Gem tucked in small space. Good food at a reasonable price ! Nice variety -- items served on paper plates/tin foil. Tough to eat in house -- not many tables.

Stopped in for lunch and had the Doner. Essentially a Turkish Gyro. The pita was fresh, the lamb and beef tender, and the rice excellent. Intend to return and explore the rest of the menu!
