Shwarma: try this one

The Wife and I were heading home when she spotted a doner kebab maker at Hotel Sanman. [I don't know if the phone number in the link is the right one... but it sounds right] Having pulled over after the Shivaji Park petrol pump, I walked back to the man and asked what the damage would be like. He said, 'Fifty bucks. But you wont regret it.' So I ordered and watched in amazement as our man loaded a lavish amount of sizzling chicken into the nicely warm pita bread, with an appropriate slathering of hummus added in. Whoa! When we bit into the shwarma...
best effing one I have had since the ones at Arabian Nights in Priya, Delhi. And those are more fond memory than an actual taste. And it is gigantic too! You gotta try it...

Update: Since this post, the chap at Sanman has evidently been fired. Sigh.

Sounds yummy!

I'm not from Mumbai, but visit occasionally. Since I'm a foodie and am partial to middle-eastern cusine, I'd love to check this one out...

It would help if there were specifics on restaurant location included in the post.

Cheers!

Mamoun's in the Village. Slow roasted shwarma, fantastic Tzatziki and perhaps the best falafel in New York.
