Located near our hotel, we walked by this modest storefront and got two dishes to take out. The chicken shawarma was great and very reasonable. We had leftovers for the next day's lunch.

Its in the center of downtown and a little hidden but well worth a visit. They have nice people and get the food out quick and we were surprised at the quality and fair prices.

Excellent food. Ordered 2 Chicken Shawarma sandwiches (1 without the sauce and 1 regular sandwich with everything) sandwich was made to order, accurate and tasted fantastic! Large in size and well worth the money.

We like eating here when staying at the hotel down the street. It is simple food but well done and at a price you cant beat.

Stopped in for solo dinner. Menu was clearly posted in the window so there were no surprises. I got the Chicken Schwarma...big plate for $10. They had it ready in about 2 minutes. It was delicious. They had tables inside to eat at, and some...tables out on the street. Nice people too. These guys have done everything right, I can not think of any reason to give them anything less than a perfect score!More

My office and I eat here often. Food is pretty good but please check your food before you leave. There had been several times the food id not what we ordered. Today I ordered 2 Beef Sharma sandwiches. I pick up the sandwiches and drive...the 15 minutes it takes to get back to my work. I open up the sandwich and notice its chicken. I called and the girl tells me more or less that there is nothing they will do about it unless i bring it back up there. I try to explain that I worked 15 minutes away and it would not be possible. She again says there was nothing she could do about it. SO i just paid $14 for sandwiches I cant eat. My money or yours don't mean much to them. Usually about 4 of us order at a time. Very disappointed we have to find a new place to eat for our office lunches.More

I had the falafel platter and my husband had the chicken shawarma. Everything was delicious from the pita, hummus, and tzatziki to the rice. Would definitely recommend.

This little place in Louisville is easily overlooked. It is amazing and you should definitely try it. It is fast and low prices. You can order to go or sit. They have tables for 4 or small booths. The staff is also very friendly.

Excellent falafel and hummus. The stuffed grape leaves are fantastic as well. Always get extra pickles too. Trust me. Friendly staff, lovely folks. One of my favorites.
