Stopped by this place on my way to Columbus Circle because I like middle eastern food in general. I would not go here again. Food was just ok. There was nothing special about it. The place is really small and looked like a sandwich shop...More

Amazing dinner! Loved the grape leaves and bread stuffed with goat cheese. Service was prompt and courteous. They don't take Amex.

From the outside, this looks like a worn-out diner. Don't be fooled - the place is tiny, but the food is outstanding. My husband and I split the bureka (the special flaky bread filled with cheese and spinach), and we made sure we didn't finish...More

Gazala's is a small cafe in New York's Hell's Kitchen named after chef Halabi Gazala. This original Gazala's is the city's first Druze restaurant, cooking the food of a religious minority that lives in Israel and other Middle Eastern countries. One of the great features...More

Gazala is the owner of Gazala's Place, which has a down-home, homemade atmosphere that many restaurants strive for. Gazala's heritage is Druze--a Middle Eastern ethnoreligious group about which I admittedly know little--and the restaurant is marketed as a Druze restaurant. But the food. Freshly made...More
