I was there most recently on a Friday night and the line was wrapped around inside, but it moved quickly and everyone behind the counter was so friendly! A lot of people take their food to go, so we had no problem getting one of...More

Food was delicious and very fresh! The falafel was crisp and freshly fried, the meat was juicy and flavorful, and all the toppings were fresh tasting. There was little seating but well worth the trip. It was also extremely reasonably priced.

This place was fantastic! Great wraps of Lebanese/Greek/Mediterranean food! This chicken and sauces are awesome and this is some of the best falafel. In a nice easy store front on Thayer street. A great food to pick up and walk around Brown and College Hill.

This is authentic Greek wraps and such which are made fresh in a counter line. The service is quick and friendly. Expect a huge wrap for about $6-7. Even the wrap itself tastes fresh.

This place was great. The service was great, the food was terrific, and the prices were very reasonable. I've not been to many Greek restaurants but this was definitely the best. There is not much room for dining in so we walked down the street...More

Stopped here for lunch and was pleasantly greeted by a gentleman ready to design my personalized falafel sandwich. Think Qdoba -- where they give you the numerous toppings of your choice. Fast service with a smile. Delicious!! Good falafel is tough to find! One order...More

Went on a very busy rainy Saturday at lunch. Miracliously, a table opened up for us after we had been in, gave up, went across the street, and went back in again because we realized this was our best lunch option. My husband loved the...More

We were here twice over the weekend. My daughter loved the chicken Caesar pocket. I loved the falafel and grape leaves. The gyro was not the best I've had but good. There is a counter with chairs and booths in the back but most people...More
