we had the wraps and they were delicious. The service is prompt and friendly. This is a take out place only so remember that.

Lebanese restaurant. Small and unassuming, but generous (food to service). Prompt service. Fresh and delicious food. Clean. Very good value in all (paid 9,50$ for a large sandwich, tax included).

My wife and I had lunch with our young kids. Much more of a "to go" place as there is an extremely limited amount of seating (and don't even think about bringing a stroller inside). The chicken shawarma was good, but I didn't think it was significantly better than other places. I was actually more impressed with the falafel, relative... More

Located mere minutes away from many downtown hotels, tourist spots & nightclubs; nimble feet only, as there is one huge step to climb before entering (delivery is available, though). The shawarma is also very cramped, with limited standing space, and seating for about a dozen patrons. However, this is offset by delicious foodstuffs, pleasant & colourful to both the eyes... More

Tastes good but very messy. The owner is extremely friendly. Try the rolled vine leaves. Worth the price.

I used to live in Ottawa and always really enjoyed the shwarma at this little 'hole in the wall'. On a recent visit back to the city I stopped by and it didn't dissappoint. The chicken shawarma was DELICIOUS and the gracious owenr provided a side of the potatoes which were incredible. It is such good comfort food and well... More

The spicy garlic sauce and sweet sauce is the best we've ever tried. Portion size is reasonable for the price and the workers are so friendly. This week be our go-to shawarma place when visiting Ottawa!

After a long train ride we got into our hotel late. Ran to LCBO and bought some wine and headed here. Perfect shawarma from this hole in a wall. Also picked up some potatoes and garlic sauce. Hot fresh and tasty... Place was busy ... Don't go foe the decor.. Just the food. Great!
