If you want a good shawerma roll just like a real arabic shawerma.. this is the best in boston We always order a chicken shawerma roll up with garlic, lettuce, tomatoes, Pickles and French fries.. Their katayef is amaaazing but they only serve it in ramadan

Perfect for a quick lunch - the food is super fresh, regular (normal) portions and absolutely delicious. You definitely do need to know what you want, as you're waiting in line -- this guy can give the soup nazi a run for his money. The tabbouleh was amazing. But - I loved it - it's worth it. There are some... More

This is a order at the counter and take food to go or sit type of restaurant, no table service. Once you get to the counter it will be a quick process, the food is prepared, and the meat is cooking on the rotisserie so your order will be processed fast. However be prepared to wait a short bit in... More

The food was alright. They had a nice variety of sides and a few meat options, as I expected going in. They gave a lot more hummus/baba ganoush than I had enough pita for and I'm not a fan of putting it on the meat so consider ordering an extra pita. The rice and meat were a little more sour... More

Great falafel & hummus but not a great variety. The price is very good. I was in the mood for a falafel pita roll-up so if you are too then this is the place. Many natives so you know the food is good & authentic. Try it!

It wasn't cleaf from the other reviews I read that this is essentially a fast food outlet. It's counter service and the seating area's not that comfortable. The food was OK.

For those not in the know (like me before I went there): aceituna == olive (in Spanish) This is a good value Mediterranean restaurant. Don't come here for a quiet lunch. You've got lots of people from the surrounding office buildings getting good, reasonably priced food in a fairly quick (would be quicker without the long lines) time. They do... More

Don't be scared away by the long lines to order lunch. They are very efficient and the many regulars order quickly. The spicy chicken shawarma rollup or Greek salad topped with spicy chicken were amazingly good. Excellent grape leaves too. I wasn't a huge fan of the falafel which seemed a bit dry, but the tabbouleh salad was delicious, as... More
