Delicious and cheap.

Great place for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Had huge portions of delicious food for a very small bill. You will be happy with the food and ecstatic with the price. The family that runs it is also very nice.

Hands down, the best value on the island! The owner is awesome, the food is nothing short of stellar, and the prices are a fraction of what you pay in so many of the other restaurants. We had never eaten schwarma before eating here...one of the first things we did after our meal was to Google schwarma restaurants back home.... More

I've had several kinds of shwarma/shoarma in different countries but this truly wins the crown. Very friendly people, the owner and his wife both. In another restaurant you'd be paying much more for the same quality and quantity meal, not that you can find this anywhere else. Highly recommended to try once and you'll definitely come back.

Looking for some food to feed the family after a long boating trip with too much sun and rum. Was going to go past this place, a little open balcony with chairs, when I saw Abraham watching me, knowingly, from his hole in the wall. So I went to have a look and there's a short menu of schwarmas. I... More

Saw good reviews on TA and tried ourselves. Owner generously gave us a healthy portion to test. It was excellent and very clean. Great folks give it a try.

We are here 3 times during our stay . We had different choices each time and every meal was flavoursome and the tastes were different! The host was amazing and very friendly. Our meals were very good value for money and could not be faulted. If we return to St Maartin we will definitely be making sure we return to... More

Very small restaurant where you sit outside. Owner and his wife are very friendly and help with ordering. I didn't even know what swarma is but it was delicious. I had the chicken swarma sandwich and my husband had the platter very filling and large portions. Prices were very fair. I would go again.

This is the best place I have eaten at for Middle Easten food. The portion of chicken in my spicy curry pita was 4x as much as momos in Maho. The price was $6 , less than momos and the taste and portion was 5x better. The owner cares about his clients and makes sure each person is satisfied! He... More

Trip Advisor highly recommends this restaurant. I was a little disappointed when we pulled into the parking lot as it eas not what I had expected as far as ambience. When we went to order our food, the chef/owner was set to answer any questions we had, but when we began to think about what we wanted, he asked us... More

Meat was extremely tender and tasted great with the garlic sauce. Owner gave us a taste before we ordered. Both chicken and lamb equally good. Definitely full when we left!
