“tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

one of the best shawarma in Israel, I am adicted to this fast food type. the only reason its not getting 5 star - because its too expensive. far more expensive then the usual standart.
shemesh has a great taste, with unike spices, very fast serivce. the side salads are fine and average. same with the french fries - average and cost 6 shekel more if you want to take on the side and not in the pitta - most of the other shawarma places - its free.
gooes perfect with the pitta/ lafa/ plate, I prefer the lafa thing.
tip - ask for fat ("shuman") :)

“Not What It Used To Be!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

If you are there the by all means buy your Shawarma over there, but on the other hand. Do Not Go Especially Just Because Then Name, There are so many great places for Middle Eastern fast-food places in the area, just read a few I've posted in the past. It used to be real good place to eat Shawarma, but throughout the years something happened to this place after it turned into a franchise and the food is by far not so great anymore, but the PR is high, while others small establishments are far better and usually you'll find them by a word of mouth.
