When I worked in Westwood, I went there ALL the time! Their shawarma is excellent and felafel is right up there, too; and they let you put on whatever add-ons you want. Reasonably priced, it's a must eat at in Westwood.

I really like the food here and eat here often when working at UCLA. There's a fair selection of food here, at a good price and they also have outdoor seating which is a bonus in Westwood.
