Got the mixed shawarma plate. Pretty average overall. The serving size is definitely generous but the meat was very cold. The owner is nice and gave a free baklava with the plate. The place itself is clean too.

Loud music but when i asked the young woman if it could be turn down she immediately did so -and she did it with a smile. I had a Chicken Shawarma - it was really good. At only $10.00 it's a very good deal.

When I first saw this place I was dubious. From the outside it looks like a place I would not usually go into, kind of a dump to be honest. Glad I did though, the food is fantastic & the prices are very reasonable. Will...More

Delicious, if you like Shwarma or Donair, this is a delicious place to get something quick and good. Value is right up there. Service is friendly and the line ups can be long at lunch.
