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

Came in for the first time a little over a week ago and I was impressed by everything. From the people who worked there to the the final product. I personally had the chicken shawarma and I am definitely going to be back for more soon.

This place is a order pickup and seat yourself kind of place. situate in a small house, seating is limited. Because it was a nice day we chose to sit outside but it is a busy street so would probably not do that again. I had a very reasonably priced falafel wrap. My husband had chicken swharma with rice and... More

Cyrus was one of my faves when I lived in Oshawa. We moved west last year but I was in town for a few days so I dropped in. No more sit down service - there's a note that everything is now served in styrofoam containers so you can still dine in but eat out of styrofoam with plastic knives... More

Cyrus is my unicorn! I know it's a small family run place, but I've attempted to visit over four times within their operating hours only to find them closed with a note on the door. I'll go elsewhere for Persian food. It's a shame, because I've heard such great things!

Thank you for your review. Sorry we have been closed. Unfortunately Cyrus' brother has suddenly passed away and he has taken time to grieve with the family. We will be reopened on May 10th, 2016. More

Wonderful, affordable Persian food - especially their kebabs! I have eaten kebab in popular restaurants in Tehran and this is every bit as good. We were a little disappointed in their decision to switch to take-out containers only but if it allows them to maintain their wildly low prices, then so be it!

This place is great. We usually have to go west to get a good place for shawarma until we found Cyrus. Nice couple owned business, awesome food. Yum. Love the chicken and falafel wraps. Can't go wrong here.

I had noticed this place on Trip Advisor for a while. Decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed. Staff is friendly and helpful. The place is clean, service was prompt and the food was hot. Portions are a good size and price is just about right. The place is small and when the front door is... More
