Very casual, clean and comfortable place. Authentic, fresh, middle eastern food. Retail Selections - olive oil, halva, grape leaves, Tahini, etc. & great prices. Friday mornings I go early for the zaatar pita and spinach pies from Sami’s Bakery in Tampa - good as you can get!
The best falafel pita on earth!
Amazing food - great hummus. Good amount of food at an excellent price.
Great spot for an awesome gyro! Quick service, inexpensive, and friendly staff. Small selection of imported groceries. Falafel and hummus are excellent.

This place has been a favorite of mine for over 10 years. The quality of the food is great! You order at the counter and they will bring it out to your table, but calling in take-out is a great option here. There is typically a decent sized lunch rush, but in general, the wait times are reasonable. Along with the food, there is a moderate assortment of middle eastern grocery items such as spices, pita bread, and many things hard to find elsewhere.My personal favorite is the Shwarma Pita, but I have enjoyed everything I have had there.

Love this place! The food is amazing! This is one of the top places I miss dearly since moving but I come here every time I'm in town. I highly recommend this place if your looking for this type of true authentic food!

Wow, we have lived here all of our lives and never been here. What a shame! The food here is absolutely amazing, I can't believe this place has been here for so long! We will for sure continue to come back and tell all of our friends about it. It's a very clean environment and the food taste authentic.
The portions are amazing and pricing is fair for what you get! I highly recommend the Athenian GYRO. It was incredible as well as the Sahara salad!
l love sahara so, so, so much. I've had falafel all over the world and this is still my favorite falafel EVER. Great vegan and vegetarian options-- go for the falafel wrap with hummus for something if youre not starving. Foul Moudumas wrap is also very very tasty! If you're looking for a full meal, the vegetarian sampler platter with baba Ganouj and tabbouleh is DIVINE. I believe their falafel is Lebanese style (my fave tbh),my god it's so, so good. I can't count then number of times I've stopped to grab a bite here- honestly whenever I'm in the area and get a chance to. The service is quick and it's a no-frills place. Call in advance to get an order to go, but know that during lunch hours this place gets pretty busy. It's a locals spot-- if you know, you know!!

The food is genuine, fresh and well executed.
This is as close as you can get in the US to genuine Mediterranean food.
The portions are generous and the prices are very reasonable.
This was a breath of fresh air in a confusing dining seen where quality and price do not necessarily match.

This place always delivers, delicious food every time. They have a solid vegetarian menu and their falafel is so good it makes me cry.
Delicious! Best falafel that I've had in years! Everything was delicious and fresh. You order at the counter and then they bring food to your table. I think this may be a new favorite lunch place. They also have a small selection of Middle Eastern groceries so now I know where to buy rosewater, sumac and other items to make some of my own dishes!
