You cannot miss having a Shawarma from this place. It is unlike a shawarma available at any other place. Though small in size, they are made crispy and very tasty. Only chicken available though, but definitely not to miss.

Very tasty shawarma and chicken. That is basically all the offerings on the non-existent menu.. other than the fresh juices and fries they offer. One of the few items my toddler will eat other than "chicken nuggets"
