This is an odd location but the food here is good. Steam table presentation so you can see what you're getting. Good food at fair prices and good portions.

Fried eggplant, hummus, beef and chicken shawarma, fried cauliflower, rice...this restaurant is our go-to when we need a middle-eastern food fix. It isnt the safest area of town, and you definitely don't go here for ambiance. Just GREAT food.

Liked the falafel, prepared salads. Cheese and spinach pies need more filling. Baba ganoush very strange and weak - yuck. Baklava excellent.

They might not have the best Shawarma in the world but there is plenty of other amazing options to make it worthwhile. The portions are HUGE and the prices are low. If you've never tried the hummus here, you haven't head the best hummus outside...More

I like shawarma. I love hummus. Hummus was very good, pistachio baklava delicious, but the chicken shawarma... dry and not as good. Meatball, potato, pita just average. And glasses for water weren't totally clean. Waitress was very attentive and price was good. Order at the...More

I have lived for 10 years in Middle East and so I can say for sure that this comes close to what a real shawarma tastes like. I have been to other cities in US and none comes close to this one. Full marks! The...More
