Went there as this place was recommended. The shawarma is good, the sauce could need some improvement. Shadow terrace, the owner makes sure you enjoy your stay.

Abraham, the owner, is quite the character. He mans the grill, greets the customers, checks on the table, and offers up tasty, home cooked food. The shawarma was nicely spiced, and the side dishes (potatoes, salad, etc.) were very fresh and appetizing. The pita bread is not to be missed. How do they get such fresh pita bread on St.... More

We read the reviews and had to try it. We walked in and it was busy but we ordered and got a table. We quickly realized that most people there did not yet have food. It took 50 min for our food to arrive. We were very hungry by then. The food is very good. The meat is a little... More

Excellent food and friendly service. Very affordable Wine/Dinner deals. Come hungry because you'll get a lot of food when served. Owner checks on each customer to ensure a good experience. Not a fancy place, but definitely worth going. We'll be back.

The owner is really nice and the food was really good and cheap. My wife and I were the first ones to arrive that day and he recommended that we get the special shawarma. It was amazing and best of all it was a lot of food for a really good price.

My very first take out meal I had when I moved to this island was a lamb shawarma from Little Jerusalem. It was love at first bite. I have been coming here religiously at least once a week. The lamb shawarma is the tastiest I have ever had and is always seasoned to perfection. I hope Abraham and Cathy never... More
