Its popular with the locals, as price is good. Teenagers and youngsters come here often, as do groups of young professionals.

Stopped in for a Gyro - horrible. Ordered without lettuce and it came loaded with lettuce. The lamb was reheated from the fridge and cut up -- it was hard to chew. At 12:30 on a Friday there were 3 customers - total.

Good middle-eastern. Skip the Italian menu. Don't go on weekends, it's overrun with teenagers there for the apple tobacco hookahs (unless that's what you're looking for). BEST TABOULEH in New Haven, possibly CT.
