My work friends and I have been going here for years. The food has always been delicious and Cyrus makes the best shawarma I've tasted. Family owned and run, so help support them! Best homemade hot sauce!

A friend introduced me to Cyrus a few years ago. I go every chance I get. the food is amazing, and the portions for the price are excellent. This is a great place for a quick lunch, or a sit down dinner.

Have enjoyed the food from this little local restaurant for more than six years and thought that they deserved a shout out. The owner is always there and one of the staff from six years ago is still there too -- and they remember my name even though they probably see me once every couple of months. We do a... More

A fast and friendly place to have lunch. Either eat in or take out. I have done both. Great tasting food.

Warm atmosphere and family run. Food is good and you always feel welcome. Go early as they run out of shawarma usually before they close. Cute decor and friendly staff. Can be very warm inside for dining in the summer. Delish! Affordable.

It was another hectic day which called for take out dinner. I had some business to attend to in south Oshawa and remembered some friends recommending Cyrus. After spending some time looking over their extensive menu, I settled on 3 chicken shawarma wraps and the small appetizer plate. My shawarma was excellent. The pita was stuffed with freshly shaved tasty... More

Great Persian food. Don't expect any frills. You order your food at the back from the cashier. If you're eating in or taking out it comes in take out containers. If you're eating in you take a seat and they will bring it to you. I get the shawarma plate comes with Basmati rice and a salad. It's delicious but... More

Enjoyed the food, but they force you to eat as take out (with all the styrofoam and plastic that encompasses) even when you sit down to eat inside. Apparently this is recent, which seems odd given most places are trying to be less wasteful with composting or at the very least reusable plates these days. So bring your own plate??

We've been going to Cyrus for a couple of years now. It's out of our way but when we get that craving, it's worth the drive. Everything is delicious. The Chicken Shawarma and the dinner plate is a popular choice but everything is excellent. The portions are in line with the price and it's good value. I'd have to say... More

Best Shwarma in town. We enjoy it frequently. This is a family business. The owners are very friendly. Highly recommended
