This is a grocery store with a sit down counter. Items are cooked on the grill in front of you. The boys are all very pleasant. We enjoy the falafels, hummus and gyros.

I just moved to the area recently and came here for my lunch break. The Falafel was incredible. We also got the chicken gyro and stuffed vegetarian grape leaves (also so so good.) Excellent, friendly service. Clean as a whistle. And shockingly low prices for the quality of food. This was my first time here but absolutely not my last.... More

The Falafel can't be beat. I always grab a container of hummus and some pita bread on the way out. The hummus is out of this world. Great mixed with a little ajvar. The guys that run the place are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. I've been going there for 20 years and I'm still impressed.

Whenever my adult children visit from California, Tangiers is a "must" destination. The authentic and very tasty Middle Eastern food and the unfailingly friendly welcome every patron receives are Tangiers' trademark. We always enjoy our meal and the food we take home when we visit Tangiers.

Been to this place a million time mostly for the falafel but sometime shopping for Mediterenian ingredients fresh clean always made the same way. Small counted in the back of the store, you have to wait until they make it From scratch. Excellent !!!

As a falafel fanatic I was pleased to find this gem near the Mark Twain house in Hartford. The falafel here are made to order, so don't be in a rush,or call ahead to order. The falafel is well worth the wait. The place itself is beautifully laid out. Very neat and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. You... More

I absolutely love the food here. They have great falafel and gyros, and the store serves as both a restaurant and a store. The staff were friendly and answered all questions. I liked their spanakopita and baklava as well. I've come here from outside Hartford because their food is great and affordable.

Truly wonderful gyros!!! They used to be across the street from me. When I found out that they were moving, I was so relieved to know that they were only moving a couple of blocks away. The owners are so genuinely friendly.
