Many Mediterranean options for sandwiches, plates, and pizza (ok not Turkish but looked good). The falafel pita was good; perfectly cooked with fresh veggies; a bit less seasoned than I would prefer. Service and atmosphere were pleasant and service was lightening fast. Watch the hours as many Fairfield restaurants close for the mid-afternoon.

My father and I have had lunch here a few times and each time the food was hot and fresh. The place isn't too fancy but the atmosphere is warm and inviting. I had the gyro wrap and fries it was pretty filling, though never having tried another gyro, I have nothing to compare it to. Still with that being... More

I usually eat meat at dinner but had the Vegetarian Combo plate with Hummus, Baba Ganoush, pita, falafel, Kisir and organic tahini sauce. Soo good! The waitress was really friendly and helpful. I travel on business all the time and love finding such a friedly palce!

I have been here many times and I have always enjoyed the food. The staff is pleasant and friendly. There is a sign stating absolutely no outside food or drink and I walked in with a cup of water. When the server came to take my order and saw the outside cup, I quickly explained that I was on foot,... More

I love this place and eat here for lunch every couple of weeks. The vegetarian options are great! I also recommend the Shrimp shish kebabs, as they are yummy!

An interesting twist on Turkish American diner food. I have no complaints it is simply the title of the review. It's not 4 or 5 star restaurant it's a small restaurant and I left feeling satisfied. My Gyro was good, not as good as in the Greek Islands but being land locked in Iowa it made me smile and tasted... More

Real Turkish food prepared by authentic Turkish cook and served by his wife. Really good kabobs, hummous, falafel, jasmine rice, and lentil soup. No waiting for a table and prompt service with a smile. Even the Italian stromboli and pizza is good.

I live in Australia and every time (typically annually) I visit Fairfield I have to eat at least one meal here. The food is superb and you can either choose a middle eastern cuisine or typical American - or a combination of both. Very clean and friendly. I will be back.
