Best schwarma in town! Fast service and generous portions. Tip: don't order a schwarma plate, but rather schwarma in pita or in laffa - it is half a price of a plate, yet it will make you full.

I have been here a few times and I have never been disappointed. The portions are huge and everything is uniquely tasty. Cocktails ain't bad either! Great mid-week dinner spot!

That impression was changed as soon as we sat down. Service was good and soon it filled up and by watching the service counter we could... More

Nice Middle-Eastern experience. Need to have suficiente stomach space but marvelous service and vibrant atmosphere. Need to return to be able to try the deserts that looked amazing.

I have been a regular visitor at this restaurant for years and the food has always been really good. Getting there is relatively easy and the restaurant is easy to find.

The Schwarma Co. is consistently good, the food is tasty, fresh and generous in terms of portion sizes. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and service is decent. The Schwarma co is busy all year round and for good reason. We eat here regularly but if you haven't its def worth a visit. A firm and stable area favourite:)
