I absolutely love this place. I come here at least once every year when I visit Tempe! Not only do they have great food, but they also have a neat little market attached to it. Lots of options on the menu, all tasty, and all quite affordable.

We stopped in for lunch after walking by the day before. The staff was friendly and the food was quick to our table. OMG it was amazing. We ordered both a gyros plate and the gyros combo. Everything was above and beyond good. The hummus, tabouli, pickles and greek fries were great. The gyros, tzatziki, and pita were out of... More

One of the best Mediterranean (Tunisian) restaurants in Arizona. You need to try the shishkafta "sandwich". It's fantastic! But all of their food is great

Friendly service, perfect gyro. Large serving, loaded with perfect lamb, a little crispy on the outside, moist and tender on the inside. Came with a good amount of tziki, topped with lettuce and tomato. A lot of gyro's seem to come with extra stuff that I'm not really looking for. This had everything I need, nothing I dont.

Located on/next to the ASU campus, this spot hits the mark for Middle Eastern/Mediterranean food. The food, while prepared by Hispanic kitchen staff, certainly has the flavor of Middle Eastern fare. I had the Phoenician Combo, which for the price represented a good value, given the portion of food received. It was tasty, and the garlic sauce (house made), was... More

Very good service. Generous portions. With a grocery store and bakery in-situ, excellent options for baklava, samosas, juices, etc.

This is a nice little cafe near the campus. So it will have the trendy prices. The food is good, but not great. You do get big portions, and you shouldn't be hungry afterwards.

Good service...and quick made to order food. There is a mini mart in the place, so may be a good idea to select your drink from there and add it to the meal....more choices!

Traditional Greek/Mid East mixes with new in a nice but no frills and casual setting. The Greek fries are simple, but great. A must get. They're fries smothered in a delicious creamy white sauce and crumbled feta. It may not sound like much but the fries are warm and golden and they don't skimp on the topping. Trust me, from... More
