We were told that if we could find a parking place downtown, we should have lunch at the Shawarma Palace. And so should you, unless you are one of the many customers who orders take out. The spinach pie was first rate, the falafel was...More

Food was delicious and so flavorful! The owner was super nice and brought us a lot of free things to try out. Chicken and beef shawarma as well as grape leaves and all the dips were absolutely fantastic!

We stopped here after visiting WPI, it's about a five minute drive away. We got 3 sandwiches to go, for the ride home. The reviews on yelp we're good and although I had a 14 and 11-year-old with me (they are adventurous eaters) we thought...More

This was an unexpectedly good meal; would have been improved by serving on real plates with actual tableware instead of picnic style paper plate and plastic fork. The plate was overcrowded and food got cold. Everything was well prepared and top quality ingredients were evident....More

Just started working in this area and noticed this restaurant. Saw so many great reviews. I was advised to order ahead as this spot is very busy. I did and was greeted by a very friendly gentleman. I placed my order for a falafel salad...More
