Great food

Authentic, delicious food! Not a place where they wait on you, counter service, but food is excellent. Plenty of seating in and out. Will be back.

Owner claims she has the best gyro in town, I am not convinced... I've had better elsewhere. The pita bread she uses is quite good though... the babaganoush, a favorite of mine, was also really good and the chicken salad was superb!!! Chicken salad? YES! I was shocked but pleasantly surprised. I came in around 3 o'clock and saw a... More

The falafel and salads were delicious and fresh. There was a line and ordering was a bit chaotic. We ordered one "dinner" dish, but the grilled veggies tasted like they'd been coated wish gasoline - completely inedible (though they looked temptingly good).

My brother came into town and on a drive around riverside he had a craving for Mediterranean food.

I eat here at least once a week and just love the place. The owner is a really friendly guy and you can tell he cares about the food they serve. All the options I need and just so fresh. Reasonable prices.

This is the only place I have ever had Falafel that had the same taste and texture as what my Israeli friends make. If all you've had is the heavy lumpy balls that other places try to pass off as falafel, you must try it here. I just wish this place was closer to home and work, I would eat... More

Great little spot in 5 Points. Their hummus is really tasty. It has a medium texture. Their tabouleh is also tasty with a middle of the road taste. The two items work together wonderfully. Note that at night it transforms into a different dining experience. They take your order at the table more like a normal restaurant.

Great deal for dinner $8.99 for gyro & two sides. Gyrowas delicious, fresh, & hot. Skip Wendy's across the street & come here for a wow lunch or dinner well within budget.
