Discover the taste of Israel

Authentic, glatt kosher Middle Eastern cuisine awaits you at Shawarma Shabazi. From our signature shawarma to classic falafel, our menu is a tribute to the rich culinary heritage of Israel.

Shawarma Shabazi was created mainly for takeout and deliveries. However, we allow Shabazi customers to dine inside the premises of Talia’s Steakhouse (as long as there is an available table), which is next door. There is no wait service for Shabazi diners.

Shawarma Shabazi is open from 11:15 AM to 12 AM. For Friday and Saturday, we have special hours of operation:

Friday: 11:15 AM to 6:30 PM (or about 1 hour before Shabbat)

Saturday: 10 PM (or about 1 hour after Shabbat) to 3 AM.

About us

We are proud to bring you a dining experience that’ll transport you straight to the streets of Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, right here in the heart of New York City.

We are not your ordinary eatery. Shawarma Shabazi is a labor of love from the team at Talia’s Steakhouse & Bar, the premier glatt kosher restaurant on the Upper West Side. As a result of the pandemic, inflation and rising kosher meat costs, Talia’s decided to repurpose its bar area into a fast-casual eatery, perfect for affordable takeout, that is born from our deep passion for authentic flavors and vibrant cultures. 

Named after the Tel Aviv neighborhood of Shabazi (after the Yemenite poet, Rabbi Shalom Shabazi), Shawarma Shabazi’s mission is to evoke the feelings of eating hearty Middle Eastern on the streets of Israel.
