As mentioned by others, it can be salty in some cases. The kibbeh was a touch salty but still very good. The Hummus was outstanding, as always. The pita with chicken has never been bad and this trip was great.

I have not tried this restaurant for years, and perhaps it has changed by now, but both times I tried it in the year after it opened, the food was overly salty. The second time my falafel was so salty that I had to throw it out after managing only 1/3 of it. Perhaps this only applies to the vegetarian... More

Whenever we have a hankarin' for great Lebanese food we head for Shawarma Time. It's the best place for a good healthy meal.

Great place!!! Amazing food, wonderful service, incredible value. A real family run place that has never disappointed me in over 20 visits. Have taken many friends here and all were impressed and continue to go there. Incredibly flavourful shawarma; I always finish with a baklava. Highly recommended

Mr Talal and his family will make you feel welcome and like the most important person in the place when you first enter. Simple decorations, and that may be a good thing because it may detract from the taste of the delicious shwarmas and other entrees there. I have had all variety of shwarma here as well as the taboule... More

This unpretentious restaurant is run by a couple, immigrants from Lebanon. They serve lamb, beef and chicken shwarmas - all good. And very good value.

I've been visiting Shawarma Time regularly for the several years now. I've always enjoyed the food. Personally, the #32 (Meat platter) which is served with yellow rice, all the meats, tahini sauce, garlic sauce and a spicy sauce is absolutely amazing! The restaurant may not look like a five star on the inside, but that's not what they try to... More

My wife and I discovered this restaurant several years ago and have continued to visit regularly. We have only had the shawarmas and like the beef and chicken ones best. The proprietor and his family are very friendly and the service is quick. The restaurant is also kept clean.
