very small potions now, odd people- random customers- walking around food prep areas since the counter that would have blocked them has been removed, higher prices but all of the salads and platters have shrunk- one olive?

Love the lamb shank, kabobs, and the koshari. Almost impossible to beat the combination of quality and price here. The interior of the restaurant could use some updating, but who cares-- the food is delicious!

We enjoyed a gyro, shawarma and eggplant salad at Astor. The service was slower considering we were the one of two customers, but perhaps it was because it was 9 and they close at 10. Will try again during our next visit.

Astor International Cuisine was originally Astor Mediterranean. But somehow, they became more renowned for their pizza, and indeed, the pies are way superior to the mediocre mediterrranean fare. (It's been a gradual process -- I believe the kebabs used to be a lot better than...More
