I came here for lunch and ordered a plate with vegetarian samosas. The hummus was delicious and I ate it with a spoon, but I found the samosas to be pretty doughy, the beets way too acidic, and the eggplant curry was just bad. They have lots of salad options for you to choose from, so it's possible that I... More

Best pitas I've ever eaten...and the buffet was an incredible value, too. Used to go here all time the time when visiting Waterloo.

Best garlicky hummus in town. Gets expensive though when you buy the small container of hummus and the pita bread to go along with it. Great for an appetizer treat once in awhile. Tried their vegetarian samosas, just okay. You can visit them at the Waterloo market in 2 locations there. Always good and fresh hummus!

This was our first time there and both employees were very helpful and friendly. We have eaten at other pita places, but not too sure what they offered. She ran through the process and what the items were and let us look at a menu. It took about 5 mins to make our pitas fresh. Each order was made fresh... More

I tried their shawarma, and found that it worth to what you are spending but not great. So, it will fill you if you are hungry but don't expect more.

I love AlMadina. I go there everytime to get a chicken shawarma plate. They give the biggest portions ever. My boyfriend and I have to share because it is such a big plate. They are also very generous with the sauces. I recommend getting warm salads for the two sides, they are warm bean salad, and chick pea salad. They... More

Great food, especially the wraps (shwarma and chicken divine). The food is always very fresh and there is a variety of sides and toppings to choose from. They have a takeout table with items such as samosas and other yummy treats. The only negative I have for this place is the price. It is a bit pricy, but very good!... More

The only thing great about this place is that they are open late, so you can enjoy a shawarma after a hard nights clubbing. The price can be lowered a bit but then again I guess that money goes to the workers working that late shift.

Best buffet EVER. I've seen my husband eat a platter of baklava there. Great for vegetarians. I love their hummus!
