I visited this place because of its good reviews, and my pleasant experience with the Shawarma Palace on Bank and Hunt Club. I was so disappointed. The chicken sandwich was cold and tasted awful. In the process of preparing it, the man wore hand glove...in his left hand, used the same hand to adjust the mask over his nose. Never going back to this place again!More

We ordered the mixed chicken and beef plate, the chicken and beef kebab plate, a tabouli and a Greek salad. The food and service were both good and the servings were large.

I always order the chicken plate or the Mixed chicken/beef plate. Portions when you eat in are huge. When you order out its as much as fits in the box. always fresh .

Their sandwiches are small for the price. You have to pay extra for the garlic sauce on potatoes? Soft drinks too expensive.

My husband and I ordered the chicken platter and mix platter with a skewer of filet minion , extra veggies for delivery to our home. When we received our order the food was ice cold, the filet minion was missing and the chicken and potatoes...were dry, the garlic sauce was too strong to use but difficult to remove from the food. I tried contacting them by phone several times but no one picks up the phone at the other end, only received an answering machine. This was a horrible experience, the food wasn't worth the money and the fact that part of our order was missing was hugely disappointing. If they had at least answered the phone so we could have sorted this out. They just lost 2 customers.More

A couple of months ago, our daughter and her partner who live in Victoria, B.C. gifted us a surprise dinner of chicken shawarma, hummus, tuboulie, pita bread, garlic sauce, etc. - all very fresh & delicious with large portion size. It was hands down the...best we've ever tasted here in Ottawa or anywhere else for that matter. Today we visited the restaurant to purchase some hummus, tuboulie and garllc sauce for a family meal of leftover chicken and lamb tonight. It was a pleasure to speak with a staff member who appeared to be in charge. Service was friendly and efficient!More

Easily one of the best shawarmas we’ve ever had. Great size, easily packed, good service, etc. Several locations around Ottawa, not hard to find. Highly recommended.
