I've eaten at the Shwarma Snack Center, location between Del Pilar and Mabini on numerous occasions between 2001 and 2011. Too bad it's a bit far for me with airports in between, and the the "shwarma" outlets I can currently access couldn't spell "shwarma" unless they read their sign a dozen times, let alone learn what to serve. I would... More

the falafel is delicious. Too bad the surroundings are filthy. They have their open restaurant and also their air conditioned place across the street.

I have tried other restaurants similar to this but SSC has the best tasting shawarma/food. The good thing is the freshness and taste of their food is consistent even in other branches like BF president's avenue and BF el grande ave. 3 shawarmas for P125 -winner. It is true, You can't just eat one, you have to eat more.:)

I would not normally enter a restaurant with a name like this; however, a friend recommended it and said that they sell hummus and pita bread. Shawarma Snack Center serves Middle Eastern food, with a number of vegetarian choices. There are 2 restaurants with the same name right across each other -- one is said to be cheaper than the...

This was my first time at shwarma. The shwarma, the green mango smoothies, and the prices were all fantastic. We loved the atmosphere; the view from the upper balcony. Our server checked in to make sure our hooka was functioning. I'll revisit here next time I'm in Manila.

This restaurant is one of the main reasons why I keep coming back to Malate. It was introduced to me by an Arab friend and the rest was history. The location is not really the best but the food is just amazing! When you're there, don't forget to order their biryani and their hummus. One more thing, just in case... More

.... This is the third time they tried this one.... You order the kebabs. It comes with bread. You order the dips. It comes with bread. Then the waitress asks if you want extra bread.

I have tasted a lot of hummus in other manila restaurants. Hummus in this restaurant is a must try! do not be fooled with rowdy streets where it is located. Well worth the travel. They have two restaurant.. one budget friendly with a so-so ambiance, the other one feels like you are in Arabian nights!
