If you like gyros, this is an ideal restaurant. Over the years, I have eaten here many times, and I have always had a positive experience. The food is fresh, tasty, and healthy. The staff is always pleasant and helpful.

I love this place! The food is authentic. The homemade hummus is amazing, as is the baklava. The skewers and sandwiches of any type of meat are tender and delicious.

This is one of our favorite places to eat, the food is always GREAT. We had chicken Shawarma ,gyro with lemon bar and the best German Chocolate Cake I have ever eaten. This restaurant is a must visit if you come to St. Paul.

Hearty avocado salad and a delicious vegetarian green curry - perfect amount of heat for a filling take-home dinner at a fair price. The deep fried calamari with cooking yogurt dip is a must-start!
