Given the amazing reviews for this place I expected a Donair Palace, instead I found a very cramped and overly dumpy little corner store in a borderline decrepit residential area with very difficult parking. There is lots to love and hate about this place: LOVE:...More

amazing hummus, super spanikopita, best baklava, exceptional staff and fun owners. Sitting outside on their tables is always a treat. The Small Donair was plenty filling and always top it off with a baklava - best way to end the meal :)

Stopped in today while visiting. The portions were large, the chicken shawarma was fresh and tasty, the people were friendly, and the prices were reasonable. All in all an excellent experience. The baklava was good - though not my favorite. The deli is well stocked...More
