I've heard a bit about Azuri Cafe. It's pretty decent, but nowhere near the best. The famed falafel isn't anything special, especially when you opt for the pita sandwich where you only get 3 pieces. Additionally, as compared to other competitors, $8.50 is a tad...More

I had the Falafel and the Chicken Shawarma, one of the best meals I ever had! Although, very limited seating.
