Have been coming here for years and it’s so delicious. I have tried ground chicken kebab and the chenjah chicken. Have also tried the salads and veggie sandeich. Very tasty!!! Place is casual so don’t expect to dine like a queen. Just good food.

Eaten here many times and taken out also. Very casual place to grab kabobs. Usually stay with the boneless chicken breast. It is fairly cheap, like most of the items on the menu. The chicken is marinated well. The flavor is deep inside the meat....More
