The shawarmas are really good here and will run you 12 Qr for a large one. This is a restaurant that has quick delivery and works for those on the go who live in the West Bay Area.

Avoid it if you could. I went there last weekend, ordered the mixed grill and mixed salads. I was the first in the restaurant, it was a Friday, straight after prayers. I got the starter, i.e. the mixed salad, great. After 20 minutes or so they brought the mixed grill. I kid you not, I struggled to chew the meat... More

The Chicken shawarma is good, sometimes the grilled chicken is very good sometimes is cooked from yesterday. Some salad items is delicious. But the restaurant need to improve the quality. The staff is nice.

Let me start with the positives: delicious sharwamas , and fairly reasonable prices Negatives: quality of food (lamb) is not good - seasoning and overall taste of food is generic.

Not quite appealing for the outside but it serves very good food at a reasonable price. This restaurant is more of a take away place, but it also has seating facilities,The service is quick which means that you do not have to wait for a long time. I highly recommend it for a quick eat.

Doesn't look much from the outside, but boy is the food good. Whether it's take away or eating in, the food tastes great. Portion sizes are good. Service is always really good, despite at times it being manic, with folks in the restaurant, car pulling up outside and honking their horns for service etc. Best Chicken Sharwma in town.
