I have tried lebanese cuisine across winnipeg, by far this has to be the better ones. They have all traditional dish which taste great. The sitting area is just average, nothing fancy so don't expect an ambiance here, but its decent. But if you want to pick up ot grab a bite, the food is recommended! The owners are a... More

Need something deliciously. Different? Can't deal with one more sandwich? Try this place in the Exchange. Real food with aromas and colours that awaken you sense of sight and smell. Going back soon

I love the way these folks run their business. The best shawarma hands down. I love garlic and this place makes their own garlic sauce for their dishes. My favourite is #30- a big plate of hummus and chicken with veggies and fresh pitas. No joke... Every bite makes me so happy!

I have driven by Shawarma time for years but never stop in. The place looked a little schetchy from the street. A good friend suggested I give it a try. Well I have wasted years of great eating. The food was absolutely delicious!!! Shawarma prepared right in front of you on homemade pita. Fabulous sauce and a very friendly owner.... More

Visited on a whim with family. A very basic decor but the food was delicious! I loved the tabouli, but all the flavours were great!

The bread may be made in traditional way and hummus is not bad but the toilet is filthy, it needs cleaning, there is dirt inside, and what is more the hygiene standards are lacking inside the food prep area, hair not covered, and come on putting French's American mustard in a kebab and calling it hot sauce I mean COME...

We all had different items and they managed to get the food out in great time, hot and loved the garlic sauce. The talboulah salad looked great and wish I had one of the combo items that incorporated that too. I have number 29 with medium spice and it wasn't particularly hot which was fine with me. I took home... More

I came today to their restaurant. Both the man and the lady are friendly. It was my first visit so the lady helped me with the menu. I told her as well that I'm preganant and what I wanted. She was very flexible with the menu and helped me to get what I want. Even the man gave me some... More

Good food, but expensive. Excellent samosas. A plate of rice and meat cost $14, plate and fork were plastic.
