Sometime, when travelling, you're looking for unpretentious, simple and cheap food. And this is one of the best kebab I ever had. Even here, in my city Montreal, we have tons of kebab restaurant, I havent taste any nearly as good as those. Simple, cheap, and very friendly. Full of locals on evenings with a lot of ambiance!

First, it was wrapped in a perfect crispy pita, rather than the mediocre wrap found so often in the center. The... More

I've eaten kebabs all over the world, I can honestly say, these kebabs are the best. Everything is homemade from the bread to the hummus, babaganush, falafels and the gyros of meat which he marinades on the premises. There is always a convivial atmosphere as the owner is very friendly and funny. Order "uno fatto bene" or "garantito" and he... More
