Excellent food

Went there with my friend and family for a Israeli (middle eastern) lunch. Was excellent food and large portions for a very reasonable price point. Loved the chicken shawarma .

I ordered a Shish Kebab pita and I couldn't finish it because I got full very quickly. I would like to return and taste a different dish, I like... More

I have had a lot of shawarma in quite a few different countries (not in Israel) and this was possibly the best one ever. More of a lunch spot than a dinner spot but it is simple and priced right.

Limited menu on dessert but they are all amazing. Great customer service and the Turkish coffee with cardamom is out of this world.

I believe they have 2 chefs because I have come on occasion and food is not as fabulous as usual, but majority of the time, it is excellent.
