From the outside, this looks like a worn-out diner. Don't be fooled - the place is tiny, but the food is outstanding. My husband and I split the bureka (the special flaky bread filled with cheese and spinach), and we made sure we didn't finish...More

This place deserves more stars than it's got. The food is delicious and relatively cheap. We've been to the restaurant once and ordered take out another time, and both times we weren't disappointed. Falafel wrap is highly recommended. Halabi Kabab was tasty. The mixed kabab...More

Gazala's is a small cafe in New York's Hell's Kitchen named after chef Halabi Gazala. This original Gazala's is the city's first Druze restaurant, cooking the food of a religious minority that lives in Israel and other Middle Eastern countries. One of the great features...More

Gazala is the owner of Gazala's Place, which has a down-home, homemade atmosphere that many restaurants strive for. Gazala's heritage is Druze--a Middle Eastern ethnoreligious group about which I admittedly know little--and the restaurant is marketed as a Druze restaurant. But the food. Freshly made...More

Gazala's Place: Huge disappointment! A self admitted foodie, I was so excited to find a small, fun, different type of dining experience. After all, if you’re in NYC, experience it to the MAX! Dinner for four—wife and two adult children who eat and love anything,...More

Small neighborhood restaurant with sandwiches on handmade rolls and delicious lunch specials. Very authentic middle eastern food and handmade pita. Good for vegetarians, flexitarians and carnivores. View of kitchen chefs where I met a friendly woman making homemade stuffed grape leaves. Easy, accessible midtown location.
