If you are looking for great options on a sandwich, good service and some really reasonable prices in a tourist area this is the shop for you. We stumbled in here and had 2 different sandwiches and the man behind the counter helped us to pick something delicious. It's small but they make everything fresh by hand and you can... More

Sometime, when travelling, you're looking for unpretentious, simple and cheap food. And this is one of the best kebab I ever had. Even here, in my city Montreal, we have tons of kebab restaurant, I havent taste any nearly as good as those. Simple, cheap, and very friendly. Full of locals on evenings with a lot of ambiance!

Oh my oh my. I've never ever in my entire life tasted something so bad. I have no idea why this place is so popular at tripadvisor. Worst kebab I've ever tasted. Please take my tip and avoid this place.

This is the best pita we had so far. It's very tasty and could taste the freshness of the ingredients. I will love to visit again.

I can't believe I lived around the corner from here for two months already and hadn't tried it. Wow. My fiance brought me a kebab from here (at least that's what i think it was) and it was amazing. First, it was wrapped in a perfect crispy pita, rather than the mediocre wrap found so often in the center. The... More

I've eaten kebabs all over the world, I can honestly say, these kebabs are the best. Everything is homemade from the bread to the hummus, babaganush, falafels and the gyros of meat which he marinades on the premises. There is always a convivial atmosphere as the owner is very friendly and funny. Order "uno fatto bene" or "garantito" and he... More

We have eaten here twice in a couple of days. The owner is very nice. The food was delicious and reasonably priced.
