Our Story

Located steps from BART, in the heart of the Civic Center, Gyro King is the perfect spot to have a great lunch or dinner, quick take out, or a delicious bite before a show at the Orpheum, Opera or Symphony.

Owned and operated by veteran restaurateurs Welat Yuksel and Nuri Citaci, this casual Mediterranean café re-defines it’s blended Mediterranean cuisine with beautifully executed dishes that feature fresh ingredients that are sourced and made daily, such as charcoal grilled eggplant salad, hummus and tabbouleh, house made bread and pastry, silky red lentil soup, fresh wraps with lamb, chicken, beef and vegetables or special plates of succulent gyro and kebabs delicately seasoned with hints of garlic, lemon and oregano, served with rice, salad and house made tzatziki sauce. Finish your meal or enjoy it all by itself-- a fresh dessert made by in-house pastry chef, Mrs. Firdevs Dogan, like kadayif, shredded filo stuffed with walnuts or pistachios, creamy sultan rice pudding and classic baklava, to name a few. We invite you to visit this warm and welcoming café and delight your palate!
