A friend and I visited this restaurant for a late lunch during a weekend. While there is a menu, the pictures of plated food on the wall behind the counter made everything look so tempting. The gentleman behind the counter addressed all our questions and took our order. Our meals and side dishes arrived very quickly, and everything looked fresh... More

We have visited Awe Shack several times. Their lamb and salmon dishes are excellent!! The restaurant is very small and does not have a liqueur license. It does not have a great atmosphere and many other restaurants around do.

Bad service and food, what should of been a good Friday night dinner turned out to be bad. Service: We order a chicken kabob with chick peas and kabuli rice and a chicken Jalferazi also with kabuli rice. We were the only two customers and after 10 mins people started coming in. We waited 30 mins for our food and... More

We go here a lot bc it is close by. The people are very nice. Food is always well cooked, fresh and very good. We usually carry out but have eaten in as well.

Enjoyed the food but found the atmosphere tiny, echo like and cold, similar to some regional hamburger chains. Point at menu, pick off list, pay and wait until your number is called. If you are going carry out fine but don't expect fine dining as far as eat in. Unfortunately the prices are above average for the service and food... More

Great place! We have tried several new (to us) dishes here, and the food is fresh and well prepared. Service has always been friendly and very helpful for us newbies.

We have been here a few times and it is always good. Tonight we had the mantu appetizer, which is a ravioli-type dish stuffed with meat and served with a yogurt sauce. For our entrees, my wife had the lamb kabob and I had the beef and chicken combination kabob. Fresh and made to order, everything was very good. For... More

It's always a treat to grab lunch in this place as not only is the food delicious and fresh, but the portion is big that you can get 2 meals out of it! In addition, the owners are very friendly .

Since our favorite kabob place closed a few months ago, we decided to give it a try. Although there is indoor seating, this establishment seems to be primarily for carry-out customers. The owner was very friendly. My wife had the vegetable platter that she said was good. I had the beef kabob platter that was also good, but not the... More

I've eaten here a couple of times and I've never been disappointed. I really like the samosas and the beef and chicken kebobs with the kabuli rice. The food is consistently fresh and I've enjoyed every meal I've had here. I usually order carry-out. Everything is made to order, so it can take a little while for your food to... More
