I ordered a normal size shawarma mixta and got a tiny shawarma with very little meat in it. I would be okay to pay 10,000 pesos but for 18,000, I would much rather have El Corral or the other Arab food place in Complex de los Balsos. I do not plan to return or recommend this place.

Nothing fresh, everything was in prepackaged styrofoam containers in refrigerator that is heated in microwave. Is located in a food court and food is served with plastic utencils and no cups for drinks-including wine that was served with a straw!!!

Good flavors, well prepared and fast service; it's a little crowded but definitely worth to try, falafel was good, same as for the hummus, salads. You get real taste, real food, moderately priced.
