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.

I am a huge Shawarma fan and regularly eat chicken Shawarma's for lunch, or dinner. Today, I chose to visit Shawarma Palace on Carling for the first time and I surely will be going back to this restaurant. I ordered the large chicken sandwich and there was so much chicken, I was amazed. Instead of placing the sandwich in a... More

Had a shawarma plate here - the food was decent, and tasty. I asked for it spicy, but the meat was not very spicy - at least it was tasty. I found the service here to be lacking and unfriendly - like they were doing you a favour by serving you in their restaurant. I am unsure as to whether... More

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
