Quick reviews of ethnic cuisines you can experience for less than $25 a person, tax and tip included.

One of the area’s great sandwiches—a gyro stuffed with spit-roasted pork, fries, tomatoes, and tzatziki—can be found at this lively, mural-painted dining room. It’s a meal in itself, but it’d be a shame to miss the kitchen’s excellent dips, which range from whipped taramasalata to tyrokafteri, a melding of feta with spicy and sweet peppers.
