Shawarma Place-Halal Food

This place is good if you are looking for Arabian food , the place is okay and the food quality is also okay. Nothing too great and value for money,good place to go to if you are looking for Halal food in Manila which is difficult to get.

This is not the right place you are looking for to eat Middle-Eastern food! We were there many times in past 2 years, and this experiences are not for only one time. First of all, food is not always same, so it's up to your chances, sometimes it's really terrible, and about quality, it's never go higher than middle. Place... More

This place is visited most by Arabian, We (European) went there several times for a shwarma, with fries or bread. Which cost about 2 USD, and taste well! I advise the mixed shwarma with 2 kinds of meat. The atmosphere is cosy, quit, with tv with arab programm. The waitresses are all Philipina who speak english. You can borrow waterpipes... More

Bad service, dirty, not for family, dry reheated food, a waste of money. No wonder the bill was low. Furniture looks awful and dirty, not worth going there

SSC offers a variety of middle eastern food and all of them are halal food. If you are in Ermita, I would suggest visit this restaurant and taste the food. The speciality of the restaurant is, all the food are cheap as compared to Kashmir restaurant and other halal food offering restaurants in Ermita. The location is very easy to... More

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.:)
