Ottawa is a city where most commercial buildings are within throwing distance of a Shawarma restaurant. They're as common as coffee shops and more numerous than fast food chains (per chain, not in total). So when we saw a more "fancy" looking Lebanese Restaurant, we wondered how dumbed down the average Shawarma operation was and decided to give it a... More

Filet mignon is used in their beef souvlaki for $22.50. Tasty rice and Lebanese salad. Very pleased.

I took my family to this restaurant as a treat and it turned out to be a chore for the restaurant. We were a family of five. No other patrons in the restaurant, yet when we walked in no one greeted us and barely acknowledged we entered the restaurant, The prices are exorbitant for the little bit of food that... More

I am from Montreal, and if this restaurant was in Montreal it will close its doors within 1 year. I had to invite some people and I did not have a lot of choices so I choose this restaurant. We were 4 people and it is well known in Mezza, dishes must have quantities proportional to the people sitting on... More

Fantastic dining time and again. Falafels like you've never had them. Everything I've tried there is a 10+. Naji's is a must on every visit to Ottawa.

We had the Mezzes as main meal. These were the classic ones, like you get in every libanes restaurant. But this restaurant has prepared them very good and tastefull. And the lookes so great and well prepared. Also the libanese wine tasted very good to me. This restaurant has an excellent value for money. I can recomend it to everybody

I arranged a birthday celebration meal for 14 family members and couldn't have been happier with our choice of restaurants. Food was superb & the service outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

If you want a fantastic Mideastern meal served with elegance, that tastes amazing and if you may want to have a beer or wine with it (You will not get that in a low end shawarama restaurant) you should go to Naji's. This family owned restaurant shows pride in ownership and every meal is done RIGHT.
