The food is excellent and the staff are friendly. Great Shawarma. The best deal is to order the 10 person platter. Call ahead - easily servers 10-15 people for about $150. The regular shawarma plate is plenty for 2-3 meals.

I love this place. Great food , big portions and good stuff to eat on a low budget. You can smell the garlic sauce right into Carling avenue. The staff is very nice and the restaurant is always clean and child friendly.

I've been coming this this Shawarma Palace for the past 6 years and I've noticed it's been gradually going downhill in terms of quality and quantity for your dollar. The price has also gone up a tremendous amount such that a shawarma combo costs as much as the platter back in the day ($10.99). The chicken lately has either been... More

Oh my gosh, where do I start? It is so fresh, authentic, and it's always the same employees working every time I go - customer service is great! My family and I love it and try and go every time we are visiting the city. Must try!

My husband and I visited Ottawa for 10 days in August 2016 with a plan to eat at different places for both lunch and dinner. We ended up going to Shawarma Palace for 4 lunches because it was so good! We tried chicken, mixed, falafel, and vegetarian wraps and they were all amazing. The meat, falafel, and vegetables were freshly... More

It's been a few years since I was last at Shawarma Palace and so today, with my girlfriend new to Ottawa, I decided to take her there for a quick dinner. When I first discovered Shawarma Palace years back, it was a quiet place with excellent food and a super attentive team of staff. The good and the team are... More

This place has really gone down the tubes. I used to frequent this place when I worked closer. I drove out today to get some and the ceiling had gross stuff hanging from it. The garnishes like lettuce was on the verge of going brown. The rice as a side was hard like it wasn't cooked properly. The shawarma was... More

With their smiles and cheerful greetings, the folks who run this Mid-East cuisine treasure in Ottawa's west-end, can guarantee you will walk out with much of your wallet intact, but with a full, contented belly. A couple can order up their large combo platter and have enough left over to take home for one more meal! Unbelievable in this day.... More
