I ate there twice, it gets busy during the lunch hour. I had lamb gyro, with salad, pita and sauce. It was delicious and filling. Other time I had chicken fantastic, the taste was plain.

Everything is very fresh. To-go orders are always nicely packed and always ready at the right time. Large portions.

Chicken Fantastic, sanbusas and Somalian Tea are what makes this place wonderful. I prefer the location in Cedar Riverside because of the outdoor patio, but the St. Paul location has the same standard of preparation and taste. I have taken many a friend and family...More
