“Best shawarma in town”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Their garlic sauce is to die for. The serving is waaay too big for 1 person. I comfortably split it into 2 meals. There's usually at least 1/2 lb of cooked chicken, and up to a pound of salad!

“Must try!”

This is one of my two favourite shawarma houses in ottawa. It's fresh and huge portions. I recommend this place for sure.

“The best Lebanese/ Middle Eastern fare without a doubt...!!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

This is not just a restaurant, it appears more like an institution. From the long queues of salivating and repeat customers, you can pretty well read the anticipation...

A massively piled plate of beef or chicken or a combination...slopped with Hummus and olive oil, drenched with sesame sauce over garlic potatoes and saffron rice.....couldn't be more fresher..

Grant you, the lady at the counter is only interested payment...do not expect a smile. However, the servers, once you know them, are the most jovial bunch.

Garlic sauce on the side is to die for...other items that are absolutely fantastic...Kabab, kofta, vegetarian items such as eggplant...and of, course the superb fallafel...
Prices have been creeping up lately but it will beat McDonald's any day of the week...for nutrition as well as value. So just go and enjoy.

“Shawarma!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

This is definitely our go-to restaurant on Fridays for lunch! We ensure we do not have meetings in the afternoon and go for the garlic potatoes as a side-dish to our shawarma! This is one of the only places in town that uses great garlic sauce, and DOES NOT microwave your food! The have a grill and it makes it just that much better!

“Very tasty food”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Nice sized servings, plenty of food, and all was tasty. It was a good buy for what I got and I have been back for more - always the sign of success for me.
