Fantastic Shwarma. Nice, helpful service. Clean. Not expensive. A good place to pick up a quick sandwich when not wanting to sit down for a full restaurant meal.

The staff are welcoming, helpful, and will help... More

This is the best cheap eats in East Jerusalem near the National Hotel. Only 25 shekels gets you a huge, delicious wrap! It is kind of like Subway or Chipotle where you get to choose everything that goes in your wrap. The guys are friendly and speak English. Service is fast, so grab you food and go or grab a... More

The food was great, the prices were great. It could be a little crowded at times, but the atmosphere and music were awesome. This was a favorite spot to grab a schwarma.

After walking around the old city(Jerusalem), the 5 of us, decided to get some lunch just outside in the Arab section. Two of the people had eaten there before and thought it was terrific for quick bite. They were right. The schwarma was delicious and inexpensive. Everything was super fresh plus the owner made us feel comfortable by welcoming us.... More
