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.

They have amazing chicken schwarma sandwiches that you must try. You will love them. The french fries are awesome and you can split them because they are so big. This is a great place to go and watch a baseball or soccer game with a great atmosphere. A great drink selection tops it all off.

Seriously the best shawarma I've had in a long time. I'm a huge fan of food that loses its structural integrity about halfway through as well, forcing you to really get in there and enjoy the whole visceral experience of consumption. Bucharest Grill gets that done. I favor the chicken shawarma, but the Bucharest shawarma has cabbage which totally changes... More

Great place near work to grab lunch. Everything on this menu is blasted with flavor (usually garlic). Great prices, good service (order at the counter or at the bar). Usually hit it up at least once a week. Try to get there as close to 11am or after 1pm to ensure a seat.

The original place downtown behind the Fillmore has the best shawarmas at a great price. Have to also try their skinless sausage too excellent. Their stuffed pepper is aost as good as my polish mother used to make. Really you can't go wrong with anything you order. Little disappointed that there new location on Michigan ave is only a carry... More

On Oct 20, 2014 at 12:30pm, a team member and I placed a delivery order with Bucharest. We ordered two chicken shawarma's and a side of fries and we discovered a BUG in one of the sandwiches!! This was disgusting and unacceptable!! However, the way Bucharest "tried to accommodate us" made this the WORST experience EVER! Their lack of customer... More

Delicious schwarma at very affordable prices. The space itself is cool- modern and open, though the few times I've been there it's been crowded and sometimes difficult to find a place to perch. But it's worth it! Great beer selection, and their bloody mary's are good, too. Good location, near Comerica Park.

The grilled chicken shawarmas are a nice treat! Try a six pack of shawarmas the next time you are nearby. Food prices are very reasonable. Keep the parking meters full or you will get nabbed by any of the over zealous parking meter maids monitoring the area. Caveat emptor!
