I first discovered Gyro II after a Jethro Tull concert at Madison Square Garden in 1973. I was immediately taken by the tender lamb strips and the unique tasting sauce. Although I left New York for Arizona many years ago, I never miss a chance to visit Gyro II whenever I am back on the east coast. Amazingly, the gyros... More

Best Gryo in Manhattan! Nothing else compares. Delicious pita; fresh lettuce and tomatoe, and the sauce is very unique and the best sauce ever. A little on the sweet side, so some may not like it, but I do.

When I was 16, a friend said he was going to take me for a lamb dinner. At that time, I had no clue what a Gyro was. I fell in love with this place in the mid-70's and have been coming back ever since. Although I have left the NY area years ago, any trip I take up there,... More

The meat in the lamb gyro was superb. Makes a very hearty and delicious take away. Not too good for seating there as limited and simple.

Plentiful load on your plate however never tasted such appalling Donner meat ever and believe me I've eaten this all over the World particularly in Greece. It's clear the people who have this establishment have never been to the home country!!!

This place was one of the worst places I have ever eaten in. The gyros meat is a disgrace to the Greek nation it does not taste anything like it should. The service was poor the place was dirty the staff just did not seem to care just going though the motions. The dolmedos had no meat and were also... More

Quick dive in place for lunch/dinner in the heart of Times Square. I tried the chicken gyro for lunch. It came in a pita, with tomatoes and lettuce with lots of sauce. Had to use knife and fork. it was delicious and fresh. Will go back when i am in the area.

I went there on Sunday, July 24, 2016 and found a hair in my food. The manager was actually very rude and aggressive towards me and accused me of it being my own hair. The hair clearly was that of the men that worked there short, straight and black which was nothing like mine, but he still was awful. The... More

I've been coming here for more than 40 years and the Gyros are always the same - fresh, delicious, with a sauce that's to die for! Their portions are huge(especially the platters) and the meat is tender and delicious. Don't be deceived by its bland exterior; this is fast food at its finest! I've been to Greek festivals all over... More
