I waited 30 minutes for my Gyros. They weren't even all that busy. After 30 minutes, I asked about it, they said "its coming". I waited another 5 min and left empty handed. I was late and didn't have time to spend getting a refund. Of course I won't be back..

I love falafels and this place, though small offered some great dishes including a yummy falafel plate. For a vegetarian, it was nice to find this just across the road from the Santa Clara Marriott where we were staying. Great service as well

Have had lots of middle eastern food but never Turkish before. Was very interesting and different tasting. Plan on spending about $20 per person [in 2016].

Went here after reading great reviews about it. Had the falafel great value meal, the gyro, chicken sandwich, and cheeseburger for the four of us. Initially, my daughter and I were supposed to share the falafel..well, yeah that didn't happen because is was so good. The banana shake tasted fresh. The gyro was also excellent.

We had the lamb and beef wraps and the tasty d- dessert (honey-cheese-crunchy wheat threads) . Everything was fresh, very tasty and seemed to be made right at the cafe. We want to come back!!
