“Worst shawarma of my life!”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

I am an Arabic food lover with over 20 years of experience eating in Arabic restaurants.

I tried this Lebanese restaurant following the good ratings on Trip Advisor.

Unfortunately this restaurant does not deliver good food!

The shawarma I ordered with the worst of my life!!!!

C'mon, why do you put French fries in a Lebanese shawarma ??? This is a joke.

Also, the special Akl sauce inside the shawarma just tasted like a poor industrial sauce.

Really awful.

Not recommended.

“Excellent food at very fair prices”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Small takeaway with limited seating, but man is it busy! No wonder, considering the food is excellent. Would have paid more for this quality even. We had to wait for a table, a testament to the quality of the food and indeed it was worth it. Will definitely travel to go there again!

“Good food, meat/veggie/vegan all possible at fair prices”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

A very small place with limited seating, but very casual, so you can ask someone whether you can join at their table if they still have some open charis. It's more like a snackbar than a restaurant. But the food is very good with decent prices and everything tastes very fresh. The fact that you will probably have to wait for a seat and that there are about 7 staff constantly running around the place, is testimony to how many people visit here and keep it busy.
I had a vegeterian Mesa plate, which meant an assortment of different foods. This was absolutely delicious and plenty to fill you up.
Will definitely return!
