Please order lamb shawarma! The best I've tasted if not the best in the world! Super food! A must visit!

For a quick, filling but pretty unremarkable ear it does the job--- but not quite good enough for namesake

Ordered the chicken kebab to take away, since I spoke English the guy probably thought "give him the tourist stuff". One of the worst chicken I have ever had. It smelled bad and it tasted bad. Too late to go back and complain since I was already on the train when I ate it. 12francs for a disaster. I should... More

Compared to the falafel in Paris this was a dry tasteless imitation. At only 10chf for a falafel sandwich seemed too good to be true in the Cornavin square. It was indeed. Had to add loads of yogurt sauce or mayo whatever it was to make it edible. Service was very good though.

The place was good to get cheap food in the expensive city of Geneva. The service was quite fast. The food was so-so.

Should've known better than try Middle Eastern food in Europe. Poor service, bad food. Stick to traditional Swiss fare instead, i.e. meat and cheese.

Ok food, the lamb sandwich has a generous meat portion, but it feels like it was missing a little bit of something. Friendly staff, generous portion - overall, there are better kebabs in the area, but if you're in a rush and have something to grab real quick next to the train station, that'll do the trick.

There are times where one is pressed into using the word dreadful, and unfortunately for me, tonight was one of those times. One is greeted into the establishment not by friendly smiles and the typical 'Bienvenue' one is accustomed to in these parts, but by utter negligence. The seemingly well integrated Turkish (or Balkan) staff appear not to have mastered... More

Quick and polite service. We ate chicken kebab, one plate with french fries (19 framc) and one in kind of bread (sort of pita, 10 franc) , amd a salad dish. Great with yoghurt souce. Soup also looks good. Dishes is generous and very tasty.

I've been to this place at least 8 or more so decided to write a review since the last 3 visits have been kind of a let down. This place is/ used to be the perfect place to get a sandwich for 10chf before heading for a stroll around the lake. The must have changed something in the bread because... More
