Great shawarma

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.

My husband and I ate here on our first night in Costa Rica. The staff was so helpful. They were able to translate the menu to English and explain different dishes. The food was amazing also. I've never been to Jerusalem so I can't compare the two but I would try this restaurant again!

The food was excellent, the owner and staff were great. After being in Costa Rica for a week what a treat to eat such comfort food. I would recommend coming here to enjoy the wide selection of excellently prepared dishes. Very fresh, good portions and a value for your dollar.
