Family-run restaurant. Cheap and delicious Middle Eastern/Mediterranean/Lebanese cuisine. Authentic falafal, schwarma, wraps, kabobs, spanakopita (spinach pie), souvlaki, lentil soup, plus much more, always with a smile.
I have eaten here for lunch several times and enjoy their chicken shwarma plate; I believe its called the Mediterranean plate. It is served with choice of Greek salad or Tabbouleh, Greek potatoes, rice, hummus, pita and a dolmathes. They will give you some hot sauce on the side which I strongly recommend. For under $10, this is a steal for the sheer quantity and quality of the food.
The other item I like is their chicken wrap which is about $6 and also a good deal. I usually get double meat which obviously costs extra but is worth the money.
The staff is super friendly and they will prepare your food fast and fresh. Avoid going at peak times during the business lunch rush because it can be lined up out the door. Closes early (6pm?) so if you want an early dinner or pre-dinner snack, get here before they shut their doors! Definitely recommended.
I have to admit that I can be a picky eater when it comes to pitas or falafel wraps. After trying this place out, this place blows all other wrap places out of the water. It is a family run business and even though they get bombarded with customers, they are always pleasant. They make everything fresh and tasty for you and the price is very reasonable. I did have fries there before and they were really good too...moist inside and crispy on the outside ( transparent ). Try out this place, you won't regret it.
Love this place. Eat there on average 2 times per week. The food is very tasty. My favourites are: the falafal wrap (approx. $5) (with so many other goodies wrapped inside), vegetarian plate (approx. $9) (spanakopita, delicious rice, greek-style potatos, greek salad or tabouleh (parsley salad), 2 falafal, dalmadas, and sauces: humus (chick pea & garlic) , tahini (sesame), & tzatsiki (cucumber & yoghurt), and the mixed souvlaki (approx. $10) (rice, potatoes, choice of salad, skewer of chicken (marinated in some tasty spices and is as tender as can be), skewer of lamb and humous.
Both the vegetarian plate and mixed souvlaki are so large that I usually can't finish them. Talk about a deal: delicious food for cheap. The place is always packed with usually a big lunch line-up. And when an ethnic restaurant is packed with people of that ethnicity you know it's good! So busy that you end up sharing table space. But the food is so good that no one ever minds. Can take a while to get your food, so if you're in a hurry, be there before 11:40 or order ahead and take your meal to go.
Service is always with a "hello [insert name here]" and a smile. Love that it's family-run. Mom's on the register, Dad's on the grill, daughter does the salads and wraps. Another daughter (I think?) is on clean-up detail. Even Grandpa is there busily doing meal-prep.
The ambiance is very typical of what you'd find in the middle-east. Cafe-style set-up and regional art & nicknacks. It wouldn't be authentic any other way.
