“IT WAS THAT GOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

First time I got a falafel. Ate it in my truck as I drove. Finished. Turned around and got another.

“Fresh and authentic falafel. Best in Hartford area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

I'm usually disappointed with most falafels in CT. Not here! Followed the advice of other TripAdvisors and gave it a shot and will be going back for sure. The pita's are fresh and for real, a slight chewiness -- none of that half stale pita pocket crap from the supermarket that tears. The falafels were freshly made, crispy on the outside and moist inside. Interesting recipe too - a hint of raisin or probably dates, good spice level. Looking forward to another visit to try some other menu items. As everyone says, it's a market first and there's a countertop deli to eat at - very spartan accommodations but the food is authentic and excellent.

“The Best Gyros. Ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

An unassuming place filled with cans and jars that if you're middle American you probably have never seen before. Sit down at the counter and order up anything on the menu, the brothers that own the place will whip it up in short order for you. The gyros are simply the best.

“Love this eclectic place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We visit Tangiers regularly for the food and grocery items. The gyros are yummy, the family vegetarian loves the falafel, and I enjoy finishing off a lunch visit with baklava. You can usually pick up something prepared for dinner as well. I would recommend if you're looking for a light lunch slightly out of the ordinary for Hartford.
