Great place if you are hungry for a tasty fast meal. The meat is so tender and flavorful, the sauce is a great complement especially if you like garlic. This is cheap good eats on St. Maarten and that lamb shwarma is my favorite. Perfect post dive snack :-)

Literally for over a decade straight this place has been voted best Shwarma on the island. Also, last year it was voted best fast food restaurant by the locals. Great portions, amazing flavor, friendly staff, best value for your money. It's also open really late so it's a great place to stop after a night of drinking. I like pretty... More

Visited on 5/16/16 with 2 friends. Not only did it take 75 minutes to get our food after we ordered, we watched several customers who arrived after us get their's first. Chicken burger was a dry piece of grilled chicken. Would have given to the emaciated dog on the patio had it not run off already. Never going back.

This has to be one of the best place to get a shawarma anywhere. Every time I come down to the island he trip isn't complete without a bite of their chicken and lamb combo which is out of this world!!! Fantastic job you guys!!!!

We had two beef chunk shwarma that were a little dry but had great seasoning and then a lamb and a falafel pita that were soooo goood!!!! The sauce was great and was just dumped... More

After a late show in Carribean movie theater we decided to get some late take out dinner from this place, since it it conveniently located in same shopping complex. Also helps that it is open until 3am. We ordered the Shwarma... More

I have been here many times - I ordered the ground beef kabob plate and about 20 minutes later after checking several times she presented the beef tips. I told her that is not what I ordered and she said it was all that they had. I told her I don't eat them then she proceeded to tell me that... More
