There is simply not enough consistency now that it has been taken over by Mezza. Especially the Venus at Halifax Shopping centre. You can have a chicken Shawarma there and the garlic sauce does not taste the same as at the other locations. And let's face it if it wasn't for their garlic sauce then any old shawarma will do.

on work break saw this place. Nice variety on the menu but the pizza tasted like it had been sitting for a while. The crust was dry and it was hard to bite into. I've had better at other places

I ordered delivery from here tonight. First off I will admit my mistake, I accidentally checked Take Out instead of Delivery so about 10 minutes after the order was supposed to arrive the restaurant called telling me that the pizza was ready and getting cold. I told them it was supposed to be for delivery and they said I had... More

And it's delicious! The shawarma plate is something I have been craving since I finished my last bite. Can't wait for more!

Located in Downtown Halifax. The food is quite good. The prices are okay. The service was average. The building needs a facelift. We picked up our food and ate elsewhere.

I always stop here every time I visit Halifax. I love Lebanese food, and this is some of the tastiest I've ever had. My favorite is the veggie plate. I'm not even a vegetarian and I love it! So, so good. The falafels and the tabouli are incredibly delicious. Give this place a try!

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant for over 10 years. We have always enjoyed the food very much. My husband always has the Donair wrap and I have a variety of things. Falafel wrap, Chicken Schwarma, Chicken Souvlaki and more. Never, ever disappointed with the food. or service. Always excellent until it changed hands. However, since... More

Dropped in for a quick lunch. Ordered the small donair and the small chicken shawarma. Both were very tasty. Restaurant is now "Mezza".

As mentioned in the previous review, this restaurant recently had undergone a large-scale renovation and is hardly recognizable from its former state. It is quite clean and well-maintained now. Moreover, their tradition of tasty pizza is still going strong. The donairs are some of the best in the city: not too much or too little sauce, and donair meat is... More

Major reno has been completed, and Venus, is now "Mezza," like the rest of the family owned group of outlets. Prior comments about the state of cleanliness were justifiable, but everything is now spotless. Late night mayhem was always a good time, despite the Bowery state of affairs. Arguably the best chicken shwarma in Halifax, it's layered and properly charred... More
