Great place, I have been going here for years and it is consistently welcolming. The food is great. I love their Irish breakfast. Just recently I had the smoked salmon and sausage rolls, delicious. Would recommend this place a fun place to eat and drink - and I should know I am Irish.........

These guys are excellent! The food is authentic, and they are very nice to customers. Their Gyros meat may be some of the best homemade in the area. Their hummus and Baba ghanoush is also incredible. Finally, they make their own bread which is always warm and fresh. Their prices are right and these guys are very quick and responsive... More

My favorite place on Castro. Excellent service and very tasty food! I visit the place weekly. I usually get the gyro sandwich.

When my husband and I first arrived in Mountain View in late January, we tried Gyro's House for dinner one night. The owner was very nice and even gave us a free serving of hummus to try with our gyro platters. We will be going back again and recommend other people give them a try as well.

Had a craving for falafel that couldn't be cured with anything but... Found this place online! Stopped by on a cold night and our wraps were ready in under five minutes! They've got hummus, tomato, lettuce, and falafel in them, all inside a lahvosh bread-- hella tasty even if it lacks the authenticity of the french fries inside (although that's... More

The guy at the register might have been the owner. We asked questions about the menu items on the wall and had trouble understanding his answers (made more difficult by his sneezing sort of to the side). I had a lamb/beef wrap and the Mrs. had lentil soup. The food was good, but the service was, let's say, uninspired. There... More

We go to this place approx. twice a month. I really enjoy eating their Falafel Wrap. The place is small but serves fresh & yummy food. It's best when you wanna eat light. We generally order one wrap and divide it in two. It's difficult to eat one full wrap at a time. So, be careful while ordering.

O)ne of the many Turkish owned establishments on Castro St, this one offering gyros and yummy falafel sandwiches. My personal favorite is the chicken kabobs - a huge serving of grilled chicken with a yogurt sauce. The platters include rice and salad. you chose your drinks from a cooler, beer and dwine included. Friendly gentlemen behind the counter. Attracts regulars... More
