    After being in The US for more than 2 years, Afrah has the best chicken shawarma, and the most similar-in-taste chicken shawarma to those in Saudi Arabia. They serve Ice Cream, and Arabic desserts .

    Chicken shawarma grilled on the spit comes out a little on the dry side but there's a garlic and tahini sauce to balance it out. Portions are large. Bread is soft and yummy. I'll be back. Enjoy!

    This restaurants is one among the best middle eastern food I've tried outside of the Middle East. I've tried the shish tawook with hummus, Basmati white rice, and Fattoush salad. They all taste good.
  • Alex G.
    Great for large groups (20+ people) as there is a ton of seating area. Lots of options for food, including many tasty vegetarian choices. A bit pricey, but everyone can agree on Afrah for lunch.

    Sitting outside during nice weather is perfect but beware- many go for hookah as well. It doesn't take away from the amazing food but be prepared for that environment!

    If its nice out, try to sit outside. Pros= The food is the best Arabic in town by far. I love the hummus and chicken shwarma. Cons= the bathrooms are never clean. The service is horrible.
