Two men accused of holding up a fast food restaurant and threatening a teen with a knife in Palmyra will face court today.

Police said the armed robbery happened just after 8.45am last Thursday when two men walked into the Canning Highway outlet armed with a knife.

They threatened the 18-year-old employee, demanded cash and fled the outlet after they received it.
