“Great meal, a bit too expensive”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Shemesh is a well known Shawarma institution in Israel. The food is great, the service is OK and there are lots of salads to accompany you Pita, but the owners know their good so the meals are over-priced to my taste.

“Shemesh is Synonymous with Shawarma”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Shemesh is the mythological shawarma place in Israel. you will enjoy the steaming hot meat drenched in humus and tehina, and topped with salads and freshly prepared relish. Don't miss shemesh if you want to enjoy a local delight

“Used to be the best”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

But the tastes are too strong, some of it (small pieces) are inedibe. Could happen in any Schwarma. Too heavy on the stomach.

“Great Shwarma, though highly overpriced”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Unquestionably one of the best Shwarma's in Ramat Gan (i.e. in the world), but 39 shekels (Nov. 2012) is a bit much for street food.

“excellent shawarma but very expensive”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

I do like their shawarma but still I don't think it worth the price they are asking for it. Shawarma supposed to be a popular and cheap food
