Had the chicken shawarma and chicken kebab sandwich here several times. Inconsistent taste - sometimes better than others. Small place and pick up is challenging due to lack of parking close by. Service is generally good.

The Chicken kebab sandwiches is pretty good. The chicken shawarma is average. The pita was ok. Quick service.

Great place with good fresh food. Best falafel in Jersey City. But overpriced. I guess it’s another restaurant in JC that thinks they are in mid town manhattan. Restaurants of the same type in Manhattan are much much cheaper.

Tiny place with just a couple of small tables but perfect for takeout. Counter service is efficient and pleasant. The hummus is excellent, as are the pita and chicken shawarma. Serving size is very generous. Prices are very good. Great lunch option.

This tiny place in Jersey City makes some great Mediterranean food and is a good option if you want to pick up food. The seating is very limited and cramped but not really bad for a quick bite. Dishes worth a mention are their veg...More

Moudy Razek was schooled in the culinary arts in London, Cairo, and the U.S., and has worked in, managed, and owned some of the finest restaurants across the world - The Rainbow Room in NYC, The Sphinx Grill in Amsterdam, Lantana Restaurant and Doc's Steakhouse right here in New Jersey. It was in these places that he learned to use the finest, freshest ingredients to create mouth-watering, delicious dishes designed to appeal to everyone from vegetarians to devout carnivores! Moudy's time spent abroad has infused his culinary creations with a unique European/Mediterranean flair that also displays more than a hint of Middle Eastern sensibility. Offering high-quality food at reasonable prices, The Gypsy Grill will likely become a favorite with your family or coworkers.
