I popped in for lunch after the suggestion from my sister. You see, I live in Taipei and falafels over there are just not a possibility. But this place? The best I have ever had and I try them whenever I can find them. The ingredients are fresh, the portions are a great value and the taste? Delicious. Full stop.... More

We ran across this by accident, the line outside will tell you how great it is. Great food, very reasonably priced and we refer many friends to this location.

When you see this for the first time you are not "too sure" if this is going to be any good. But don't worry the food is great and fantastic value. You place your order first and pay and then get your receipt to order your food, there are two areas, one for the vegetarian side and one for meat.... More

The food is fantastic. There's almost always a line because this place is always buzzing. It's always buzzing because the food is great and the prices are very good. Really good value. The bread here is probably the best pita you'll get anywhere up or down the peninsula. It's a real highlight.

Always quality food and great customer service. The meat and the vegetarian dishes are both good decisions. Lunchtime weekdays and weekends are busy. Plan around those times. Small parking lot. A nice choice for something fast but never disappointed.

I came back from Berlin recently where I got used to getting Donner kebabs. This place totally reminded me of Berlin. A little bit of a Chios during that weekend. There are 3 lines: one for orders and two for pick ups. If they place a sign as to where to stand, they become for efficient. I also like how... More
