“Best sharwarmas ever and super good value too”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

This place is an institution. Busy every evening and packed full of customers from all sorts of backgrounds. The slightly grimy decor only makes it seem more authentic and the guys behind the bar are quite an entertaining bunch. The food speaks for itself - the mixed grill (both veggie and meat) is massive and packed full of flavour and great value for under CHF 20. And for a quick dinner on the go, the viande shawarma is seriously a delight. If you are ever stuck on what to eat for dinner, just pop in here - you will not be disappointed.

“Filthy and non-inviting place”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Definitely a place to avoid...with so many Turkish kebab places in Geneva, and proper lebanese ones this place is a disaster...staff indifferent, food so so, type of guests making you feel uncomfortable (underworld even by Paquis standards)...

“Great food with no atmosphere.”
Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

This place is one if many Lebanese places in the paquis district, but this is the only one PACKED with customers. It is a no frills, no atmosphere restaurant, but the food is excellent. For Geneva, the price is great. A local told me, "this place was voted best Lebanese food outside of Lebanon". I agree.

“The place to go for falafel sandwich in paquis”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Service is fast, brash and not particularly friendly. Decor is simple, down to earth, and I would struggle to call it clean, but it would lose its charm if it was. This place just off the red light district of Paquis is almost always buzzing with diners from every walk of life and is open into the late hours.

If that doesn't bother you, it does seriously good falafel sandwich - and its cheap.

Stick to the falafel. The rest is just so-so. Bring cash.
