Perfect for hungry people, vegan friendly, on the pricier side though. The service is fast and one can tell that they serve a lot of people during their shift.

Excellent for salads and grilled fish or meat. They provide an amazing bunch of salads, lemonade and tea or coffee included in the price of your meat.

The restaurant was very crude and the meat was cold and not impressive. The salads were good however you got the feeling that you must eat fast and go because other people are waiting in line.

Terrible food, service even worse. I had been here with my daughter three years ago and really liked it. Now I agree with some of the other poor reviews. I passed by on Christmas Eve and stopped in. A waiter slapped down six small prepared...More

many of the salads, meat and fish do not contain gluten. avoid the pita and the sweets and you should be OK.
