I'm a local and this is my favorite shawarma! Super clean and trendy spot, yet sticks to the old no frills approach to delicious Israeli food. If this is your first time I recommend getting the plate which comes with eggplant roasted veggies and falafel,...More

Very noisy place with poor quality too salty hummus. The falafel and tahini were too salted also. I ordered shawarma in pita and separately falafel. The meat of shawarma was of average quality with some unchewable fragments.
