We are Ayola, serving the city’s very best Greek and Mediterranean cuisine. Conveniently located in the central neighborhood that is Chinatown, we serve delicacies such as our to-die-for Gyros that can give average sandwich shops a run for their money.
Beyond the over-stuffed Gyros, Ayola serves a plethora of Mediterranean-sourced dishes such as Falafel, Chicken Shawarma, Hortopita, Greek Salad, Troy Salad, Sparta Salad and amazing Combo Platters for those who want to try a bit of everything. Our food is described by regulars and newcomers alike as delicious and fresh. Our tender lamb and beef is delicately stuffed between our genuine thick, cushiony pita…finished off by a creamy, dreamy tzatziki sauce and fresh lettuce shreddings to make the ultimate Gyro experience. Not just that, these piping hot treasures can be ordered off our menu as a “value meal” with fries and a soft drink for a money-saving one-two punch! You are guaranteed to find flavorful food at a great value.
If you’re in a hurry and stop in for a quick takeout lunch, Ayola has you covered there as well – with fast-moving lines kept always in motion courtesy of our expert staff and service, you’ll be guaranteed to make the most of your coveted lunch hour. But if you’re looking for a more relaxed and paced sit-down experience, our charming little Mediterranean eatery boasts adequate seating with a cozy upstairs dining area…perfect for getting completely engrossed in the genuine Ayola atmosphere.
From delicious Shawarmas stuffed with all kinds of meats and veggies to homemade desserts like scrumptious Baklava – all served with warm and hospitable staff that truly makes you feel like family – Ayola of San Francisco is a true culinary gem tucked away in the epicenter of San Francisco. Our goal is to cook up fresh food with no frills, just flavor. We look forward to serving you soon!
