Worth the wait

The Abu Ghazi may have only had one chef with the line out the door, but the food was so good that it was worth the wait. The wide variety of Shwarma dishes they had available were quite extensive. Our group tried about half of the menu and no one left disappointed or hungry (the portions are... read more

The beef kabab meal was very nice the beef was cooked perfectly. The fish kabab meal could've been better when speaking of taste.

Decent kebab. Not too greasy and just great taste. Small place and run by friendly staff. My friend recommended this place and for a change we had decent kebab on Sint Maarten

I've had a variety of shwarma's from different restaurants. Abu Ghazi's isn't anything special. The shwarmas are okay though.

I tried this place today for the first time and all I can say is average. The price cannot be beat but I found the chicken shawarma to be dry and very salty. I think I have drank about 5 bottles of water since eating there for lunch. The staff was a bit rude to me as well. I would... More

Very authentic and delicious! I had a chicken kebab with salad and my family had a lamb shawarma . We eat there a few times a week every time we come to SXM. Must try! You will love it!😊

Excellent Shwarma, we had a chicken and a steak shawarma. Very yummy, fantastic value for your money. Perfect when you are hunger but in a hurry. I recommend stoping by here for a quick eat, when you are in Simpson Bay. It's located next to the Movie theatre.

This is not quite a restaurant.....order at the counter and eat on a try or take away BUT it is very good. It's straight forward Shwarma....fresh and authentic. Casual outdoor seating is fine and parking is good. I remember the long line when this business was run out of a food truck so there's a long tradition of a decent... More
