Restaurant details
Reviewed March 21, 2014

I stop at this place every time we drive through Campbell River. I like their Oriental Shawerma plate (Donair and Fattoush salad) and each of my family members usually order a Donair Shawerma chicken. Prices are reasonable with an average of $10 per person. It is a really small restaurant, but they do have some tables to sit at. Take out or delivery is an option. Usually served with the food under 10 minutes. They are situated in a strip mall off Dogwood street, in front of a Tim Horton.

This little hole in the wall is Campbell Rivers finest restaurant. I would recommend it to anyone. There is no need to be hesitant about the Syrian Lebanese menu, the food is excellent. Call two hours ahead to order the barbecued chicken, it is well worth it.

I felt like I was stepping back into a middle eastern eatery. Their food is home made and adapted to suit your palate.Definitely a place to go to if you want to taste the real deal. The family who run it are friendly and make you feel welcome.

Where else can you get a falafel wrap that is tasty, fresh, and costs less than $6 whether you eat in or take out? When I'm in need of a quick lunch or dinner, Baba Ganouj is where I go. The service is friendly and cheerful and they even recognize what you typically order and ask if you want that. That's what marks excellent customer service for a restaurant. The staff make you feel like a valued customer, no matter how small your order is.
Also excellent, the fatoush salad (I may have spelled that wrong) and homemade pita and hummus.
The small seating area has been upgraded with more comfortable tables and chairs. They provide a water cooler where you can help yourself to water for free or pay for a drink from the beverage fridge (soda, juice, etc.)
Check it out. Let's keep small, family run businesses like this one alive in Campbell River!
