The basic ingredient is garlic and that is not for me - why cant they cook without it? Not sure I will go again

I believe everyone deserves a second opportunity. Last order from this restaurant took an hour and a half to arrive and my order today had 2 main course items missing for a family of 4 . Definitely worth a miss if you not keen on...overpriced soggy & cold food. Cheers Shwarma coMore

We visited as a large family group, so I got to see a variety of meals. The salads were fresh and tasty, and the schwarmas were generous. Probably the best I have eaten. It is well worth a return visit. Good value for money. The...parking in Norwood can be difficult during busy times.More

The salad bar is better than most and the Schwarmas are more akin to what you would find in Europe. The fillet Schwarma was great, the chicken was a bit dry, but still pretty good overall.

Ordered the meze sharing platter with a few extra falafels and pitas as a takeaway. The salads were fresh and flavorful. The falafels moist and fresh. Service and packaging was excellent.

These guys rose form humble beginnings...I never knew their story until we took over some European visitors and the owner then told us their story. The meat is GREAT. The choice for vegetarians is great too. Their food is quality guaranteed!!!!! We are there all...the time.More

We came here with family and many family members insist on getting schwarma here every time we are in Joburg! There are other options on the menu if you aren't into schwarma that are pretty delicious as well. The staff are very friendly and accommodating....Highly recommend!More

What a delightful place! The seasoning for the beef in my shawarma was authentic. The "salads" were fresh, service was great, and the place itself was a breath of fresh air.

The Schwarma Co is one of my favourite places to get a Schwarma, with a variety of fillings. Friendly staff and good atmosphere. Simply delicious!
