“Great value, generous portions and great taste”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Very generous with food . I usually have shawerma and it comes with salad , hummos and olives too.

Sometimes the shawerma is cooked earlier and is kept somewhere and then is reheated, which is very disappointing as nothing beats freshly cut shawerma.

I also tried chicken kebab , which were freshly prepared.

great value as you get big portions.

“Straightforward , flavoursome Middle Eastern/ Lebanese food”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

This is a good place - even sitting down quickly to eat - for a flavoursome Falafel or Shish Kebab.Friendly staff , swift service and a lively take-away like atmosphere though the emphasis is on sitting down . You can have a tasty sit-down snack or meal here that takes only fifteen minutes from ordering to finishing off . Recommended .

“The best kebabs west of the middle east”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

I have been going to Palmyra for the chicken schawerma for nealry a decade at least every six months. Its flawless. They've had 3 changes of chef in that time and the service, food quality and value are always excellent. The consistency in their whole menu is admirable over a long period. A lot of middle-east origin folk work here and eat here which is always a good sign and my friend who has stayed all over the middle east says its the closest thing to the real deal you can possibly find outside that region of the world. Aside from the schawerma, they pretty much nail everything else as well. I have never been even moderately disappointed in anything I've ordered. Try the falafel and the balakava
