“It's really yummy! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

This is the best pita we had so far.
It's very tasty and could taste the freshness of the ingredients.
I will love to visit again.

“Delicious pita of spicy and wonderful flavors!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I can't believe I lived around the corner from here for two months already and hadn't tried it. Wow. My fiance brought me a kebab from here (at least that's what i think it was) and it was amazing. First, it was wrapped in a perfect crispy pita, rather than the mediocre wrap found so often in the center. The beef/lamb? was thoroughly spiced, with the spiciness muted down by the pillows of feta. There were also vegetables, onions, sauce, fries, and I don't know what else. It was just a beautiful pocket of deliciousness. I would actually take the bus (22/23/57) to come here and get this.

“The best kebab I've ever tasted!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

I've eaten kebabs all over the world, I can honestly say, these kebabs are the best. Everything is homemade from the bread to the hummus, babaganush, falafels and the gyros of meat which he marinades on the premises.

There is always a convivial atmosphere as the owner is very friendly and funny. Order "uno fatto bene" or "garantito" and he will know exactly know what you want. He stuffs them full, so for €4 or €5 including a drink, you really get a good filling meal. I try to go there every week. That's how good they are!
