A new Mediterranean restaurant has arrived in the FoHi neighborhood. Located at 70-35 Austin St. in Forest Hills, OBA Mediterranean Gyro & Grill is serving chicken and lamb gyros, baba ghanoush, hummus and falafels.

Greg P., who tried the restaurant during its opening week, raved about his dining experience on the online review forum, Yelp.
"The food is outstanding. The fresh bread was warm, soft and delicious — the perfect start to the meal. The real highlight is the meat. We shared the chicken kebab and lamb kebab. Both were moist, well-seasoned and tasty. The prices are very reasonable compared to other Mediterranean options in the neighborhood. I was also impressed by the service. It was only their first or second day open, and it was clear that the owners know how to run a restaurant operation. I've worked in the area for several years and am thrilled to have another healthy and delicious lunch option," he wrote.
After dining at the family-friendly restaurant, Irene R. wrote: "This place was excellent from beginning to end. They were very accommodating to our son with multiple food allergies. They gave us complimentary dessert after our meal, which was awesome. We had a great experience. We will definitely be back."
OBA Mediterranean Gyro & Grill is open from 11am-11pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday and 11am-1am Thursday-Saturday.
