We stopped by unannounced with a HUGE group. A manager came out to the sidewalk immediately to distribute menus and facilitate the line. Made recommendations on the spot for best eats and best buys, (they are famous locally for the schwarma). Super close to the ball parks. Our party presented a serious challenge (23 teenagers) as the servers hustled to... More

Great, fresh food! I've eaten at the bar and I've also gotten take out. I enjoy the fattoush with chicken or the chicken sandwich. Both options are fantastic. The service is quick, so even if there's a line, you'll get through it in no time. The prices great too, making it the perfect lunch takeaway.

Perfect spot for lunch in Detroit. Went here recently with a co-worker at his recommendation. I was not disappointed. The chicken schwarma sandwiches with the garlic spread are fantastic. It is such a great value and there is so much flavor in these sandwiches. The portion sizes are very generous as the sandwiches are also stuffed with fries. In addition... More

Not sure this is "shwarma"... I mean, a nice grilled chicken pita, but... In any case, the service is fast, the staff is fun, it's so so so so affordable, and it is delicious and hits the spot for whatever event you're in the area for. Will totally come back next time I'm at the Fillmore.

this is the first and last time I order from this so-called grill. they messed up my order and didn't want to help me out in order to get it right. plus, we ordered sandwiches that had old lettuce in them and the pita bread was very dry. very irritating to go through something like this for the first time...

Best chicken shawarma EVER and the hummus plate is a MEAL! So good! Nice bar for watching the game with additional seating upstairs for large groups like our (we had 8 in ours). Easy walk (5-10min) to Ford Field and Fox Theater.

This was my wife's first trip to Detroit. Being from here originally we spent the two weeks hitting up all the metro Detroit area dining I enjoyed while living here. The food here lived up to expectation as being not only amazing but also affordable. The service however was not. The woman taking our order barely spoke to us and... More
