Named one of the nicest places in the world...great addition to the community of Knoxville both for their general contributes and, more importantly, for their incredible food. The falafel is great. Highly recommend

I have nothing but great things to say about this place. Food was tasty and reasonably priced and the environment was welcoming. I have visited both locations in knoxville and the service is equally as good.

We like the pita sandwiches, plates, and salads. The service is friendly. It is located near Market Square in Knoxville's downtown.

We stopped here for a quick bite while on a road trip. I had the Falafel Salad and my husband had the Gyro Salad and Babaganoush. Everything was delicious and just perfect. Definitely recommend.
