Great place can't beat it. Don't let the shopping center fool you. They are nice people that make a great gyro... that chocolate pudding is outstanding too.

This was my favorite place to go eat when I was studying in SBU, they serve a lot of food and have a huge number of traditional turkish dishes. The Beyti special is my favorite!! Don't miss their red rice and lamb!!!
