My adult son and I went for lunch today. I didn't know what to expect. I just knew I liked gyros. Well, let me tell you, I was won over! I had the naan with shawarma and gyro meat, white taziki sauce, and all the garnish. It was absolutely amazing! We shared an order of hummus and pita. FANTASTIC! Warm... More

I never liked falafel until I tried it here. I always thought falafel was dry, tasteless, and not so pleasant to eat. But The Sultan's Kite proved me way wrong, as their falafel is crispy and moist at the same time, and has so much flavor! And I tried the gyro here and decided I will always come here for... More

We were passing through town and were so happy we found this jewel! Even though the restaurant was busy, the owner/manager greeted us warmly and offered some samples.The green taziki sauce was amazing. Both the Chicken Shawarma and the Chicken Tikka Korma were delicious!

First time here but I'll be back. The chicken shawauma was excellent and the portion generous. Can't wait to try the gyro.

Stopped for lunch while traveling through the area. Great food-lots of options to make your own perfect combo on a potato, wrap, rice or salad. Can mix up Kitta, falafel, schwarmaa or salad. Lots of sauce options. Great baklava! Awesome staff!

Amazingly fresh and tasty. I think the bread must have been made in house. The gyro tasted like fresh meat. The falafels were crisp and light and beautifully seasoned.

I'd never been to the Sultan's Kite, but I was taking someone out for a lunch meeting and asked them to pick a place. I was asked if I liked gyro's, which I do, so here's where we went. It's a humble place, without anything fancy about it, but the food tasted very fresh, the gyro was gigantic, and the... More

It was very crowded at lunch. There was no place for us to sit. So we were thinking carry out. However, they did have a back room that was empty. Lots of carry outs. Good place.

I have eaten here twice. Each time I have loved the food. This is definitely ethnic food, so if you do not want to try something new you might find it a challenge. The cooking style and flavors are different but if you want to tease your taste buds and try food similar to street food, I recommend Sultan's Kite.... More
