I happen to know a little about the family that has owned this place for years, since their children attended the school where I taught, and I can't say enough good things about them. Their level of friendly courtesy is exemplary, and reveals the care with which they were raised. As to the food, my title says it all: when... More

Tangiers offers premade items, to go items and groceries. I always take out of town guests to this fun spot, as I feel it is a most special place on the West Hartford/Hartford line!

Can't say enough about this business. Great staff and great food. You are always greeted with a smile, and you always leave satisfied. The gyros and baklava are my goto items, but the falafel is always a good backup plan. It's hard to find business owners who genuinely care about their customers, but these guys exemplify great customer service. I... More

We agree with the other reviews about the falafel - it was tasty and moist, and one of the best that we have had. The Mediterranean eggplant salad and the bean soup were also excellent, but the falafel was special. Note that TripAdvisor describes the restaurant as Lebanese, Mediterranean, Turkish, Greek, Middle Eastern, Israeli and the Tangiers website lists food... More

This is a grocery store with a sit down counter. Items are cooked on the grill in front of you. The boys are all very pleasant. We enjoy the falafels, hummus and gyros.

I just moved to the area recently and came here for my lunch break. The Falafel was incredible. We also got the chicken gyro and stuffed vegetarian grape leaves (also so so good.) Excellent, friendly service. Clean as a whistle. And shockingly low prices for the quality of food. This was my first time here but absolutely not my last.... More

The Falafel can't be beat. I always grab a container of hummus and some pita bread on the way out. The hummus is out of this world. Great mixed with a little ajvar. The guys that run the place are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. I've been going there for 20 years and I'm still impressed.
