Bad Business Owner. Full of Pride. Shameful behaviour. Don't buy from them.Tell others to do not patronise them and there business.

Food is absolutely PHENOMENAL. Flavourful, made with care its just so good anything if say would I think be doing it a disservice. Enough said, me and my friend dined there daily during our stay, because it was truly the perfect ending of the day.

Small portions, average taste. We had high hopes and were hoping to go back during our several days in Cebu City but it is a pass for me.

Shawarma Gourmet is one of the best restaurants to eat in Cebu. I always enjoy the many choices they have. I can order a simple salad or go all out on a shawarma platter. The customer service is really good. And I always like it...when the chef and owner comes to me and ask how the food was. I can give feedback right away and they are more than happy to tell me the ingredients that go into the food I ordered. I am more than happy to share this place with my friends. If you are visiting Cebu City, please drop by Shawarma Gourmet and experience delicious Lebanese - Mediterranean Food. You are going to love it.More

Hello, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your kind words and recommendation.

Hello, #Kalaminions! Let me tell you about my favorite when it comes to solving my Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cravings: Shawarma Gourmet! This place is my go-to spot whenever my taste buds scream for some exotic flavors. Situated at Escario Central, Shawarma Gourmet is a...paradise for anyone who loves good food. And let me tell you, it's not just about their mouthwatering Shawarma. Nope! They've got a whole array of amazing dishes like Hummus, Kibbeh, Tabbouleh, Sambousek, Baklava, Falafel, Baba Ganoush, and more. It's like stepping into a Middle Eastern feast! Oh, and those breads! They're just wow! Freshly baked and oh-so-delicious. They perfectly complement every dish they serve. Now, here's the exciting part! They've added platters to their menu, and that includes the Khabsa tray. It's a match made in take-out heaven! Perfect for those times when you want to indulge in their flavors from the comfort of your home. If you're planning to visit with a group of friends or family, trust me, their Manakish or Lebanese Pizza is a surefire crowd-pleaser. Everyone's taste buds will thank you! The best part, though, is the owners. They're the friendliest people you'll ever meet! Their warm hospitality makes the whole experience even better. You'll feel like part of their food-loving family. So, if you find yourself in Cebu and craving some authentic Lebanese and Middle Eastern delights, Shawarma Gourmet is the spot to be. Trust me, it's a food journey you won't want to miss!More

We thought the dinner was very good. We had chicken shawarma and it was very well prepared. The regular hummus was very tasty. The fatoush salad was very authentic. Definitely recommend a visit. Not fancy, but good food.

Had the most amazing chicken shawarma here, it was really saucy and the chicken was very juicy. It looked very small at first (I got the regular size) but it still filled me up! Mansur (one of the partners) was so lovely and talkative. We’ll...definitely come back if we’re ever in Cebu againMore

Flavorful and good food minus the guilt. With healthily delicious food and vegetarian options, your snacking and eating out no longer has to compromise your diet. Whenever I crave for an Authentic Lebanese Restaurant in Cebu, Shawarma Gourmet is the first restaurant that comes into...mind. A personal favorite of mine is their spiced fries and premium falafel wrap. Most especially their perfectly rich blend of garlic sauces.More

I was on a business trip in Cebu and was craving for Arabic food. We visited shawarma gourmet for lunch and I have to admit that I had one of the best Arabic food outside Middle East. The hospitality and customer service of Mr Mansour...Houran (owner) and his staff was simply exceptional. The food tasted so authentic and delicious. Shawerma , chicken Taouk , Hummos , peta bread and kebbah all tasted amazing. Resturant is small but well organized and maintained. They also serve shisha. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are craving for Arabic food.More

As often when I go to cebu I take food at Shawarma, food is correct and it's very proper place, but timing is crazy : I waited more than 25 minutes just for a single shawarma at noon time, with only 2 clients inside.
