"First-rate Middle Eastern fare is the game here: Crisp, hot falafel (spring for the deluxe and get fried potatoes and eggplant thrown in for good measure) and unbelievably savory lamb or chicken shawarma. The standard sides--tabbouleh, hummus, baba ghanoush--are good too, as is the potent, addictive yogurt-mint-garlic beverage."
- Seth Lorinczi

"This is the best falafel I've ever had!"... The shawarma left our other visitor speechless for a few minutes, "wow, yeah, this shawarma ... is amazing."

"Do you people not realize what a joyous bounty has been placed in our midst? As a former San Francisco Mission dweller, Truly Mediterranean once formed a core part of my diet, and when I moved to the Beast, it was a sad thing I had to leave behind. Now it has arrived, and it retains all the goodness of forbears. Their lamb shawerma (get it with hummus!) is *the bomb* - spicy tangy juicy flavorful."
- New Berkeley resident

"Truly Mediterranean's shawarma goes down solid, and you're not going to be hungry for a long, long time. Which is a good thing."
