I started ordering every Friday for my family, and I tried all off their sandwiches. The taste is definitely there and the prices are affordable. For the quality of their food, I'd even say the prices are very good. I tried mixed sandwiches, falafel, chicken,...lamb, kofta sandwiches; and baklava. I was not disappointed.More

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.

I tried the Middle Eastern food at this restaurant and asked falafel and shawarma to eat delicious and good. The restaurant is small. The best outside request is good experience and the food is good. The staff are good and friendly. The restaurant needs a...little attention in terms of cleanliness and hygiene but good for the few East European restaurants in this area, especially the tasteMore

A pita sandwich at gypsy is not only the best felafel/Schwarma in the area, but also could be the best sandwich in downtown JC. Prices are reasonable, wait time is minimal, and the staff is super friendly. I’m not from the Middle East, but it...seems to be a hit with those from that area. So you know it hits close to home.More

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.

So happy that the shawarma and hummus both impressed! It's great that the serving size was what you were looking for, too. Hope we get to serve you lunch again sometime soon! Best, Moudy Razek, Owner

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...and non-veg sandwiches, boxes, baba ganoush and the sweet dishes. What we tried and would not opt for again are the veg box (much too dry) and the koshary (special item, available only on Saturdays). The place is open till ten and the staff has been sweet enough to hold on to our pick-up order till 20-25 minutes after closing time.More
