“Really good, but hard to find AND $$$ to park!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

So we paid $22 to park the car for the day. Long story short, we only wanted to eat at Donair Kebab House, but the lot was $5/hour and $22 for the day....seeing some shopping spots we caved in and paid the $22. The area is near a hospital so since the hospital visit is free, the parking is a raping experience. We completely got turned around on Yonge St. and there are LOTS of good places to eat and visit there...matter of fact right next door...Big Slice or something like that. Like ALL Toronto experiences, this one was interesting...complete with a CRAZY 7' tall idiot screaming about death and toilets...I know right?!?!?

The food was great and the hot sauce is REALLY unique and a must if you like hot sauces...not OMG hot, but really tasty. CASH ONLY is a REALLLLY lame cop-out complete with an ABM (ATM for non-Canadians) ready to dispense funds at a fee. Limited seating, but go outside...Toronto is ALWAYS interesting.

“Great food/value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Stopped here late one night while in the city. The staff (I'm assuming also were the owners) were so nice to us, explaining all the ingredients and different preparations while we looked over the menu.
The food was awesome, after spending some in Greece, I got pretty accustomed to "street meat" and this didn't disappoint. They even have a secret sauce, which they will only sell with food, never separately.

Looking for inexpensive, filling, late night Turkish food? Look no further.

“Great for late night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Grabbed a delicious doner here at about midnight this weekend. The man and woman were absolutely wonderful, and so confident we would "love everything 100%!" And we did. Delicious food and a special sauce that makes it! Great that they are open so late, too!

“Delicious and cheap.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Eat on the go, delicious, fresh, around $20 for two people. Seats about 12 inside but most people will do take-out. Will stay on my Toronto list for a quick lunch bite. Mom and pop joint, friendly service. The hot sauce is something to experience...

“I love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

Being honest, from the outside the place doesn't look like much. Everyone I've taken there has thought the same but once they try the food their opinion changes. The food it self is pretty good, there is something about the hot sauce that keeps us coming back for more. Only downside for me is I don't live in Toronto and as it's a family business there is no chance of them adding another location.
