This establishment has recently changed ownership unbeknownst to me . A friend and I went there for lunch today. She had the chicken shawarma wrap and I had the koobideh wrap. Both of us were disappointed. Tbh it isn’t as good as it was before....Maybe it was just a bad day so I’ll give it another try someday but if it isn’t comparable to the original owners next time, I won’t be back after that.More

Went to Cyrus again recently... not good. Very tasteless food and low quality, when it always used to be so good. There is a new owner. Cyrus is not there anymore (new owner will not tell you that and says he is coming back). Thankfully...Cyrus is opening a food truck up on Winchester Road with the other food trucks where we will be able to get all the delicious food we are used to getting from him. The new food truck is called Shah's of Shawarma. I'm sure the line-ups will be long!More

This is literally the best shawarma I have ever eaten in my life. I live about 1h15mins away and I will make the drive JUST for the food and the warm welcome I get each time. The food is always just so delicious and tasty,...full of flavour. The owner (I have horrible memory when it comes to names 😩) is such a sweetheart. He always has such a big smile whenever I walk in and greets me with so much love. You can tell he appreciates my business. I know not everyone will share my same opinion, but do yourself a favour and go in with an open heart and open mind and let alll that love come flowing in thru every bite.More

Great little restaurant for Eastern food! This place is close to the 401 and would be a great lunch spot if you’re travelling through the area. Parking is a tad tight but once you are inside the folks are very friendly and the food is...amazing. The falafel is delicious as are the shawarmas, served fresh to your table in take out containers which is convenient. The salad is fresh and delicious, I really enjoyed their olive oil/lemon dressing. Not a lot of seating but a place worth visiting. Good value, fresh food and generous portions.More

Food very fresh and tasty. The chicken shwarma is my favourite. The garlic sauce is addictive. The owners very accommodating. The only negative is the parking. I eat here at least twice a month. I don't think you would be disappointed . Call ahead for...takeout.More

Ordered a chicken shawarma. Saw the meat cooking on the spit. Chicken was being cut on a deli slicer and probably from the day before as they had just opened. Any other time they shave it off the spit in front of you at other...restaurants. Cheap on the tomatoes. Ate a 1/4 and tossed the rest. Staff at the cash was very pleasant. Won't return.More

I've been here thrice. I've discovered this little gem through work, I've delivered to this business and was curious to try the food. Visiting here around 12:00 - 15:00, basically around lunch time. As stated the title above, those are the only items I've ordered...so far. I've gotten the Falafel wrap twice with "everything" on it and "spicy". Food is good. Just trust. Other coworkers really rave about how good this place is. Just go.More

After reading the raving reviews, I was so looking forward to the chicken shawarma wrap or plate for dinner after work on Friday. We arrived at 6:00 pm and most menu items were sold out (I'd say 75%). I was so disappointed (talk about lunch...bag letdown). They do not cater to 9-5'ers so if you can't get there early, don't bother. And they're not open Saturday or Sunday. I regret that I will never experience their food.More

I am a reviewer of Cyrus not anything to do with them. You might try calling them to get your question answered but I don't think they do. Happy new year!
