Shwarma in Li? North Shore? Please?

I'm moving to Sea Cliff--only downside--no shwarma in sight!!
I hear there's a kosher place in Great Neck called Shish Kebab Palace that's pretty good. I think there's a place in Roslyn called Hummus World.
Does anyone know of any places?

  1. I live in Great Neck and I think Shish Kebab Palace is not that great. I am in no way an expert in Shawarma, and it's probably worth a try. I have to say that their falafel is always subpar (imho), which is disappointing since it's right down the street.

    I'm sure there must be some other places nearby, though.

      I agree, the place in great neck stinks. Small portions of not very tasty meat are served in a store bought, dry old pocket pita. Three visits was enough for me.

      1. there is a place in Syosset/Woodbury called Grills & Things....they have Shwarma and really good salads and stuff. Right on Jericho Tpke, just east of South Oyster Bay Rd.

        1. Hummus World in Roslyn is amazing. I make a point to stop there whenever I visit family on Long Island. The shwarma and falafel are both unbelievable. They also have a "schawafel" sandwich, with both scwarma and falafel.
