Quick service, nice price, and tasty kebab. Very nice compared with other kebabs that break down easily or have all meat and salad separate. Very compact and we'll grilled, with all tastes on a bite not having a mess while trying to eat it.

I live this place! Friendly fast and delicious middle eastern scran in bustling part of town. Great menu but I am a sucker for the classic Chicken Shawarma. Near national museum. Great pit stop!
