Their Halifax Donairs are delicious as usual. Lots of meat and sauce although I recommend getting and extra sauce. Their garlic fingers are also very tasty!

You won't be disappointed! Authentic Nova Scotia donair... meat well seasoned, sauce perfectly sweet. Only thing missing is the smell of the ocean in the air....

I just moved from New-Brunswick to Ottawa, and I was really craving garlic finger, so I ordered some because there were great reviews. But it was the worst 20$ I have ever spent. The dough was dry, the donair sauce was so liquid it almost looked like water. If you're used to the great garlics of the maritimes, you will... More

Don't be intimidated by its look, this restaurant boasts the best donair in town. It's so good it makes you want to forget about dirty stinky shawarma forever! Gus is a great cook and he knows how to prepare an awesome donair!

Decent donair in Ottawa. Almost just as good as on the East Coast. The meat is a little dry and the sauce seems a little watery. But the taste is right on. Can't go wrong. The small is a bit small, but with a side of garlic fingers, it is the perfect size for lunch.

I've tried donair at a number places in Ottawa, and they never lived up to the ones I've had in Nova Scotia. Finally visited this place on a random whim and I have to say it's the best I've had in Ottawa yet! I will go out of my way to get donair here, that's for sure. Plus the owner... More

The only place in town where you can get real Halifax donair. The outside of the building is kind of worn, and the inside isn't anything to write home about, but sometimes those are the best!

As a displaced Newfoundlander in Ottawa, finding garlic fingers warmed our hearts: just like home. Halifax style donairs were good, almost the real thing! Will be back to keep the craving from home away.

I went here because I wanted shwarma but my go-to shop was closed. This was fairly nearby, and I figured I'd give it a shot. I think this is now my go-to shop! The donair was delicious, the price was more than reasonable, and the man behind the counter was incredibly kind and friendly.
