This is my first time having a Shawarma. We checked in here late at night (they are open until 4am!). A Shawarma is similar to a donair. It's meat and vegetables wrapped in a tortilla/pita type bread, then grilled in a panini press. They are so flavourful. You can choose which toppings and sauces you like, but I decided to... More

We heard this place was the best so we decided to check it out. It was really good but I think there are better. The prices are good though and it's definitely tasty. I think my large beef donair was $9. Great spot for the late night snack.

Have been visiting this place lately, was very surprised how good the food is, the beef shawarma was amazing, very friendly and fast service, good size portions of food at very reasonable price, offers different shawarma and donair combinations as well

Ate here on Saturday and its just not as good as it was, bread was wholemeal and hard, lamb was over spiced and overcooked and fries were greasy, need to find a new schwarma standard :-( Rob

This is the kind of place who saves you everyday. Quick, good quality and excellent prices. For take out or for eating there, this restaurant just excel. The best shawarmas that we tried in this city. The staff is so nice and gentle. Good portions, with a medium size shawarma you're ready (and less you're very very hungry). Also, you... More

This place and Jimmy's are the only names you need to know for Lebanese food in Calgary. Different from Jimmys in they grill their sandwiches after making them, these are flavour bombs not to be missed! Great service always, and a consistent product. Highly recommend!

I read about this on facebook and was having some people over for a book club type event. We had plates including the lamb, chicken, beef and falafel. Everyone said they were outstanding and asked where I got it from. I personally had the chicken and the lamb on different days and both were great. The hummus and taziki were... More

It's right on busy 14th Street near 17th Avenue; the decor is not hugely welcoming outside or in, but the staff is incredibly friendly and the food is fantastic. I always have the lamb shawarma and my husband has had both the chicken and the beef. We've both returned here many times and I've brought friends here too. What I... More

I can't speak for the meats or sauces but this is my list of why this place is awesome: 1) They make the falafel balls fresh to order! (No microwaved falafel that has been sitting around for who knows how long) 2) THAT CRISPY SHELL!!! Are you sick of getting an overstuffed dry pita bread? Shawarma Knight uses the proper... More
