Brilliant

I visited this place multiple times and I think it is extremely good. The main reason is the food. I had the premium lamb kebab and the beef kebab whenever I went but I plan on trying their german sausages. The kebabs are brilliant: nicely wrapped, juicy flavor and the sauces offered really adds flavor. (If you get the premium lamb kebab, my strong recommendation is that you get the hummus sauce and the garlic yoghurt sauce because it tastes amazing.

However, if you are in a hurry do not go there unless there is no line. I went three times and it had a line twice which meant there was quite a wait those two times. I am not the only one who feels this way, the man behind me also felt the same way. There are two people working there: 1 lady working at the counter and 1 man doing the cooking and assembling of wraps. The lady at the counter is rather friendly. The man doing the cooking and assembling is not particularly smiley unless you smile at him first. However this is very minor. Also, if you need sauce for your fries, he is willing to allow you to use the same variety of sauces used for kebabs and sausages at no extra cost, with no limit.

The ambience is quite nice as you get to sit and watch as people stroll by, as Orchard Road is more than busy and hectic. The price is slightly steep however. For a kebab alone it costs between $8.50 and $10.50 and with fries and drink will amount to up to $14. German sausage is a bit cheaper though for those who do not wish to spend so much. It costs $6.80 for a sausage with salad or bun, and it costs $10.00 for sausage with salad or bun + fries + drink. Overall, extremely good experience, I highly recommend it.

So-so

Given the dearth of kebab shops in singapore, this place was a welcome sight for me. The place looks great and given that it has set up more shops, it seems singaporeans are catching on to kebabs. With regard to the food, the kebab taste was only so-so - the meat itsef was rather salty and flavours are not apparent. For the price they are charging (almost 10 bucks), the serving size, which is rather small, is not justified. It seems their target market are the tourists - which is ot a bad thing.I liked the hummus sauce the best - it saved the kebab in my opinion.

German sausage in a bun

Simply delicious! I went there to try out a German sausage. I'm not sure how close it is to a German sausage but it was delicious!

There sell three types of sausages - Chicken and Cheese, Spicy Chicken and Beef Special. I have had the latter two and it was juicy, tender and flavorsome!!! The sausage is served as a salad or in a bun. I love it in a bun. You get to choose two sauces from five: garlic yogurt, BBQ sauce, chilli ketchup, mayonnaise and English mustard. I always choose Garlic Yogurt and Mayo! The G. Sausage deal is for $6.80, but with fries and a drink, it adds up to $10.00. It's worth the money if you have a large appetite and are craving for tastefully mouth watering flavors!

It serves HALAL meat only. It might just attract more customers if they display the halal sign.

Downside -

1- LOUD MUSIC at the kiosk makes it difficult to hear the person behind the counter and you have scream back to be heard. It lasts for a painfully few minutes. I think they will still be able to attract customers if the volume was sanely low.

2-Quality of Fries is not the same as great as it was a 6months ago!

love this place

i love this place. i'm a huge fan of persian/middle eastern food, but haven't been able to find too many places like this in singapore. i live close to orchard though, and so i've eaten here a number of times. the falafel isn't freshly cooked, which is too bad, but they heat up the wrap in a panini press, which heats everything up.

Deluxe Shawarma

Good shawarma is somewhat very hard to find in Singapore. It might be because Singaporeans have not embraced this type of food yet. But there is a new kid on the block that serves this little piece of heaven in Orchard Road.

So what are the qualities that I look for in a good shawarma? For me, a worthy one should have the following traits:

- juicy and tender meat

- tangy garlic sauce

- rich hummus

- fresh onions, tomatoes and lettuce

- warm, thin bread be it a pita bread, chapati, tortilla or whatever

My first good shawarma here in Singapore was from a temporary stall set-up in Bedok near the bus interchange. That was more than 2 years ago and the people who were manning the booth were Middle Eastern guys. After that, I tried a few more stalls here and there and since those were more of disappointments rather than epiphanies, I gave up the thought of having an honest to goodness piece of shawarma here. I just accepted the fact that the shawarmas I’ve been used to will never exist in the land of chicken rice and chili crab. But that soon changed. I came across a stall along Orchard Road in front of the Forum Mall that sells these scrumptious wraps.

Named Shiraz Mazzeh, which at first reminded me of the Australian wine, it was a high-end looking stall and the design of the place including the kitchen hardware being used was well, in the pricey side, I guess. The stall was almost the size of a van and the changing neon lights looked inviting. I learned that they actually have 3 stalls around the city, the other two being in Clark Quay and Equity Plaza near Raffles MRT Station.

With luck on my side, it was Happy Hour, which was from 5:30-8:30 pm and they have a promotion of 1 for 1 German beer. I ordered 2 lamb shawarmas with hummus and garlic sauce and 2 500ml German wheat draft beer (the other one was free, of course). You can pick two from the the following available sauces: chili, ketchup (on a shawarma?), BBQ sauce, mayo, hummus and garlic yoghurt. I chose the two old reliables, hummus and garlic yoghurt. The other sauces, I surmised, would be better off with the other items on offer like German sausages. There were julliened veggies that were available and being the veggie lover that I am, opted for all of them to be included.

There was actually nothing fancy with the ‘assembly’ of the shawarma, but one thing that they did was to heat the shawarma in a press sandwich grill. I think for me, this was the thing that did the trick. The warm bread made the sandwich livelier and the dark grill marks gave the sandwich added points aesthetically. The sandwich at SGD 8.50 each was a bit pricey though, in my opinion, but since there was a scarcity of good shawarmas here, I could say that it was worth it.

Regarding ambiance, there were three chairs on the side where a bar was installed. There was also a single tall table which can be used on a first come-first served basis, or you can opt to imbibe in the prized shawarma on the exquisitely tiled benches along the pedestrian walkway of Orchard.

Recently, this has been the de facto meal we have whenever we go to Orchard. And sometimes, we even hurry to go there to avail of the free beer during Happy Hour. So whenever you are in Orchard, try partaking of this healthy, delish treat. Definitely a must try for shawarma lovers in need of a fix.
