Inexpensive shwarma's that are also delicious. Their sauces are really the best, the pink and green one, I suggest trying them. Their fries are also very good, I really don't know what they do to them but they resemble steak fries and are just the perfect texture. Their prices range from $6 to $12 or so. If you are hungry...

Believe me guys you have to come to this place, forget anything you have tried before.... this is s must stop if you come to St. Maarten. Try the mix (lamb and chicken) schwarma. Ask for schriracha hot sauce, you won't regret.

I have found my visits here to be hit and miss. The chicken in the shwarma doesn't come off a spit and consists of chunks of chicken pieces. Service has been good at times and rude at other times but is definitely a good late-night spot after a night out to satisfy your food cravings.

I haven't stopped here in a long time. Enjoyed the shrimp wrap..the shrimp were plump & not rubbery, seasoned well with the right amount of tasty sauce! Perfect size for pricing. No complaints..

Great place if you are hungry for a tasty fast meal. The meat is so tender and flavorful, the sauce is a great complement especially if you like garlic. This is cheap good eats on St. Maarten and that lamb shwarma is my favorite. Perfect post dive snack :-)

Literally for over a decade straight this place has been voted best Shwarma on the island. Also, last year it was voted best fast food restaurant by the locals. Great portions, amazing flavor, friendly staff, best value for your money. It's also open really late so it's a great place to stop after a night of drinking. I like pretty... More

Visited on 5/16/16 with 2 friends. Not only did it take 75 minutes to get our food after we ordered, we watched several customers who arrived after us get their's first. Chicken burger was a dry piece of grilled chicken. Would have given to the emaciated dog on the patio had it not run off already. Never going back.

This has to be one of the best place to get a shawarma anywhere. Every time I come down to the island he trip isn't complete without a bite of their chicken and lamb combo which is out of this world!!! Fantastic job you guys!!!!

This place was awesome! We are always looking for places in St. Maarten that taste good but aren't expensive and this place fits the bill. We had two beef chunk shwarma that were a little dry but had great seasoning and then a lamb and a falafel pita that were soooo goood!!!! The sauce was great and was just dumped... More
