This Turkish restaurant makes the best chicken shawarma sandwich in Jerusalem. It was so good that I ate there twice. Great service and delicious food at a good price.

Fantastic Shwarma. Nice, helpful service. Clean. Not expensive. A good place to pick up a quick sandwich when not wanting to sit down for a full restaurant meal.
