“In a family-owned business it’s very difficult to prove yourself,” Moe Norouzi said. “You have to earn it.”

Tired of working for corporations, Norouzi opened Grill Wrap Cafe Nov. 30 because cooking is what he truly loves to do.

“My dad just loves to grill,” his daughter, Farnaz Norouzi, said. “He cooks at home all the time. Everything we make at home we make here.”

Although many of the dishes at the Grill Wrap Cafe would be considered Mediterranean, Norouzi said his traditional home recipes are not as spicy as one might expect. Norouzi said he doesn’t use canned or frozen food, and none of his ingredients have preservatives. The beef and chicken shish kabab/wraps are made with marinated ribeye meat and boneless chicken tenderloin, which Farnaz Norouzi said are the two most popular items on the menu.

Meat for the gyros are broiled on a vertical skewer. That’s what Tom Schultz ordered on his first visit to Grill Wrap Cafe.

“This is some of the best gyro I’ve had,” Schultz said.

In addition to meat dishes, Farnaz Norouzi said there are a lot of options available for vegetarians. She said the soups are hearty and the vegetarian shish kabab/wrap consists of red and green bell peppers, onions, zucchini and mushrooms. Garden and Greek salads are also available for veggie lovers, as well as tuna salad, chicken Caesar salad and beef kabab garden salad for carnivores.

Norouzi said he chose to open his restaurant at 4804 E. Chandler Blvd. because it’s the right mix of down-to-earth and high-end clientele.

“I always wanted to have the restaurant in Ahwatukee because I like the atmosphere,” he said. “The people are very friendly. They want good food and good customer service, and that’s what I’m trying to give them.”

“The owner just came out and made sure our food was OK. They’re super nice people,” customer Gina Becchetti said. Norouzi said he strives for a fast, casual vibe at the Grill Wrap Cafe. He wants it to be a place where business people can come on their lunch breaks and take advantage of the free Wi-Fi, and also an inviting place for people to come in with their families. Norouzi said a family of four can eat for $22 to $24.

“It’s the best deal you can get for something fresh and healthy,” Farnaz Norouzi said.
