I live 2 blocks from TKS and eat here at least twice a week. I always get one if the doner boxes. Its a good portion of food for a good price. Great for a quick, somewhat healthy meal. The sauces are pretty awesome to. Keep up the good work guys!

We stopped in during NFL halftime on Sunday for a quick lunch. It was delicious! The cashier was so kind and helpful. Service with a big smile. Good sized portion and cooked to order.

After all the rave reviews, we really wanted to like this place. But, the food quality just did not measure up: * Falafels undercooked - in fact totally RAW & GOOEY in the middle * Kebab meat was dry, cold, and without much seasoning * Garlic Yogurt Sauce - very basic and seemed mass produced * Hot Sauce - too...

I had ordered the shawarma sandwich and was expecting the meat to be real shawarma instead of the gyro style. The sandwich still tasted really good and the portion is size is really big. Great taste and Value.

We were craving kebabs and located this one online. Went for dinner and was not disappointing. Both had a doner (flat bread wrap), chicken and falafel. Very generous portions for the price. The bread was grilled, which tasted great and the filling was fresh and delicious. Friendly staff and clean restaurant. Can definitely recommend.

After a long drive from Los Angeles, I checked in to my hotel and was hungry. This place was walking distance so I decided to give it a try. I wanted the salmon kebab but they were out of salmon. So I chose the chicken. The guy said it would take 12 minutes since they make it fresh. That was... More

Had my first İskender kebap here. Overall this place has great food at great prices. Unfortunately sometimes it gets really packed, but the food is worth the wait. Portion sizes are also pretty large, so you'll definitely get your money's worth.

made first trip last night not knowing what to expect. I ordered the lamb kebob and my wife ordered the chicken platter. Food was very, very good, but portions were huge so plenty of leftovers.
