We stopped here for lunch, had the chicken and lamb swarma pita’s, and they were fresh and amazing! The staff was very friendly, service pretty quick (they were busy), and the food was very good. We’ll certainly be back to try their other menu selections!

Totally worth the money. It's huge, stuffed full to the brim. You can order online. Friendly, fast service. Fairly small place, located on the outside of the Grove Arcade facing east
