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.

Three of us shared vegetarian appetizers, salad, one wrap platter and a baklava. The classics, humus and tabouli, were as good as I've enjoyed anywhere in the world. The falafel was outstanding -- we had no regrets about ordering it two ways: as an appetizer and in the wrap. Thanks to the other reviewers for recommending the baklava because it... More

I'm an Ottawa native, now living in the US, but I visit often to see family. Years ago, my favourite Lebanese restaurant in Ottawa was Kamal's, which burned years ago, reopened, and then closed for good. Ever since, I've been searching for a falafel sandwich that was as good as Kamal's. FINALLY I've found it at Naji's!!! This is always... More

Recently, for my birthday, I was craving Lebanese food. We ordered take-out with an assortment of menu items and it was absolutely divine. I'm looking forward to visiting the restaurant as I crave more of the delicious food.

All three people at our table had either lamb, shrimp or beef kabobs. The food was nice - not out of this world, and probably I say that because the meat was tender and nicely spiced, but the large bed of rice it came on was rather oily. I guess that is just personal preference on my part. The salad... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We had very good falafal wraps (perhaps the best falafal I have ever had) along with some fatoush (lebanese salad with pita crisps) and tabouleh. The portion was just right for dinner and the quality of the food was very good. The server was very helpful and friendly. The restaurant does not have... More

The sandwiches are good but not exceptional. The appetizers and main meals are to die for. The shish and chicken kabobs are like org-s-ms on a plate. Everything is made from scratch and is absolutely like nothing else in Ottawa.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We visited as a result of purchasing a discount coupon on Wag Jag. We learned that the restaurant is about 14 months old and was opened during the long re-construction of Bank St. The restaurant struggled during those months but now seems to be enjoying good patronage. The restaurant caters to the... More

While the food is very good it is really the service that impressed us the most. We also found the prices fair and the decor simple, but pleasant.
