(Updated at 4:05 p.m.) A halal gyro and platters shop that calls New York home is coming soon to Reston’s North Point Village Center.

Shah’s Halal Food plans to open a 1,200-square-foot location in the village center by early 2023, according to a company spokesperson.

“The owner of the Reston location has lived in the community for years after relocating from NY. He has found it be be a thriving community and one that appreciates great quality food,” the spokesperson told FFXnow in a statement.

The menu includes a mix of gyros, sandwiches, salads, along with the restaurant’s signature white and green sauces. Other items include chicken tenders, nuggets, and cheesesteak.

Shah’s was established in 2005 as a food court in Richmond Hill in Queens. Nearly 11 years after launching, the business opened its first brick-and-mortar restaurant in Long Island.

The Reston location would be the company’s second in Virginia, joining a location in Falls Church. The menu includes chicken tenders, nuggets, platters, cheesesteak, sandwiches, and salads.

(Correction: This article previously said this would be Shah’s first location outside of New York. H/t to commenter Jason Kazi for pointing out the error.)
