Best Middle Eastern food in London! Great value for a quick lunch or dinner, not fine dining, it is more casual but the food is delicious!

Consistent with taste & quality, though not as good as 5 years ago.

The service, the decoration and layout of restaurant are all terrible. The shawarama is not fresh as they already made a lot of it before and try to push customers to buy those prepared. They also never provide a spoon, knife or fork and and if you ask them these things, they offer you by hesitation. As a customer, we really feel the service is terrible.

If anyone think the food here is great, I suggest drive two hours to Toronto or Windsor and find the real taste of Shawarama.

Good shawarma. I've tried both the chicken and beef, and both are tasty and contain sufficient meat. The prices are good. The place is clean. The atmosphere is that of a busy sandwich shop.

This is very casual and self-serve but there are tables. The choices are all based on Lebonese cooking. There is no menu - look at the signs and choose, The food is as good and a great value. The people at the counter are not friendly - they want to know your order and they want you to pay for it. Then they have someone make it and you walk it to your table. I enjoyed the meal - a nice busy place for a quick and good meal.
