Stopped by here after touring Northeastern and it was so yummy. This is not a fancy place at all but the food was fresh and delicious and the portions were enormous. The sandwiches in pita bread were delicious and the baba ghanoush was excellent. This place is a college kids dream for a hearty and healthy meal for a reasonable... More

I stopped in between classes while at Northeastern. Great quick meal! Very filling and the soda was free with the purchase of a meal. The food was fresh, and very enjoyable. If in the NEU area, definitely worth a visit!

On our first visit, last month, my husband and I did not realize they offer dinners, and we ordered our food in pita bread sandwiches. I am NOT a sandwich fan, so when, as we were leaving, we noticed the "dinner" menu, we made a note to come back - which, yesterday, we did. I ordered a shawarma dinner with... More

The meats and chicken are halal. Sandwiches are huge. The children shawarma was pretty good. Friendly staff. My complaint would be is that when you bite the sandwich, the toppings are to one side from the chicken. So there were rarely any bites that had everything. It was either a bite of chicken or toppings. I guess it needs better... More

Food is fantastic, I split the shawarma dinner with lamb which came with tahini, rice, and two kinds of hummus. Generous portions, quick and friendly staff.

Loved that you get a free drink with every order. Although for the price paid the restaurant was a little cramped up. Best for takeout.

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighbourhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
