My boyfriend and I so much wanted to eat at Circle of Friends because the menu looked amazing. However due to the solar eclipse on Monday, April 8th, the restaurant was packed and there was no seating available. It was also a long wait for...carry out so we opted to get the masala chai. It was well worth the wait. Outstanding masala chai made with tasty Indian spices. It was the perfect tea for a long journey back home. The atmosphere at Circle of Friends is lovely and the staff is top notch. They really care about their customers. As I waited for my masala chai I observed all the mouth-watering dishes that customers were eating at their tables. My only regret is that we didn't get carry out. The wait would have been worth it. The menu is diverse and everything appears to me made from scratch.More

Booked for Valentine Day meal with my wife. Spent an hour waiting with nothing more than a glass of water. Busy evening but huge issues. Left after an hour of waiting. Very disappointed with one of our usually favorite places. Sad to see issues. Cannot...comment on the food didn't get any.More

Both of us thought our food was excellent, as was the service. Nice, clean, interesting, smaller interior. Refreshing compared to the large chains. Server told us she had just made the flan. Not the typically portion Americans may expect, but it was perfect. Probably the...best I've had in the US. To top of the great meal, the bill was very reasonable.More

I had never been here. The place is beautifully decorated and immaculate. We were brought hot tea and ice water. We decided to get the large platter with foods from the Middle East, Nepal, India, and Viet Nam. The service was perfect, and we had...a wonderful time. We will definitely return.More

I've been craving Moussaka and noticed it on their online menu. It was completely different than any version of moussaka I've ever had, but it was amazing. The eggplant was perfectly seasoned and sautéed, as was the chicken. It was paired with a large serving...of rice. I will definitely eat here again, there are so many dishes to try. I'm not a big curry fan, but the chicken biryani my friend got was delicious, not overly seasoned and also a huge portion. Our server was very nice as well.More

What a lovely little place! Wonderful decor. Home like feeling. Cuisine very very diverse. Owner is friendly and involved and has extensive knowledge about various cuisines. They serve HALAL meats; which is wonderful to have even in a small town.

During COVID, our small family group in town for a wedding decided to drop in. We were greeted by a lovely lady who found room for us away from others, and made suggestions from the menu. Coming from Savannah, we're pretty spoiled with good food...options; but very much enjoyed the hospitality, and tasty and exotic variety we enjoyed here. Huge trays (Around the World Platter) of marvelous food were handed about, shared, compared, and discussed. When the server found two of our party were getting married the next day, she brought out complimentary desser trays and....Sprite to toast their futures. The food was so good my husband and I returned the next day to try some additional dishes. Altogether a delightful place, I think the total wound up $10-15 per person, VERY reasonable, and we left with doggie bags. I'll be back if I'm ever in that area again.More

Can't wait to get back. Food was very good and flavorful. The Tour of the world was more than enough for 2 people and very reasonably priced. A hidden little gem.

Ordered the around the world for two with chicken meat, a small fatoosh salad and a small lentil soup. Around the world comes with the chicken mandi, potato and chicken curry, fried rice, dal from Bangladesh, hummus, Filipino pancit, Greek gyro, Vietnamese stir fry. The...hummus tastes good, nice and lemony, it was fresh and flavorful. It’s not as smooth but it’s an intense lemon punch and good. The lentil soup is runny, lentils are crushed blended down, it’s lemony and the cilantro gives it a nice fresh taste. The small salad is small, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes and onions, it was much smaller than was let on by the waitress, but sufficient enough. The chicken mandi and mandi sauce were okay, the mandi sauce is quite sour and bitter, made me scrunch up on its own. The chicken wasn’t bad, small but tastes okay on its own. Greek gyro was okay, a bit dry but okay for what it was. The pancit wasn’t bad either, nice amount of veggies and had good flavors. The Vietnamese fried veggies was my favorite, lots of intense flavors and some good kick to it too. The chicken and curry were also quite yummy. The owner came out and greeted all of the guests and made sure everyone was satisfied with their meal. She is super friendly and amiable. The rest of the staff are friendly and attentive too. The food here is intriguing, complex and tantalizing intense. I would recommend their around the world.More

We ordered the "Tour of the World" selection from the menu and were very happy with our choice. A large platter with a variety of tasty dishes from all over the world. The meats were so tender you could eat them off the bone with...a fork. They don't serve alcohol and do allow you to bring your own; they even provided the glasses for our wine.More
