The service is always friendly at Tareks, with Tarek himself usually being there to offer complimentary soup while you wait. They are quick to get your order done and it's always been good quality when I've visited, the Falafel are amazing and usually fried fresh....More

A co-worker of my Sweety's recommended Tarek's so she brought home a Half and Half for my enjoyment. It comprises half beef and half chicken shawarma with salad, rice and pita. It comes with two dips and is easily enough for two diners. So far...More

I ordered the vegetarian platter and it was delicious. It had 3 different cold items, and 3 different hot, plus falafel. The distinct tastes and individual effort that goes into each item is evident. No frills place and fabulous food!

This is a small, unpretentious, casual restaurant. Everyone gets a free sample of the soup of the day when they come in, from the friendly staff. Eat in or take out. I had an exceptionally good falafel, tangy and garlicky, just the way I like...More
