By far, the most un-sanitized restaurant I have been to. The chicken so under-cooked you could see the raw layer. The Shawarma was priced for $9.45 but he decided to charge me $12. The gentleman cleaned his hand with a dirty cloth that was used...More

Need to get to this place at least a few times each year - and we come all the way in from Surrey. Their Shawarma is the absolute best!

Outstanding shawarma - very close to what I enjoy in Qatar. Very reasonably priced with all fresh ingredients. A downtown treasure.

Babylon Cafe is what a good neighborhood falafel stand would be if it were tucked in a storefront. Stripped down, but with great falafel, shawarmas and other Middle Eastern fare. What's special are the many accouterments they offer, including all sorts of what look like...More

First time ever writing a review but this place deliberately ripped me off and I was completely shocked as this has never happened to me in Vancouver before. I ordered a 7.50$ wrap and a drink, gave them a 20$ bill and they hand me...More

The Souvlaki was pretty tasty and the portion was enough for a starving person. The chicken was cooked enough; not under or over cooked. I liked the environment of the restaurant too. My wife's Felafel plate was also good and fresh. We will definitely go...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
