Our company had fare from this restaurant catered in for a meeting. The falafel was quite good and well seasoned. The chicken shawarma was also. Both the shish tawook and shish kabob were overly seasoned with spices that did not complement the flavor of the...More

The steam table at this location offers many possibilities to create a great lunch pita or salad plate. Portion size might be an issue for some but the emphasis here seems to be on the quality of ingredients rather than enormous portions.

The food was ok for a quick light lunch pick up, but well over seasoned. I'm not sure what they put on the hummus, but it's spicy and salty. I picked up a falafel plate order to go, so the olive oil/seasoning on the hummus...More

This is my favorite stand by - perfect any time I don't feel like cooking which is fairly often. Although the selection is limited, The food is always fresh. For $9, I have a great dinner and some leftovers for lunch the next day

Stopped by for a quick lunch. Mix of middle eastern and Mediterranean cuisine, a bit spicy for those unused to this food, and fine for those who are. Reasonable servings at reasonable price range. Food quality was good, not great.

Their food was at one time excellent but the quality has diminished dramatically over time. Maybe they just Dont care anymore. And their loud and inconsiderate club scene music played so everyone in the food court can suffer is not only off putting but rude...More

One of the few Shawarma joints that serves authentic garlic sauce (Toum) with their Shawarmas. Definitely amongst the best Shawarmas in town.. Don't miss out. Ate their chicken Shawarma with a side of spicy chicken Kabab and hummus.. Hit the spot !
