Really delicious. Lots of sauce on the shawarma, nice fresh veggies...it was a hit with the kids. Reasonable prices and good location.

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!

Had chicken shawarma, it was better than any other shawarma I've had before. Would definitely recommend this place and will visit again.

With 300 Shawarma places in Ottawa, it is tough to know where to go. In the downtown area alone there are places on every corner. We went to tripadvisor and read the reviews on the Castle. This place did not disappoint. The place is really small, and not much to look at from the outside. The warm welcome we received... More

The location is pretty tiny, but the service is great. The shawarma and falafels were delicious. Price was reasonable.

Just had a terrific shawarma (chicken). It was very tasty. I had the large for $8.75. It was well worth it. We were offered a soup sample. I have to say it was delicious. While I did not order a bowl of soup I will order one on my next visit....and there will be many visits! Seating is limited. The... More

If you like Lebanese food this is the place to go. Excellent Shawarma, garlic sauce is amazing. Good prices fast service. Recommend takeout. The area is a bit dodgy. I would say in general Ottawa has the best Shawarma restaurants.

Having travelled in the Middle East often, I'm often disappointed by the variations of shwarmas made in Canada. But not this one. Tasty, properly seasoned, good portion of veggies. And great friendly service.
