Got takeaways here late at night. Toilets dirty and beggars surround the place. Be careful of the extra bread scam as your food probably already comes with bread. Hygiene is non existent here with cats wandering freely and greasy seats and tables. I go there only if desperate for a souv......

My tastebuds were craving a different cuisine and it definitely hit the spot, great prices, laid back area. It's nicer to sit in the open part of the restaurant as inside is really crowded.

The reason why I gave the 4 stars is because this place is very old and not very clean, Also the waitresses are not friendly, and also the service is kind of slow. For the quality of food, no question is it the best I eat in Manila. For the price, reasonable I paid 150 PHP for two sandwiches (wraps)

I understand that all those places have cockroaches. However, when they appear right at your table with people around, then there is a problem. I just started eating when that happened. I paid and left

Simply delicious ! I will always go back & refer it to others. They need more space to cater to more people. I hope they are open on holidays where [eo[le have time to go around.

I've now visited Shawarma Snack Centre a number of times. I will always try to visit a certain place a few times before making any review. This allows me to get the true experience. Each time I go, be it in the middle of the night or lunch time. The food is always great, service is effective and as you... More

There is also a satellite kiosk at a mall nearby but this is still the place to go for the best tasty shawarma.
