My favorite restaurant

The chicken shawarma is seriously one of the best things I've eaten. I love this place. I've tried a couple other things, and all super good. This is my go to place to bring people when they visit me in Detroit.

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

Excellent chicken swarmas, good fries, and good beer selection. Worth a stop before a Tigers or Lions game for some cheap eats.

All the positive reviews still underestimate how good the lunch is at this unpretentious spot. It's the food with taste and flavor you will remember.

My fiance had the Chicken Schwarma wrap and I had the salad version and added feta. There was SO MUCH FOOD! I asked for a little to-go box and had left over chicken to add to my lunch salad the next day. I'm a picky meat eater and the chicken was perfect - no grit, no elastic parts, just perfectly...

Picked up schwarma sandwiches and pitas and hummus on the way to an outdoor concert. Delicious, fast and inexpensive! Even at 5:30pm on a Saturday, there was a non-stop line but I thought the line moved quickly and we were out the door in under 15 minutes! Great place!!

I've lived in south east michigan for 25 years and yet somehow this little beauty had escaped me up until recently. As far as service is concerned, there isn't much of any, but if you want your mouth and mind blown by the best chicken Schwarma on the planet do not miss the opportunity to stop in here. I advise...

This Corktown area eatery only has a carry out option but the food is amazing. The line was long around lunch but moved fairly quickly. My only critique is there really wasn't anywhere to eat other than my car. They should put In a patio area or expand with a dining room, The food makes this place great if you... More

While not too far from the river front, I imagine some people will stop at any restaurant to stumble upon while staying downtown. This place is a hidden gem for tourists and a well-loved eatery for locals. We got there just in time to beat the local rush. Great, healthy food at bargain prices! $19 for two adults?!? The chicken... More
