We stopped at the laundromat next door and chose Filfillah for lunch. The manager and employees were very welcoming. The lunch special, gyro sandwich on bread made in house, was huge and very good.

A winner every time. The Turkish bread and hummus are staples of our visits. Add in a Greek salad with fresh veggies, and the Filfillah platter. You've got a delectable feast for two. Don't leave without some baklava.

Really good food. Big portion sizes, freshly cooked and tasty. I recommend the iskandar as it has a tangy tomato sauce. Get the garlic sauce and other sauces as well. Load up on the Turkish bread.

I split a sampler platter and an appetizer with 2 friends. It was plenty of food for all and everything was delicious. The dining area is a bit cramped and the service was average, but the meal made up for inconveniences. Highly recommended

Walking in, we were greeted with the best smiles. Truly felt welcomed and were promptly seated. As new customers, we were glad to hear from the waiter, and the owner himself, their recommendations. We ordered the Filfillah platter. Simply amazing! The salad was crisp and...More
