Everything at Tangiers is perfect. The people that run this place are the most lovely (both personally and visually) family you’ll ever meet. The prepared foods are the finest of their kind in all the land; the falafel, the gyros, the tabouli, the hummus, the stuffed grape leaves, the baklava – oh dear sweet honey goodness – the baklava; all perfect. The “international” in their name is not just for show. The market carries olive oil from Lebanon, Halva from Israel, Feta cheese from Greece, dates from Jordan, sausage from Turkey, Crackers from Armenia, spices from India, spreads from Macedonia, cheese from Bulgaria, Couscous from Egypt. People become effusive when describing Tangiers.
They say things like “That gyro was off the hook,” “The pita was magical,” and “the beef, oh the beef, was so tasty, thin and lean.” Ok – that was all the same person (Kara S. via Yelp). But some other people said “I’ve eaten almost everything off the menu and have never been disappointed. In my opinion, they make the best falafel in CT.” said Kellly L. “The falafel and gyros are the best you’ll ever have,” said Juan P. “The falafel is the best I’ve ever had (and I’ve had Mahmoud’s in Manhattan),” said Richard M. “This place has the best falafel wraps in the country,” says Jasmine C. and “The pita was so warm and soft I could have cried. I sat alone at my desk with my eyes shut savoring every bite of this delicious thing,” said Kait F.
