Have been to this location and Rideau street. This location is newer and looks great! The food is the same quality and great choice for those that love Middle Eastern food. It's quick, fresh and very reasonably priced.

Want to savour the delights of the Middle East Arab culinary feasts then visit this excellent restaurant. The location is conveniently located near a movie theatre, the Bayshore major shopping mall, bus stops and a vibrant Middle East community. There is a wide selection of Arab cuisine all of which is prepared onsite using fresh ingredients. I particularly recommend the... More

My boyfriend and I walked past here one day and had to try it. The smell from outside was wonderful and made us both hungry. We shared a platter that had chicken, beef, two kinds of rice and various sauces/vegetables. It was delicious! The place was packed and it took a little while to get our food (about 10-15 minutes),... More

This is the best shawarma I have ever been to. The portions are huge, so you need to share. Mixed chicken and beef shawarma cost $13 and it was hellll awesome and delicious!

We eat Shawarma quite regularly and have a couple of places we regularly frequent. I had heard this place was good so I googled best shawarma in Ottawa and this came up multiple times. It's true-the servings are huge and quality is excellent. We always share a mixed plate (hubby and myself) and sometimes we feel like there wasn't enough... More

We wanted to try chicken shawarma before we left Ottawa. So we went to the Shawarma Palace at 2440 Bank Street. It's not a seat down restaurant, but the atmosphere is great. We waited approx. 30 minutes in line, but I gotta say it was well worth the wait. The staff behind the counters were great. Very happy to be... More

When it comes to Ottawa and Shawarmas, we seem to have a vendor on every corner. Some are good, some are bad (and some are very very bad). The Shawarma Palace is the absolute in Shawarma experience (and if you don't believe me, ask my Dad, he eats 4 a week). The Restauraunt is clean, the food is fantastic, and... More

This is my favourite place in all of Ottawa when it comes to shawarma. I love their potatoes because they're the only place that doesn't serve them in a puddle of grease.

They had a big menu with lots of choices. Great tasting food and fast service. Although we had take-out the restaurant was big with clean and comfortable seating.
