“Excellent falafel, schwarma and kebabs, with all the salads, in huge portions.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

The falafel, beef and chicken kebabs and chicken schwarma are all great. Lamb/beef schwarma (aka gyro) is the weak link. All served choice of pita sand, wrap or plate. Hummus and salads are all solid. Portions are massive; plates (especially when ordered to go) are often enough for two.

“Great falafel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

Really, really great falafel, fresh pita! Very authentic, close to the best! Make sure you ask for the pickles and pickled peppers and vegetable to go with it. Really good fries too! Soooo going back again and again!

“Wish I could have gone back for another meal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2010

First time at this restaurant, but I hope it will not be my last. This is a small, very casual place that does not take credit cards or checks, so bring cash only. Very tasty food, very authentic (having lived in that part of the world, we know!)flavor. Not for the burger and fries crowd. Enjoyed my meal and wished I had time to return the next day.

“Lamb meat was quite hard and lumpy but overall the food is OK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2010

No, there are some quite special items about the menu of this joint other than, perhaps, the meat which was quite hard, chewy and lumpy. We ordered the hummus, lamb kebob and baklava. The atmosphere was pretty good as we dined outdoors, perhaps too close to the road. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the prices were excellent for the experience. The baklava was one of the best we have recently had (we like it oilier and sweeter, that's why). We even got the olives for free. Overall, we would come back often but would ask for less overcooked and less tendinous meat.

AQMRN.
