We go at least once a month to Baraka. I just have to say Baraka and the kids head to the car. The chicken shwarma is excellent. Wonderfully cooked in front of you. Authentic. Sauce is exceptional. Slightly runny so be careful. Finish it with chocolate baklava. Amazing. Kitchy and cheap. Love the place and recommend to all my friends... More

Went for dinner at this restaurant last fall for the first time, the food was good but the atmosphere was not so hot. The tables were dirty and they were 3 staff on hand and 4 people in the restaurant but we had to grab some napkins and clean the table ourselves. The restaurant was very cold inside, we had... More

There are a couple of other Lebanese restaurants in town, but this one is my favourite by a landslide. The chicken shawarma has to be my regular choice on the menu. It's pretty huge, so go hungry! Everything always tastes fresh and consistent. Love this small local business.

Friendly, family run place that never disappoints when you are looking for tasty falafel. They also have shawarma selections if you are looking for meaty choices. They bake the pita fresh in-store and they also have a small grocery section so you can pick up items to try making Lebanese food at home. I nice, toasty warm place to spend... More

Had lunch at Baraka's today, Oct. 29th, on the recommendation of some friends. We tried the Chicken Shwarma, with a finely chopped parsley sauce, whose name I just can't remember. The result was a wrap that tasted great, with some heat as well! We really enjoyed this dish, and noticed all the choices on the menu looked and smelled great.... More

Had the hummus pita, which was dry and lacking in flavour (a little heat, but little else) My friends had the lamb and chicken, which was reportedly good, but not a great deal at around $8.

Went for lunch with friends on August 2. The place was packed but the staff moved to quickly fill eat in and take out orders. While we waited I was offered a sample of a spinach filled pastry that was delicious. I had a chicken shwarma, full of meat with a yummy garlic sauce and salty pickled turnip (sounds weird,... More

Ordered lamb combo. Delish. Picked up hummus and father to go. Absolutely filling. HummUS comes in a couple flavours, chose the regular.very garlicky and addictive.

Love the food, love the guys that make the food, fantastic Lebanese food at a reasonable price, whenever we feel like something other than the regular fast food fare, we go to Baraka, it's local, tasty and the owners are friendly and out to ensure that everyone has a tasty experience.

The food may come on disposable plates but the taste is far from disposable. The offerings cover a wide range, enough to satisfy vegans or carnivores, and the quality and quantity are truly satisfactory. There is also a range of hummus for take away, with delightful additions such as sun-dried tomato or red pepper for that extra flavour. Desserts, resonant... More
