This place was recommended by a good friend, so I was craving a Greek salad. My husband and I drove across town to try this place out. We ordered our food for takeout, got home, poured my dressing on salad and mixed it up to discover that it was a disgusting generic ranch. Totally ruined the salad. My husband called the restaurant and spoke to owner to complain, he didn't even offer to replace meal. I won't go back there again.

I have spent a lot of time in the middle-east and the food here is the real deal. The owners are proud of the food they serve and want you to come back. The building’s inside and outside are not the most pleasant of view, but the food is the true star here.

Being new to Savannah I was told by many that THIS was the place to go for great middle eastern food. The owners are delightful and engaging. I ordered my curried chicken wrap/Gyro to go as I only live 3 blocks away. I got into my truck.....took 1 bite and drove off. As soon as I realized how AMAZINGLY delicious it was......I pulled over and finished it. I couldn't even go the few blocks to my place. It was THAT good. Don't pass up this great secret gem. It doesn't look like much from the outside.....nor the inside (very small and just a few tables) but the food is the best I've had.

Get the lamb and avoid the chicken. If authenticity is important to you, don't bother. The entire place could use a good cleaning.

The chicken gyro was dry and flavorless, and came with a sad side of crinkle fries and a can of soda. The pita was stale and store bought. Earlier reviews' praises of the food's freshness were contradicted by the giant cans of eggplant and chickpeas. Merchandise available for purchase included a bag of halal marshmallows that were brown and crunchy from too much shelf time.

The lamb was delicious. Seared crunch, nicely seasoned, and moist.

No shawarma or doner. So much for authenticity.
