A homey little spot fit for foodies at affordable prices. Very authentic Mediterranan cuisine - on the rotisserie are chicken and lamb to be sliced into shwarma. We had an excellent felafel salad - with tahini dressing. Very sweet proprietors, accommodated our late lunch arrival. Big, varied Menu looks fantastic and includes lots of tasty desserts (homemade baklava and many... More

I was in the area and really hungry. So I stopped by for some Chicken Shawarma plate. It wasn't bad but was far from the best also. They shawarma meat is served on top of rice. With hummus and a small salad on the side. You also get pita bread with it. The taste was ok but if you are... More

Had lunch here two days in a row. Couldn't believe I had missed this place before. It doesn't look like much from the street but the food is incredible. There weren't any lines or much place to sit if you wanted to, but the food is well worth it you did have to wait. The Gyro and the Shawarma were... More

First I'd like to say the family that owns this restaurant are super hospitable and hard working. They are always gracious and inviting...even if they're busy, they will let you know it might be a wait but I promise the food is worth it. I always end up getting everything on my plate from falafel, dolmas, chicken schwarma, baba ghanoush,... More

We waited a really long time..40 minutes for our food. My Falafel salad was delicious as was the hummus and Baba Ganoush.

Bunch of us from the office ate here after work on a Friday. The place is not big but good thing we had reservation, it was packed wall-to-wall. I noticed there were many take out order pickup, the locals must know it would be busy. The food selection is pretty good and the comments were good on taste from everyone... More

We were ordering to go, which was fortunate since the place was packed. It's not a large place. The wait was close to an hour, so we walked around the area and then waited a few final minutes before the food was ready. All of it was good, and there was some left for breakfast.

I got the pick 3 plate and wow it was good. Best fava bean dish in the area. Place is more of a quick stop place with mostly clean tables. No servers or busboys so you need to order from the counter. Very friendly group but could do more to brighten and clean the place up a bit. Otherwise totally... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant when looking for something unique in Burlingame. It has no curb appeal, but when we looked at the pictures of entrees on a clapboard in front of the restaurant we liked what we saw. We were the only ones there when we walked inside to order at the counter, however, as we ate our dinners,... More

Traveling throughout the US, I have my favorite destinations. When afforded the opportunity to visit the Bay Area, I also visit Taste In. Every time I visit I am reminded why I enjoy this wonderful restaurant. First, the FOOD; fresh & flavorful, I feel like I am doing something healthy. Second, the casual atmosphere, for me, is relaxing. Nidal, and... More
