“Good hearty Mideastern comfort/fast food”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Shawara is not really healthy, but it sure tastes good. They do it here as good as anywhere. There are lots of different garnishes to choose from, some spicy and some not. You can take your pickled veggies on the side in a plastic container. You can have a smaller portion in a pita, or a big one in a "laffa". Think about your health and take the smaller one.

“Worst Shawarma ever!”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Having eaten the falafel here and absolutely loved it we decided to try the shawarma.....oh no! Never again! It was dreadful! Dry, overpriced and really not worth the having. We found ourselves asking the question, "was it fresh or had it been cooked before Shabbat and refrigerated until after Shabbat?" It just did not have a fresh feel about it.

“Good Eats”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is a very busy place, but for good reason. The food here is very fresh and tasty. When it is busy it is best to know what you want, as you may feel rushed or pressured if you take some time trying to decide.

“Fast, Fantastic, Frugal”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Located on the Ben Yehuda pedestrian walkway, there is always a line up here with tourists and locals. They focus the menu on only 2-3 items but they do it very well at a very reasonable price. Items range between 15-35 shekels. Available is falafel or shawarma in a pita, laffa, baguette or plate. There is not a lot of area for seating but the street side cafe does offer a small seating section outside. Their food is fresh, fast cheap and delicious.
