A coworker told me about this place. I ordered the gyro platter. It is so much food, and it is very reasonable. The yogurt sauce is excellent with a perfect amount of kick. The gyro meat was plentiful and perfectly seasoned and cooked. Chickpea side was excellent. The place is clean. I was very pleased. Try it for yourself.

Everything is fresh and the Gyro meat is perfectly seasoned. May get busy in the evening so plan accordingly. Super clean inside and the pictures of Afghanistan are fascinating. Worth a drive to get to.

Tasty kabobs! It's a small place. Staff is nice. The food takes time to be prepared but worth the wait.

Food is served on styrofoam plates with plastic ware. Drinks are bottles from a cooler. Service is 100% counter service. Food is prepared made... More

We picked up carryout - chicken and lamb kabobs and an order of Boolawnee. Everything was delicious - the meat grilled perfectly, choice of white or brown basmati, chickpeas and the wonderful yogurt sauce. Naan was perfect, could be a meal in itself. We will definitely go there again in the near future. Service was friendly as well.
