Their shawarma is obviously contested as one of the best in Abuja which is not far from the truth. It's really nice but getting pricey.

This is officially the best place to get shawarma in Abuja. It is packed with meaty goodness. So juicy and filling. I used to be a fan of Shawarma King but Chicken Capitol has my heart. It's a must try! I've never had anything else here though, I speak only for their shawarma.

CC still has the best shawarma in town. Although the place is beginning to look a bit rundown these days. Staff attitude could be better.

One of the best places to get shawarma in Abuja. Surroundings are not too nice, but ok for a quick bite. Different and better shawarma taste. Large is really huge, be prepared!

They still have the best sharwama the sharwama in Abuja in my books. You get to choose the content of your sharwama by filling a form. You get a no. after paying and you gotta wait till your no. shows on the screen and you go pick up your order. If possible call ahead so your order is ready and... More

To me, their sharwama is 2nd best, right behind Drumstix sharwama. It's pretty good, but get ready to wait. It's better to call ahead, then drop by to pick up
