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.

Best gyros, falafel and baklava I've ever had. Even better than what I had in Greece! Stop in for lunch whenever we can!

Tucked inside a marvelous middle eastern market is this gem of a counter service (and tables) restaurant. The falafel sandwiches are out of this world. The spinach and feta pie was equally amazing. This restaurant/market is run by brothers who are lovely and kind as well. And the baklava....

I ate here for lunch with a group. The meals provided in their restaurant space are simple but flavorful. They had a variety of inventive drinks to choose from, including nectars that did not have as much sugar as sodas—a plus for me. All of the staff in the establishment were friendly, courteous, and efficient. I surveyed the products in... More

We stopped here based on TripAdvisor and weren't disappointed. The restaurant is in the back of the market, so you can also find many unique items as well as lunch. The tabbouleh was the best I've had, an ideal mix of parsley, tomato, and bulgar, nicely flavored. Lamb gyro and very tender dolmates were also very good. The brothers who... More

I have been going here since they were at their last location. I love the falafel as well as other items like Baba Ghanouj, Tabouli, and gyros. The store is nice as well. It is worth a visit for a delicious lunch and to poke around the store, im sure you will find something!!!

We were taken to lunch their by our son who goes their a lot. What a great place - lunch counter, little tables, right there in a Middle Eastern grocery store. My chicken curry was delicious. Had to pick up harissa, fava beans and a few other treats from grocery selections! - extensive choices from Turkey, Morocco, and more. The... More
