“A lunch wow - but not to often or more gym is needed”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

I I occasionally treat myself to lunch, and armed with iPad and iPhone I go to our local in Table View.
The atmosphere does not exist, the décor is not decor just tables and chairs to use while eating.
I prefer the plate of food which has an array of fresh and appetising salads, a huge helping of shaved lamb at a reasonable price.
A great meal with no frills.

“Best lamb shawarmas in town!”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

So many fillings/sauces to choose from to add to your lamb shawarma. The falafels are also delicious! They come out hot and crunchy, buy ten and do not share! The price is decent for what you get, they also do half portions or larger portions made to order. There are tables and chairs if you wish to sit there, alternatively they do take-aways and you can walk to the promenade to eat them or in the comfort of your own home. Do try the aubergines - so delicious!

“Cheap Food When You're in a Hurry”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

This is a tiny place with seating for probably no more than 20 people; lots of the business is take-out or "carry-away", as they say in Cape Town. The shwarma was excellent and comes in three sizes, but even the smallest is very generous. It's hard to find a cheaper high-quality fast-food place to eat in Sea Point.
