Albuquerque: Yanni's has disappeared from Central~!

Has Yanni's moved? If out of business, could you please recommend another gyro/kabob middle eastern restaruant? We have tried Istanbul, but were not pleased.
Thanking you in advance.

  1. There are several places, albeit a bit more down-market than Yanni's, that have good gyros and other Greek treats: Cesar's (24 hr drive through) on San Matreo & Lomas and also and also the Olympia Cafe on Central in the UNM area Good luck!

    1. We like Zorba's at Juan Tabo and Montgomery (next to Sunflower Market), but I think Yanni's is still there. At least the last time I was in Nob Hill it was there.

      1. Not true that Yanni's has disappeared. We were there for dinner last night. Agree with LJRabq1 that Yanni's is a bit more upscale with more varied fare than the average gyro/kebab middle east restaurant. Sahara on central (for one) makes good gyros and kebabs.

        1. Thanks for the tips. I've never tried Sahara and Zorba's Hollyway name has kept me away. Olympia has changed ownership and , I feel, has gone down hill. I'm a kabob junky and have eaten them on 4 continents. They are even harder to find in Maine, my other stopmping ground.

            Have you been to Pars Cuisine? I've never had the kebabs there, but some of their other stuff is very good.
