Every time we're in Raleigh we have to come here at least once. My daughter always gets the Lamb Kabob and I get the Chicken Kabob. Oh and don't leave here without trying their baklava.

Large portions and flavorful. The tabbouleh was awesome. Good, tender meat and the service is quick. Makes an excellent take out to go back to your hotel and eat.

This place may be small (no indoor seating, but some limited outdoor seating in a food court type of area is available) but they provide some outstanding fast-food kabobs and some excellent sides. I particularly love their beef kabobs, flatbread, rice, Greek salad and pasta....More
