The Best Lebanese Food in Cebu City. Such a cozy place to be. Very accommodating owner and crew. Everything we ordered were very delicious down to the last bite. We will come back for more palate-pleasing experience.

Tried the beef shawarma rice, chicken shawarma wrap, and cheesy sambousek. All items ordered were excellent to taste and I finished it all! Mind you I went solo so I felt like I was about to burst from food coma. My favorite by far was...the yogurt based garlic sauce which went w/ the sambousek but I drizzled it over everything anyway. The interior is cozy with the vivid patterns of the Arabic tiles and textures. Staff were great and I did not have to wait long for food to get served. Got some dates for takeout which I have yet to try. Will order a bottle of that garlic sauce when I go back and the baklava sounds interesting. Did not order desert since I was so full. Location is convenient and easy to find. There's parking space available tooMore

My girlfriend has never eaten shawarma in Cebu because most shawarma places weren't appealing for her. That was until we finally went to Shawarma Gourmet. Their food tasted great and it's also the first time we've tried authentic shawarma. We also talked to Mike, the...owner, and he was super duper kind about us trying out his food. The only bad thing about the entire experience is that we couldn't try out the other food because we were too full. Definitely ordering here again!More

The food is good but nothing special. The quantity is really small and the prices are quite high. We were disappointed and wouldn't recommend it.

Amazing taste. Had the chicken shawarma. Super clean. Portion smaller than i anticipated so order more not less. It's in a plaza off the main street.
