This place was great. Quick and good food. My daughter is vegan and had no problem ordering a vegan meal. Mine bowl was spicy (as I ordered) with lots of meat. Great flavor and really nice people. I will definitely be going back.

the use of shawarma seasoning makes you want to buy some and try it on your own cooked middle east sandwiches.
