A good place to grab a fully loaded shawarma, you won't be left hungry. A range of food available for either eat in or take out. Close to Sunridge Mall and the cinema. Friendly staff and good service.

Perhaps I should have clued in when everyone in front of me ordered donairs and nothing else. I had the vegetarian platter (2 varieties of rice, potatoes, a mix of tabouleh and greek salad, eggplant, and falafel with hummus and garlic sauce) and an order of dolmades. The eggplant and falafel tasted like over-seasoned bread crumbs and old frier oil;... More

The tabbouleh was exactly the way I love it, very lemony and with far more parsley than grain. The large donair was not overfilled by any means but it was delicious with very fresh tasty veggies and great tzatziki. Unfortunately the place is a near total writeoff. The entire restaurant desperately needs a makeover, the chairs are '70s specials, and... More

Slow, lazy, grumpy with a bad attitude guy serving customers. The wrap I ordered fell apart in his hands so I asked for him to use another wrap. He just laughed at me and thanks to that it was extremely difficult to eat. The taste was below average. The Greek salad was lacking feta cheese and tasted just horrible. This... More

This place makes a great shwarma or donair. They have a $8.95 lunch special for a shwarma or donair and a can of pop. The food is good and the service is usually quick.

We were looking for a quick bite one day after shopping in the area and a co-worker had told me about this place. It fit the bill as is located in a strip mall near the movie theatre (easy parking) and included foods that appealed to the meat eater (him) and the veggie eater (me). We have been back many...

I don't know if it was because I just came out of the gym or what but there was a very pleasant smell in the mall. After looking for the source, I find this place and I asked what was he cooking. He said the chicken and I immediately replied that I have to have it. It was very, very... More

The first impression on arriving at Babylon Qithara in the NE was very disappointing. I almost turned and left. The décor is poor and unwelcoming and looked very 'grubby'. Despite this, I sat and mistakenly tried to move my seat which was sticky with something unpleasant that necessitated me washing my hands immediately. We were promptly given sticky menus and...

We had a wonderful family supper at Babylon. We all ordered the kebabs platters and my husband, who is a vegetarian, had falaffel. It was all excellent! The service was great and the food was plentiful and fresh. I would definitely go back to Babylon!
