I come here on a regular, the portions are great and the taste is amazing. The place itself is not the nicest looking inside, but still has enough seating during lunch time. Best shawarma in the area for sure.

I really enjoyed the food here. It was cheap and I got full with what I ordered. I must have been when it was not too busy. They even hand out some samples for some potatoes.

Fresh ingredients. Friendly staff. Had the swarma and tabouli. Prices were very reasonable. Swarma had plenty of spicy chicken. Loved it. Will be sure to return when we go back to Ottawa.
