We visited this place because of reviews. Food was bland and average. They did give sachets of chilli sauce but this was very spicy. Overall disappointed. Greasy substandard food.

Sadly we don't have gyro carts in London so we make the most of them whilst in New York. The gyros are fresh and very tasty, prices are reasonable and the sauces are lush.
