  • The food is excellent and affordable. The owners are super sweet. They just added kabobs to the menu; give em a try!
  • Get the Beef Shawarma Package. Chicken is also good. And you can choose / grab your own baklava if you like.
  • The falafel is good but the beef shwarma is king. See what I did there? Seriously, this is the best place for shwarma in this entire part of the city.
  • Good hummus!
  • For faster service call ahead
  • Amba - get it on the shwarma. It'll chance your life...
  • Shwarma Chicken Platter is the BEST!
