I had hoped for a good greek or Mediterranean diner. It was a fast food place. The gyro didn't even have lamb. Had to go with chicken and it was dried out.

A casual restaurant with delicious Mediterranean food and friendly service. You order at the counter and the food is brought to your table.

Dined here on a weeknight around 5:45 and it wasn't busy. Enjoyed the spanakopita, baba ghanouj, and pistachio baklava but was disappointed with the bland hummus, tough lamb shawarma, and the chicken sauted in creamy garlic sauce.

The gyros are tasty, and the yogurt sauce is authentic--consistency of a pesto-- (not the runny white yogurt sauce you can get at chain places). Hope this place stays open and that people have an open mind to try delicious mediterranean foods such as these.

Full disclosure - I had the veggie combo platter (which may not have been their signature dish) but it was average at best. My friend has the vegetarian biryani which was also just so-so.

If you want something natural without that american pre-prepared sauce, arabians are a good alternative. In Kansas almost everything is too spicy and salty, but here the food is good and seems to be natural. Besides this, is cheap!!! Thanks god we found something healthy.
