Soup is phenomenal. Served with homemade bread that also pairs well.
Feeling hungry? Try a kebab plate (Lamb is the best)! Two kebabs, rice pilaf, side salad, pickled cabbage, cous cous, and free bread. OM NOM NOM!
Try not to ask for a recommendation. They recommend everything and then get confused when I order it because they don't speak English.
If u are new to Greek food, try the Appetizer Sampler & Kebab Speciality Platter - very reasonably priced (about $10+) & good portion!
Don't be put off by the modest interior, you'll find few places this side of the Bosphorus that do a better kebab.
Rice and Chicken Kabob. San Francisco Public Library Main Branch across the street from here.
Inexpensive, clean flavors, and filling: it's great for a quick, simple meal.
The Bubul Yuvsasi are addicting. Ask for hot sauce on the side for the boreks.
If you want only a gyro be careful not to order complete meal by the same name.
When you want quick, hearty, freshly made food, stop by Gyro King. The family have several restaurants in San Francisco, but this is the first one. The space is open and the service courteous. Do not expect table cloths and fancy silverware, but if you need a healthy quick bite while visiting the Civic Center, this is the place for you. I usually get the salmon special plate which comes with a huge piece of salmon cooked just right, stewed carrots and potatoes, rice, green salad, and pickled cabbage. This plate lunch comes with their house homemade bread which reminds me of a less oily focaccia. I have eaten their delicious house chicken salad which also comes with their house bread. When you go, remember to go early before noon or later after 1pm to avoid the crowd and get a table. Enjoy!
