We ordered a falafel dinner, a falafel wrap, and an extra side of tabbouleh for takeout. We were told there would be a 15 minute wait, which was okay with us. It seemed like it took that long to heat up the oil in the...More

I've been coming to this place for years, but moved out of the area a few years ago and it hasn't convenient for me to come by here for 4-5 years. My wife and a friend of ours were hanging out in the area while...More

I love their Shawarma wrap using Halal meats. My favourite is the beef or lamb. Make sure you want it spicy, there's something about that spice.

the best shwarma in town. Abdul is very professional and the food is fresh and delicious. The place is in Crystal Mall but there is an entrance from Kingsway road. Note: Everything is cash.

I am a die hard fan of Mediterranean cuisine specially Shawarmas. But this place gave a shock not to have the Shawarmas again. The chicken and lamb meat were so overcooked that it was missing any kind of aroma(God knows if the cook has put...More

As the last reviewer mentioned, this restaurant needs a major cleaning and general sprucing up. However, contrary to their experience we found the food to be very flavourful and enjoyable. If you are sensitive to spicy food go for the mild (my girlfriend even found...More
