Friendly, clean, tasty, excellently priced, do I need to say more. A real culinary jewel. Wish that place would be closer to my home.

You'll be surprised - or maybe not - to find that some of the best shwarma you've ever had comes from a corner shop that looks like any one of a million other little comedores (eateries) in the Latin world. A fast-paced counter and bar occupy the interior, while plastic patio furniture provide outside seating. We planned to eat dinner there, but the smell of adjacent motorcycle parking turned us off.

Fortunately, we came back for lunch and were treated to a super tasty shwarma. The right balance of salty meat, spicy sauce and creamy hummus made for a delicious meal ready to travel down to the beach.

Bottom line - tasty and inexpensive food served in a pretty non-descript locale. If you're looking for ambience, take your food to go.

Sultan is the only truly great place for Middle Eastern dishes such as shwarma, pita and hummus in Puerto Escondido. The chef makes everything in the kitchen so it is fresh and flavorful. The restaurant is a little place with a few outside tables on the Rinconada. Perfect for a quick bite to eat when you want a change. Not an expansive menu but what they serve is very good.

I ate many times at El Sultan in Puerto Escondido. it's really tasty, the service is perfect and we did not wait. moreover the street is really cool you need to walk around and El Sultan is perfect to have lunch before going at the wonderful Beach Carrizalillo.
i recommend this restaurant, it's the best humus I never ate and it's really cheap.
a warm welcome and a very nice moment.

great food, but our 2 orders came 20 minutes apart. I would also have imagined they would have more vegetarian options..
