  • 2 Lamb ($12)
  • 2 Salmon ($11)
  • 2 Shish-Kebab ($11)
  • 2 Chicken ($10)
  • 2 Beef ($9)
  • 1 Chicken, 1 Beef ($10)
  • Veggie ($8)

The box (combo box pictured below) comes with your seasoned meat over rice with a very very small salad, a big round piece of bread, and a yogurt sauce and a green herb sauce. The Coke was extra.
