It's even better! 😉 Exceptional service, in English (a rarity in this part of the world), and very very good Schwarma. Well done!

Excellent small shawarma place with open 'kitchen' in the middle of the 'restaurant'. Few tables and a bar to sit on. Shawarma makers that look like you're in the right place for a good bite. 3 shawarma + 2 drinks 62 NIS. Excellent. Recommendable. Enjoy!

Simple and tasty. Meat, onions and tomatoes inside a pita. You might have to wait a while to get your dish, but its worth it.

THE BEST shawarma I have ever tasted! There were 7 of us and the place is very small and crowded with locals, however, the staff put a few tables together for us. Only 1 thing on the menu - swarma, but it is done to perfection. My kids loved it so much that we ordered another round for them! The... More

Ate Shawarma at Emil's several times... Each was at least as great or better than the previous time! This place is by far the best place for Shawarma in Israel! The owners actually care for your satisfaction and assure you receive your money's worth and more... Make sure to stop there at least once for an amazing culinary experience!

Emil serves one dish - shawarma - in pita or on a plate. The condiments are simple: onion, tomato, tchina (tahini) and amba. That's it. The portions are smallish but the meat is the best I have had outside of Turkey (and better than most places in Turkey). I personally know people who take the train from another city to... More
