I didn't expect much when we walked in; it looks like a typical college area fast food place. But we were pleasantly surprised by the flavor and portion of the food. I have eaten shwarma in many middle eastern restaurants and never had it with French fries as part of the shwarma, but it was delicious.

Stopped in for a beef and lamb gyro and a grilled chicken salad platter for my wife. The gyro meat is not hanging from a broiler -- they keep the meat in a steamer pot or something like that and then grill it. Makes for a very interesting, in a good way, taste. The grilled chicken had a nice brown... More

I have been here before, and loved my gyro every bit as much as on my first visit. For some reason, I can't get their College Rd. location brought up on this site, but it is absolutely worth a visit. One location is in the food court in Independence Mall. The other is located on College Rd, just down the... More

I love their lamb giros and the lamb or chicken shish Ka Bob's. They have tables inside and a couple outside. Great this time of year to be outside.

A great place to stop for lunch in the mall. The price is reasonable and the gyros and shawarma are very good.

We have a local business in the mall and this is literally the only place we eat. Fresh made authentic med. food. Smoothest best hummus ever. I cook this food at home on a regular basis and am a hummus and baba ghanoush eggplant fanatic...I can not get my hummus this smooth. The cassada platter is a new plate...very good.... More

The Falafel was the best in Wilmington. The lunch serving of a salad to go with the sandwich was a joke, it was a tiny portion, looking more like a garnish than a side salad. Its disappointing you can't get a decent plate of food, like a Falafel plate with a decent sized salad as a side dish.

Had a big order with a bunch of extras and inclusions/exclusions. They did a great job going over the entire order and then getting it absolutely right. Also - the food was awesome - fresh lamb and beef, hummus was excellent and falafels are not too soft. Super job

We stumbled upon this little gem by mistake, but I am so happy that we did. As we walked in, we were greeted by the friendliest welcome. The young man who served us was incredibly courteous, friendly and helpful. He guided us through the selections and then proceeded to cook our meal. My lamb gyro was delicious and very tasty,...
