Delicious, flavourful food. Sauce in chicken pitas is so tasty. Taboule tastes homemade. Wonderful! Quick service. Have been to two other locations on the west island as well, and I have to say this one is the best!

I came here hungry, and after my vegetarian platter, I was stuffed! The quantity of food they give you could easily be split into two smaller meals. Considering how much you get, the price is reasonable. Service was efficient, and the food was tasty!

I have been told about this place from many of my Montreal friends, and it really did live up to the hype. The workers there are really friendly and not pushy and impatient like other shawarma places. We went here for lunch both days we...More

Took TA review advice and had the chicken shawarma.....tasty as, but the pickled turnips and the smokey eggplant were the favourites. The lady on the counter taking payment was lovely but the man serving the food was to say the least a "grumblebum"....maybe he'd had...More

The shawama plate was great with tasty meat and rice and plenty of sauce. Noticed a lot of people getting pitas to go, which looked like a fantastic value for the cost.

Fantastic food! Great flavors! Very discreet place but is a must! We believe my husband left his sunglasses when he paid for our bill and we never got to see them again. I’d hope the staff would save them for us but we were told...More

Unpretentious and can be easy to miss, tucked away in a small, downstairs location. There is a small outside eating area for those nice days, if you can find a spot. The service is friendly and quick. The food is fresh, the chicken shawarma excellent,...More

This was the best shawarma I have had in a very long time. The place itself is modest but the food is amazing and the service is good. If you like shawarma and know what an authentic shawarma tastes like, a visit to this place...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
