    Pro tip: they'll sell you a bag of 5 pitas for $5, and they're better than the hard flat ones you get at grocery stores (although still not as thick and fluffy as they should be).

    Portions are huge, def recommend sharing. Shish Kabab lamb was delicious. Hummus with shawerma dish-- lamb was a bit dry. Everything is very filling! The Warbat for dessert is gooood.

    Don't get the wraps, you can't get decent lavash in SF and they're no exception. Plus, the other dishes come with some pretty decent pita bread.

    Bright mezzes and all the staples like lamb kebaps - they're huge portions and a great South Mission joint for those foggy nights.

    Yum - got the Qudsiyah (hummus with foul) and combo plate (Shish tawouk and kebab were great, the lamb a bit too tough)

    If you want to extra impress, order the Mossabaha, a chunky, spicy hummus that's topped with olive oil and served with house-made bread. Read more

    Order a dozen falafel balls, baba ghanoush, and hummus to go. Take it home and make your own awesome falafel sandwiches.

    Avoid. It's most probably too far away from wherever you usually hang out. The place is small and of medium to low quality in everything.

    Feta with meat is what you should order. Has pieces of pita in the hummus. What I always get when I come.

    The Hummus is usually exceptional but it could vary with age. For best results early lunch will do
