Shelby's Food Express


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

Our story originated in our home kitchen where my mom used to cook. Over the years, she perfected the art of cooking Mediterranean food to such a level that we decided to open Shelby's. Consequently, what started off as a food trailer in 2014 has now become a well-known restaurant in the city. With our signature homemade Saj bread, style of cooking, and fusion menu items such as Shawarma Fries (Arabian Poutine) we offer you a dining experience like never before.

I went here with a friend, and ordered a mixed meat shawarma with rice and a salad. The real disappointment came when I asked for just tap water rather than bottled water. I am very Eco-conscious and so try to never buy the plastic water...More

The best tasting shawarma place in town. The bread is baked daily. The men who work there will serve you something so delicious you will swear your sitting in palestine, itself. Great food!

We were visiting London and were recommended to go to Shelby's. Best decision ever. So impressed with their ordering system - all online through a computer as you enter. Kind of fun. We ordered 3 different shawarma plates. So much good food. Possibly the best...More

Can’t even begin with how much I love this place. It’s so good that even my mom asks me to bring it back for her when I visit her in the GTA. The Chicken and Rice plate for 9.99 is easily the best value you...More

We had a very bad experience with Shelby's. It was especially disappointing, as it was a recommendation and our first time trying. We ordered the falafel wrap, beef shawarma wrap combo, fattoush and "jarred" garlic sauce for delivery. The food arrived after 1 1/2 hours...More

We came here on a weekend for lunch. The restaurant wasn't very busy but we had to wait 20+ minutes for our food. Ordering was a bit confusing because there were random people standing around and we didn't know where the line started or ended....More
