“A New Location, excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

This has always been a favorite place for Pita Wraps and Gyros. The ambiance in the old location however left a lot to be desired. They are now in a new location in a new building right on Monterey Street. Bib, big difference. Both inside and patio seating. Food is still quite good and the prices quite reasonable. My wife and I had a nice dinner before the movie and the total cost was under $20.00

“Meditteranean in SLO.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Meditteranean in SLO. My favorite is the Giro sandwich, the meat combo plate, with side salad and pita bread/hummus. Oh yeah this is what I'm talking about, savory food!!

“Good enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

It looks like they are renovating. I was hoping to pick up some harissa, but the little grocery is gone. The sandwiches were just ok. The pita tasted like it was made with baking powder in addition to yeast. Not good.

“Feels like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

If you have been to Jaffa or Soho (UK), you will feel right at home at this place. Adnan is a gracious host and a reason by himself to visit. Adam is the surly chef, but he will give you a smile if you are a regular. The food is perfect as is the wild ambiance. It get's very busy around lunch time. I recommend calling in your order and taking it to Cuesta Park. And people - tip the cooks please.
