A nice change from all the Tico food we have been enjoying. Everything was very fresh and tasty. The chicken shawarma was very good. We had heard that the lamb chops are a top choice but they were not available the night we were there. The choice on the children's menu was excellent. The only disappointment was frozen papas fritas-... More

Great little spot. Order a pita, and select from a big variety of fillings. Very clean, fast, and efficient. Easily ranks in the top 10% of Middle-eastern places we have eaten in (on 3 continents). Something to please anyone! Nice seating areas indoors and outdoors.

Roy sisso, nice, assistanting, amazing source of information and a wonderful host. worth every dollar and highly recommended.

Food is tasty, plentiful, and fairly priced. There is indoor and outdoor seating in an open mall. It seems like all servers work all tables, therefore the service very quick.

This Israeli place serves wine, as well as, great lamb shawarma and humus dishes. Falafel and chicken were also great. Everything was fresh and tasty and the portions were large. You select your own heat level, and ingredients, in the sandwiches. I had a glass of white, very descent, and a nice pour, with my meal. The espresso was great... More
