Best Lunch Spot In Durham!

I took my friend here for her birthday lunch and she LOVED it! She said it was the best chicken Schwarma that she had ever had! That's high praise! I am vegan so I had falafel and it was just wonderful. I love this place and oh....did I mention how reasonable the prices are? Super cheap... read more

This is one of my "go to" spots. I've been here more times than I can count and each experience has been excellent. I've recommended Cyrus to others, the same way I was recommend to go by "No Tomatoes Larry". The chicken is excellent and my vegetarian daughter loves the Falafels. The food here has become such a huge part... More

This Iranian restauraunt has a lot of different meals to offer aside from the standard shawarma (which they do very well). A great selection of meats is offered, cooked alongside classic Iranian BBQ staples such as saffron rice, grilled tomato, tzatziki and a tasty salad. The staff is always friendly and regulars get to know the owners who are always... More

No surprise Cyrus' is now at #2 in Oshawa rankings. Best Shawarma ever! Cyrus and his wife remember every customer and what you order. Huge portions at very reasonable prices for a meal you can hardly finish.r. Fresh and home made, if I dont get there at least a few times a month I get withdrawals. Parking as mentioned can... More

I've been to this restaurant about 10 times in the past 3 years. Each time it gets better and better. Keep up the good work.

Not super good but more that ok. The food is far better that any fast food, and still affordable to change the way you eat outside.

I keep returning to this restaurant. Excellent service, freshest falafel, very reasonably priced platters. If you like Shawarma, this is the best in Oshawa. Place fills up quickly, but they also cater to pick up and take away orders.

Love this place! Anything we have tried here is great. Not a lot of options for good persian food in oshawa. Family run business should always should be supported especially when they are great at what they do.

Wow what a busy place. You can dine in (inside or outside but outside is a busy main road) Had the Vaziri Plate and chicken shawarma in a pita. The koobideh was average at best but the chicken kabob was very good. The rice was bland but the salad was very fresh and good. Chicken shawarma was great and this... More
