Wonderful place to pick up a quick, delicious and filling meal. The price is just right and the staff are always chatty and easy to talk to. They show a genuine interest in you and your satisfaction with their meals. Always willing to go back...More

This restaurant is in a little strip mall. Adequate parking. And it is handicapped accessible. The restaurant was fairly clean and was bright. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. You go up to the counter to order and when it is ready he calls...More

Awesome shawarma! You wouldn’t really think from the outside or even what the inside looks like but it really hit the spot. Good quantity and fair price. Not sure if they ever have gyro though as I only got chicken. Definitely check it out if...More

Love the flavours! The sultani kabob is great. Love the kofta. The only reason for the 4 stars is that sometimes the beef skewer is overcooked. Still by far the best kabob in the area

We love to get the Beef Kofta wraps! You can order on line or wait for it while salivating at the smells. The food is always good and we have been going for years.

First visit. Friendly staff. Ordered combo #8 (chicken and kofta Kabab with rice and salad). Very good flavour and fair prices. My only suggestion would be to offer a red spicy sauce. Will return next time I’m in Guelph.

We are convinced that this must be the best Afghani food in the entire Greater Toronto Area. We have been twice, and just regret that Guelph is so far from downtown Toronto, or else we would be back a lot more often. Their meals are...More

Omg...the chicken shawarma plate is so delicious. Everything is cooked fresh to order. The shawarma poutine is awesome too. It's not on the menu, but just ask for it and they have it.

Hi, When we were at Helmond Kabab, we had a lovely talk with the owner. He emphasized that the food had an Afghan origin or flair. My husband had the dish and really enjoyed it. He liked that he was in control of the... More
