We discovered Bucharest when our son had gone there with friends . He proclaimed that he had the best shawarma sandwich ever. We go all over the place for middle eastern food and for him to say that, we had to check it out ourselves. We couldn't believe how tasty and generous the food was! The "Bucharest" sandwich is my...

This is our must not miss restaurant when visiting the Detroit area. We stumbled upon it before a Tigers game a few years ago. Since then we cannot visit without stopping. Chicken Shawarma is the best I've had (and we do middle eastern a lot). Chicago hot dog is excellent as well. Bring your appetite and your patience. It's worth... More

This is a really bizarre place. Basically a tiny carry-out joint connected to a more spacious bar/lounge. Dining in consists of ordering at the counter, staking a place in the bar and waiting for your food to be delivered by a runner from the grill. It would be nice if they supplied at least plastic ware to eat with! One... More

I had Bucharest Grill cater a lunch for me and they did a great job at a reasonable cost. Got shwarmas salad and pop for 25 for under $200 including delivery. They do a lot of deliveries and were very easy to work with. Food very tasty.

I randomly found this gem because I was attending an event nearby (Park Street Location) and was hungry. When I ordered I was not prepared for what my $4.50 was going to get me. The usual shawarma fair is on the lite side and eating two in one sitting is not unusual. NOT the case here, this shawarma is packed... More

We visited the Bucharest Grill on Michigan and Trumbel. This is primarily a take out place as there are only four chairs. There are a couple of things to recommend this place. First, the food. It is excellent and well worth the price. For many, one dish at $8.50 is enough for two people. We ordered one main dish and... More

The place was packed, when I went during lunch time, but the line moved pretty quickly. I ordered the chicken shawarma, that everyone consistently raves about, and an order of curly fries. For only about $4.00, they really give you a large portion of chicken in the shawarma. The taste, however, is nothing to rave about. It was good, but... More

A local we met at the baseball game the night before told us we had to have a Shawarma. (SP?) We had no idea what that was. But he said they were fantastic, so the next day we went here for lunch to be adventurous! As we arrived there were huge lines, so we figured it had to be great.... More

I use Tripadvisor for all my travel, but had never looked to see what my hometown offered by other travelers' reviews. Downtown Detroit is on the up swing and there are a lot of new places I have not heard of. Bucharest Grill is one of these places. From the reviews it peeked my interest. My husband and I were...
