“Ok cheap eats”
Reviewed 12 October 2011

Just had lunch there today. It was decent. I had the chicken souvalki which was a pita stuffed with grilled chicken, tzatziki and tomatoes. My husband had the falafel sandwich which was not that good. It tasted bitter (possibly from bad oil?) and so much sauce on it that the pita bread it was in fell apart completely. This place was ok, not horrible. Its cheap but not the best falafel I have had. This place does having a thriving to-go business so maybe that falafel was a bad batch or just an off day.

“Best cheap meal in Ashland”
Reviewed 13 February 2011

Hole-in-the-wall place with a few stools, a counter, and a busy staff, turning out tasty falafel, gyros, and other middle-eastern goodies. The shrimp-pesto pita is amazing, and the fries topped with feta-garlic are addictive. There's also chocolate-covered baklava. Everything tasted fresh and was prepared quickly. I've been there several times.
