Pretty busy on a weekday evening. Service friendly but pretty hectic. Had the grilled sea bass which was very fresh and grilled to perfection. Warm Pita bread fresh and delicious. Pomegranate juice very reasonably priced. Recommended

Pleasant surprise, when you arrive you are served fresh hot pita and about 10 different spreads that are part of ones meal. We had the chicken and the beer skewers, very flavorful and tender.

It's Shawarma Haj Kahil at the corner of Shivtei Israel and Avodat Israel where they meet Yefet. There is indoor seating along the side, but we sat out front on the street.
