After the first time my husband ate a shawarma from Tarek's his garlicky breath literally brought tears to my eyes. But now, as long as we're both eating there at the same time, we love popping into Tarek's for some tasty, colourful food! I love that there's so many fresh vegetables on everything and that the kitchen is on display... More

Stop by nearly every week and are always impressed. Soup given to those waiting for food is a great addition. Best chicken shawarma pita in the city.

My favourite meal at Tarek's is the half and half shwaharma dinner. It has both spiced marinated chicken and beef, a tasty salad, a side rice dish and flat bread. Though it looks rather large, it is perfectly proportioned for an evening meal. I have enjoyed this many times and it never disappoints.

This is by far the best food in HRM! Vegetarians will have lots to choose from. Love the menu, friendly service and of course the free soup while you wait for your order.

Healthy, clean, unique, and tasty. Good prices. The owner is nice, and the soups are excellent. Everything is made fresh. The experience of eating there makes me go back once a month!

If you like different healthy food, eat here. Many people I know like it very much. I had a sandwich here and it was great. However, I am not into the healthiest scene so some of the foods I didn't know. It has a great menu for different types and I think if you are into this type of food,... More

I live quite close to there and have been there a few times. I go because it's convenient. Quite often there are a number of people just hanging around.

Got hooked on this place a few years ago when a friend made me go with her. This spot is alittle cramped but great for takeout. Cant wait for the newest location to open on Herring Cove Rd where KFC used to be.
