Excellent place to grab a bite to eat, Located not far from the airport. Eat in or take out. The staff are very friendly and helpful, food is wonderful.

Didn't expect to have shawarma in Iqaluit....but I had it and it was awesome. I was here with coworkers and they loved it as well.

What a surprise to find a shawarma restaurant in Iqaluit. I was there for business, but taken there for lunch by a friend following a week of meals in the hotel. What a refreshing experience. Lots of flavour, fresh veggies and friendly service. Thanks Yummy...More

Have had the pizza and salads from here for years. They do an amazing fatush salad with chicken, i suggest adding pickles, hot and garlic sauce, delicious and healthy!

More than a shawarma shop, this place does pizza, poutine, wraps, pasta and a few more things. I tried a small chicken shawarma and really enjoyed it. The portion of chicken was generous and came with the usual expected toppings of garlic sauce, lettuce, onions,...More

I've only eaten their pizza, but it's the best in Iqaluit! Reasonably priced for Iqaluit Cheesy but not soggy! We order it a couple of times a week and the quality is consistent.

I cold not believe my eyes when I saw this place. I was skeptical at first but their food would rank as some of the best I have ever had. A four hour flight north of Ottawa....just might be worth it.

No I don't think so, that combination makes dining out pretty difficult in Iqaluit.
