Restaurant details
Reviewed July 19, 2011

I went here three time to try the Shawarma because I LOVE this stuff. I was greatly disappointed all 3 times. The meat is just warn and lacking seasoning/flavor. The sauce is lacking flavor/spice and the sandwich in general is a bit less than average. Didn't get any onions on my sandwich and was never asked whether I wanted any or not.

Try Ararat restaurant in Watertown instead, they make INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS food.

We may be spoiled having had a very large middle eastern population where we come from, but we had pretty bad shawarmas here - the meat was dry and did not even taste like shawarma, prices were high for what we got. despite other reviews, i would not come back.

My Shawarma was so incredibly messy but so good! I can't believe I've been passing this place for years without going in!

The people are super nice and they even have benches outside. I'll definitely be getting from here again. I also love that it's open on Saturdays, because Rami's in Coolidge Corner isn't, and that tends to be when we crave falafel!
