We were 14 people in which we ordered almost every dish. Everything we ate was delicious. Shawirma, Kabab, kibbeh, falafel, chicken, and much more. The service was very fast and efficient. Staff was very kind and fast. We highly recommend it.

The restaurant is no longer as usual. The Shawarma sandwiches were raw and the bread was cold and the service was not good. I am sad because this restaurant was very good.
