    This place has its fantastic reputation for a reason! It's really tasty and it'd be hard to name a favourite but from personal preference I recommend the Schich Tawuk. :) But all meat is great here!😊

    The Maroush Teller (plate) is massive and comes with some of everything: kefta, chicken kebab, chicken shish, habouli cheese, stuff grape leaves, fries , hummus , eggplant, salad! Highly recommend!

    We had Falafel and Chicken Shawerma both in pies. The falafel was great, but the chicken was apocalyptic, he added in the pie sesame paste except the vegetables and gave me a sweet heart attack!!!

    Always amazing, after all these years. Definitely the best lebanese food around. Try the mixed platter with everything in it it's about 8€ and it feed 2 or 3!

    Nice place to share a table with strangers and dig into your schwarma plate. Depending on when you arrive, you might be in for a bit of a wait in line to order.

    The food was so tasty and fulfilment here, even my always hungry husband was perfectly satisfied after couple of hours we ate there. Vegans are also welcome, and the service is very friendly. Yay!!!

    Mouroush Teller is delicious and enormous portion! Come hungry! Options for vegans too. Not much seating space but the food makes up for it.

    Outstandingly fragrant and savoury Falafel sandwiches, perfectly seasoned and made to order. Tastes better than anywhere around in the area. exceptional Seasoning, sauces and bread - all for the win.

    I tried chicken Shawerma as sandwich and also a Falafel plater...Shawerma is very good and original but try not treat it as a Döner (dont fill it up with salad). The falafel was ok.

    Their sawarma sandwiches are very satisfying. The falafels have a very distinct tast, so try the Teller instead of the sandwich!
