We come here alot as a family. Something for everyone. They use quality ingredients; I like the Afghani-American owner; and the kids leave happy. The salads are really great, as are the soups. In the summer, it's nice to sit outside along Grand Avenue. I do wish -- after many years of asking -- that they would listen to my... More

Although this is a small restaurant where you order at the counter and they bring you your food, I was quite surprised at how efficient the process is. I ordered the lamb kebab and my friend had the gyro plate. We each received a very delicious green salad prior to our meal. When the meal arrived, they were both hot... More

It wasn't what we were expecting. I was meeting some friends and none of us had ever been there. Came highly recommended so we decided to go there. We expected a traditional sit-down-and-order-your-food place. Nope. You stand in line and order. It is brought to your table, though. And we were fortunate to get a table outside. The food was...

Called ahead with big order. All the food tasted great! Sishwich was surprising good with goat cheese. All the wraps were enormous! Wanted to get cake after we paid for our take-out. Kid behind counter acted like he never saw a knife or cake before.

Call ahead and 15 minutes later you have a healthy unusually tasting meal ready to enjoy. So much better that a sub or a pizza and so much more interesting flavors. Always a line to order so calling ahead is the ticket. Friends of ours do the take out thing 3 times a week but we will hit it a... More

Great spot..great gyros, great salads, fast service, reasonable prices. The desserts are amazing, the hours that they are open are extensive. Just visiting the area and already have eaten there 4 times..all of them great.

Tables were not cleaned, order was messed up, chicken kebab was not cooked through, and customer service was rude. We will not be coming back.

We are at shush twice once for breakfast and again for lunch. Some of the best tasting food I ever had. Their humus and falafel was fabulous. My wife who is a vegetarian was in heaven. I tried their lamb bacon and it was better then real bacon. The owner Leo came over to see if we needed anything .... More
