Quick, yummy, filling and fresh

We were here to grab a quick lunch. Was surprised with the pace of service and the nice options. It offers great falafel shawarma for vegetarians. Only flip side is no credit card support but you can use debit cards. Have great juice options like guava and mango. There is also ample parking spaces.

Great fast service, if you've never had shawarma, this is a great place to try it since they make it super yummy here! Falafels were OK

I goto this restaurant on a regular basis for these reasons: the staff are very friendly and efficient; the food is always fresh; they serve good serving sizes as requested by customers; custom orders are a specialty; sharing a plate of food is welcomed; and, they are close to my home. My favourite is the chicken plate at $13.95 -... More

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
