I can always count on Bucharest Grill as a number 1 place to get food while I'm downtown enjoying the city's night life! Whether it's pick up and go or dinning in the food is great. One chicken shawarma and a large order of curly fries well do you just right. They have a great bar to next door and... More

Whenever I am downtown, try to stop by Bucharest grill and get a chicken shawarma. I'm a limo driver and look forward to Bucharest grill when I have a drop off in the area. Can't wait for the new location to open. Their menu is quite extensive, but that chicken shwarma is to die for! They're busy at the time... More

Bucharest has some of the best chicken shawarma sandwiches you will ever have in your life. Perfectly cooked with just a tiny bit of char to give it that off-the-grill taste with delicious garlic spread and a pillowy pita. I'm salivating writing this right now.

My husband and I decided to give Bucharest a try after hearing great reviews from fellow co-workers. This place doesn't look like much from the outside but don't let that fool you. Once you walk in the door you will be amazed by the amount of swarm as being produced from this small joint. They are excellent and one sandwich... More

Bucharest Grill is the BEST place for chicken shawarma. The sandwiches are FANTASTIC! Service is quick and efficient. The chicken shawarma salad is to die for! I suggest STRONGLY that anyone who loves a great chicken shawarma sandwich or salad visit BUCHAREST GRILL. TWO LOCATIONS! Downtown Detroit on Park and on Michigan Avenue. ENJOY!

Went to lunch at this new restaurant with some coworkers. From our downtown office it was about a 10 minute walk. Had my 1st chicken swarma & some fries. The swarma was excellent. My coworkers claim its the best they've ever had. The french fries weren't so great. They tasted like whatever else had been fried in the oil they... More

Very difficult place to figure out. Poorly placed menus in a logjam of people trying to place orders. The food was average. Just a confusing place with seating in yet another room.

Bucharest Grill has two locations in Detroit. One is downtown and the other is in Corktown. They're great for lunch or dinner.
