub for the money. Enjoy with a brew at the adjoining State Bar.

If you don't like garlic then tell them to go easy with the sauce. I've been to both locations and the food has been consistently good. Both were very busy and the wait is usually 20 minutes for the food but it's worth it. We also tried the skinless sausage (awesome), Romanian sausage (very good), hot dogs (average) and the... More

This place is great, 2 blocks from comerica park, close to the fox and hockey town. The chicken shwarma sandwich is great and the garlic sauce to die for. Their prices are reasonable. The cheese pie is tasty and the cheese they use savory and strong. Nice bar area also. They are always crowded, good place to people watch.

Bucharest Grill is technically a carry out restaurant that works out of a little hole in the wall. It is connected to a bar that has seating around the bar and some tables surrounding. The process is to go and order your food at Bucharest and go to the adjoining bar to find a table (standing is also available with... More

Because Romania is equally Christian and Muslim, the food, too, must be fused... so focus and think about this. Imagine chicken paprikash made into a shawarma. Imagine garlic chopped so coarse it looks like couscous. Imagine fresh greens and tomatoes. Yep. You've got it. The best chicken shawarma ANYWHERE!

I always do lunch at the Bucharest when I am visiting my son in Detroit. The sauce on the Swarma is delightful. Very nice relaxed atmosphere and is located in the heart of Detroit. You place your order, get a number and they bring it to you.
