As far as Shawarma places go this place is one of the worst.
Nothing is fresh and they let everything sit for hours behind the counter.
Cold potatoes. Dried hard chicken. Expensive and a attitude like they want to rush you out the door.

Every time I go there I think that perhaps it was just the hour. Perhaps they never throw anything out so when i go at 8PM I am eating 2 hour old potatoes. Well last time I went at 6:30 and not only did i once again get cold hard potatoes I had a small chunk of bone in my chicken shawarma that hurt when i bit down.

BONE IN THE SHAWARMA!

Avoid this place.. There are way to many better options close by to visit.

We had two dinners at this restaurant, very strong flavors, amazing shawarma plates, the garlic dip and homous are amazing.

Horrible service. 2 hour wait for something premade. No apologies just excuses. Never order from them again. Its garbage.

Such good shawarma, However no one will EVER want to kiss you again or not for at least several months. Excellent garlic potatoes and very kind staff. A Bank street staple.

I had decided to try this place out for their chicken wings because they were cheaper than having Wild Wings. But this will be the first and last time I will get wings from them. They barely have any sauce on their wings when they serve it to you and when you do eat the wings, they are as dry as they can be.
