Village Voice's Description

If you know the original location on Brooklyn's Coney Island Avenue of this Israeli restaurant, you'll be amazed at the sumptuous decor of its garment center outpost, and that improvement extends to the food as well. Centerpiece of any meal is the outsized sesame-dotted pita that flies from the tandoor, deposited hot at your table and replenished whenever you finish the last one. The kebabs are splendid (pick baby chicken or Iraqi lamb instead of the unexciting schwarma). You are well advised to substitute unlimited visits to the salad bar for the choice of two sides on the menu. Open till midnight.

Tips from foursquare

  • Mike D. on 06/21/10

    if you order any of the sandwiches with "everything" they put french fries in it

  • Bryan on 08/20/10

    Great pita bread for the appetizers. But the pita for the sandwiches is disappointing in comparison. Stick with the plates or laffa.

  • Iam J. on 07/17/13

    I was really craving for a shawarma for lunch and it's the closest place to have one from where I work. But the service is so slow it took 30 min, & the food is alright but not worth with the price.

  • Serious Eats on 03/15/13

    Kosher cafe with Middle Eastern specialties like shawarma, kebabs, and pretty decent falafel, available on pita or chewy laffa flatbread.

    Shawarma Laffa was good; tasted just like home. Humus, cheeps, salat ve ktsat hareef bevakasha!
