Yes this is the best middle eastern food I am eating since 4 years and the good thing is they keep improving. Not to expensive but amazingly tasty food. I love their rice, shawerma platter, soup, mandi...actually I love their all food.

I've come here a few times now, and always order the chicken salad. In most places, I order the same thing, and they give me a forest of salad, and 2-3 bits of chicken. Here they don't hold back on the chicken, and have a...More

Food was terrible. Not fresh at all and bad quality all round. Will not return for a second visit. Nothing seemed that authentic.

The food here is so tasty and honestly the best value along the Chulia Street strip of restaurants. If you're traveling in a budget, this is the place. I ordered several falafel wraps (we came back 3 or 4 times) and each time it was...More

We came here on a whim fancying some quality shawerma and we weren't disappointed. We got a platter which came with chicken, bread, seasoned fries, hummus and a couple of salads. Everything was delicious and the service was friendly and quick. Highly recommend this place!
