We are regulars here been at least 12 times and we usually get the Chicken Schwarma plate. We love the variety of salads that you can choose from and the 2 hot sauces that you can get. The seasoning on the chicken schwarma is very flavorful. I ask to get the pita bread they give us toasted and use it... More
