They simply make the best donairs in Sherwood Park. They come with very large portions of donair meat and a choice of sauces. A must visit for donair lovers.

Being a resident of Sherwood Park there is the plethora of donairs ranging from junk to mediocre. This one being the best and worth a review. Price is very reasonable also and I would recommend this place for lunch or dinner.

One of the best donairs I've found in the Edmonton area. Basha in Leduc is probably tops, but this is right up there. Meat is not too seasoned, and the sweet sauce is nearly the same as the amazing donairs up in Fort McMurray! Price was about average too. And the staff were SUPER friendly. A large majority of the...

I have to admit I was weary when the uncle past the torch down. But the service and the donairs are still excellent. Ive been to many different donair shops throughout BC & Alberta nothing compares :)

I must admit. I've been sceptical. If indeed they don't keep regular hours...phone ahead. Just induged in a Super Donair after reading all the positive reviews. I've eaten here a few times in the last few years. I think because on my first visit I watched the chef pull the meat from a tray...and not off the spigot...I was turned... More
