“A great pit stop!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

If you like cheap, healthy snack food such as falafel, shwarma, etc, this is a GREAT little pit stop....situated on BenYehuda, street it is easy to find and the queues tell you that this is a popular place for many locals too...Service is fun, fast and the portions are large - I asked for a half a portion of pitta stuffed with shwarma, humous and salad and this was enough for me....this was not our first stop at this place and service and food have been consistently good. It is not a sit down restaurant, its a take away but there are some places to sit in the street.

“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.
