A Story Flavored with Love

The name of our restaurant was inspired by a dreamy and intoxicating folk song about a Palestinian girl who fell deeply in love with a boy from Safad, Palestine. As he boarded a ship to Italy, the two young lovers were forced to say goodbye. They would spend years longing for each other and waiting for their love to return.

Through Ruzana, we strive to bring you the stories, culture, and cuisine of the Middle East.

Love their chicken shawarma. The staff is very welcoming. The food tastes just like it does back home. It is worth the drive from Sunnyside to Brooklyn.

“Amazing food! Best shawarma I’ve ever had outside of the Middle East. Make sure you ask for the garlic sauce because it’s out of this world. If you’re reading this, it’s worth it to go. Trust me.”

“The best shawarma in all of Bay Ridge! The baba ganoush is to die for. The way they wrap their sandwiches is so precise. It makes for an organized, delectable sandwich!”
