Looking for Shwarma in SFV

Pita Kitchen on SW corner of Van Nuys and Ventura, just south of the newspaper stand is quite good, although they rush you with the order, and it's tiny. Cash only!

Adios knefe

Was going to also recommend Hayats Grill in North Hollywood.

Mantee is great for a more upscale/going-on-a-date restaurant - quite good.

Describe your ideal coffee house...

Ditto for the recommendation of Gelato Bar in Studio City. They make a great cup of coffee (bit of variability based on the barista on hand, but quite good on average), and is a pleasant place to stay, with no loud music.

The gelato is likewise wonderful - and the afogato which combines them is really truly decadent, though it's advised to get a neutral-ish compatible flavor (hazelnut, chocolate, straciatella, etc.).

sushi help in woodland hills

Shibuya in Calabasas is the best sushi I know of around Woodland Hills. Maybe 10 minutes away. Never considered them by the size of their rolls (there's a pun in there somewhere) but they're highly recommended!
