We use Chef Abod for our office and meeting catering. His chicken with rice and hummus lunch is a favourite and now used by many other partners. Food is fresh and portions a huge. Order with confidence.

We had cheese sambusas for appetizers. The appetizer was four triangles of fried pastry filled sambusas with a delicious slightly salty cheese. We really enjoyed them. For mains, I had the chicken shish tawouq and my husband had the mixed kebabs - chicken, beef and lamb. We both had the rice and paid only an extra dollar because we wanted... More

If you are looking for quility food with good prices. This place is a must try. The place doesn't look so fancy, but the service and food are the best in Halifax. Try different plates. You will not be disappointed. We order food from there Fort different occasions.

Chef Abod's Cafe is nestled away in the North end of Halifax on Kempt Rd., which is mainly made up of car dealerships and fast food restaurants, but that shouldn't stop you from going. Ordered the mixed kebab combo (lamb, chicken and beef) and Syrian ravioli and both dishes were very tasty, and I would recommend sharing them both as... More

We were at Chef Abod for the third time and once again a perfectly magnificent meal. This has become the place we bring friends when they are visiting Halifax.

We have been to many middle eastern restaurants in Atlantic Canada and we can say Chef Abod is the best. We don't even go anywhere else since enjoyed our first meal here years ago. The menu is rich. The food is so good. The atmosphere is lovely. You feel very welcomed. Prices are reasonable comparing with other places in the... More

I just had lunch here today and enjoyed a lamb burger with feta. I had a salad with it and found everything to be delicious. There is an assortment of desserts too. I had a piece of basbousa and quite enjoyed it. With such a variety of food I'll definitely be back to try other things. The dinner menu looks... More

It was perfect for what we wanted: a nice late lunch to meet up with a niece who was briefly in town. Might not be my choice for a romantic dinner - it's a diner in car lot territory - but if we lived near by, we'd probably go often. The food was very good, the service fast and friendly,... More
