This place serve food that is very homey. Food is not fancy but solid and well priced. The hummus is fresh and the chicken kakbob is jucie and not dry.

We used to come here a lot. Weekly if not more. Yet recently we have not as the service and the food quality has dropped extensively. The service is very mixed yet most of the time it feels your inconveniencing the staff and they are not pleasant. They seem to get a new server every few months who always manages... More

Stopped in here today with spouse for lunch. 11-4 daily lunch specials about $6 each. Had a falafel pita and a lamb shawarma pita (included a drink). Friendly service (waiter from Azerbaijan) and delicious food. Restaurant is on the small side (6-8 tables) but the food is excellent. Free delivery available with $15.00 minimum order. Look forward to going back.

Lamb was tender and lean, rice flavorful. The falafel was the freshest, BEST I have ever had. Really small place with take-out available. Only five tables.

The food has always been delicious when we have come here. It is a small restaurant with a few tables. They probably have a lot of takeout orders. Many locals seem to eat here. We have had the soups (lentil, chicken noodle), the sharwma platter, chicken kebob platter, falafel sandwich) which were all tasty and freshly prepared. We recommend this... More

There are only 4 or 5 tables, so it gets really crowded at lunch. We went for dinner and had lentil soup (squeeze the lemon in and add a little salt), a large mixed grill called Istanbul Special Kabab (delish & enough for 2) and 2 Snapples. Bill was $42. Our waiter, Ramiz, was a young, attentive and very friendly... More

We stopped in here fairly late on a Friday night and the restaurant was pretty busy. We sat at the back and enjoyed watching everything going on. The food was delicious and what the other tables were having looked amazing. I had the lamb gyro shawarma and I'd go back without hesitation.

Friendly service and great food that is well prepared. Everything compliments one another. The first time we went there (on a groupon in Feb 2013) we had the lamb gyro on a plate with the bread- it was succulent and tasty. Now when ever we are in Manhattan we make a point to have the lamb gyro at least once... More
