I will never go to a Shawarma again until . . .

I occasionally order a Shawarma meal at the outlet connected to a Burger King at the corner of West Hunt Club and Merivale Road where I eat lunch every weekday.

Fresh and delicious! Simply best chicken shawarma in Ottawa! There's a line for good reason and it moves quickly thanks to the amazing staff. Oh the garlic sauce. Heaven.

Best chicken shawarma in the city. Have stopped in several times on the way to the Cineplex theaters. Friendliest service I've seen in a long, long time. The garlic sauce is deviously exceptional (don't sit too close too strangers when you go to the movie), the portions are very good. A small shawarma is sufficient, a large, you would need... More

One of the best places to get a sharwarma in the city. To be warned, they get really busy around lunch but it is worth it. Like all sharwarma palaces, their serving size is large. You are sure to have leftovers to tale home with you. The meat is wonderfully moist and the potatoes w/ garlic are to die for.... More

This restaurant is located in the West End of Ottawa in the Bayshore area. It used to be a Harvey's, as evidenced by the delightful burger-shaped sign. The portions are large, the meat is excellent, and the service is good. When we go to town, we always head there. Having eaten at many middle eastern restaurants, this is one of... More

My wife and I eat Lebanese food often and have been to this location several times and it has always been excellent. The portions are big and the quality is very good. This time we tried the rainbow trout meal along with our regular chicken plate. Wow, it was worth the extra few minute wait for prep. We will definitely... More

Have enjoyed the "new" Carling Street location and the original Rideau Street location several times over the past few years. Always go for the chicken shawarma platter and one order is enough for two, or with two orders and a take-away box we have lunch the next day. Have tried other shawarma places, but always return here as our favorite.

Where should I start? The chicken is always soooo perfectly seasoned and fresh. The garlic sauce is always so garlicky. The hummus always the right consistency and flavour. And the pitas.... Absolutely the best pitas out there. The small pitas are soooooooo chewy the dough has gotta be handled just right by hand(or some amazing machine). You won't realize how... More

This restaurant gives you hummus, and meat on pita, with veggies, olive oïl, and backlava for desert. It's a huge serving of greatness. If you like eating exotic food, it's the place to eat at while in Ottawa. Get the adress into your GPS, and get there.
