Located within the vicinity of the West Bay petrol station, this café is a popular pit-stop to grab a quick takeaway for lunch or dinner. The lamb chops and mix grills were quite OK and portion of side dishes were quite plenty. Shawarma was so-so,...More

Garlic sauce in this place is a must-try. Shawarmas are really good. However, I have always had issues with digesting the meat shawarma from here. The grilled chicken is a little too dry.

Royal Istanbul does what it says on the tin. Fresh food grilled and served with no fuss. The mixed grill is excellent and will definitely fill you up. Nothing fancy here but good honest food.

This place is great. Quick service and friendly staff. The shawarmas are amazing and they offer other dishes as well - whole/half chicken, curries and rice etc. Great for getting a quick bite on the way home.
