Fantastic Shawarma! Love this place.

I've eaten at Baraka 3 or 4 times in the past year or so. It's absolutely amazing. Food is all made fresh, pitas are made in-house. It really is one of the best places to eat in Winnipeg, period. Obviously if you aren't a fan of Mediterranean food - don't go here. If you love Donair's, Shawarma, or... read more

Delicious shwarma.....you will love it! Comes with some excellent side dishes. You can eat in at the little stand up counter along the windows, or you can take out/. Lots of spicy and most delicious choices of food. I even ordered some of the pastries once and I enjoyed them immensely. Especially the ones with all the honey and flaky... More

While the outside looks a little bit rough and ugly; The food on the inside is fantastic. I've been there several times now, love the beef or lamb donair, and the chicken shawarma is one of my favourites. I often will ask for it with extra garlic sauce and some hot sauce as well. You won't regret your visit. The... More

Baraka is a great place for takeout. The restaurant gets very hot from the wood burning oven making eat in a little uncomfortable. The chicken shwarma and falafel sandwiches are excellent. There are other sandwiches and appetizer items we have yet to try.

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.
