Good place for shawarma, delicious, ample quantity to fill you up to the ears, reasonable price. Better to take out. Inside seating is just ordinary. We visited this place many times. If we are in the area, we will go there again. Location is good,...at Jean Talon and Decarie. The restaurant has it own parking space.More

Chicken shawarma is very good, tasty, and in sufficient quantity, more than what we could eat. You can sit in or take out. Parking is sufficient, we never had any problem. We visited the restaurant 15-20 times over a period of about 18 months.

Last time I found them average. I found the garlic sauce to be more oily than garlicky. They fixed this problem and the food is actually better than any other Lebanese restaurant I've had. The chicken is really well seasoned and the potatoes are great....The plate comes in a huge portion that usually ends up becoming a second meal later on.More

We ordered take out this past Saturday. We called at 6 pm and the dinner was ready for pick up after 15 minutes. I asked to have the plastic cutlery removed as i was taking the food home and she obliged which does not always...happen at restaurant take out. Good luck not getting plastic with any order from McDonald's !! The food from Boustans was great, perhaps the best garlic sauce I've ever eaten.More

Pros: Clean dining area & Good Service Very tasty eggplant appetizer; do try! Another recommendation is the Saj bread; nice a crispy Not too far from Decarie service road (easy to stop in for a bite) Cons: The chicken meat in my sandwich was too...mushy for my liking Garlic sauce is so-so; you can get better at other Lebanese food area There's an Amir right next door that serves up similar (and arguably better value) platesMore

Ate at this location a couple of times. The food is just okay for me. I find their garlic sauce to be not very garlicky but very oily. Amir's sauce is much tastier. It is the only Boustan I tried so I am not sure...if all locations are like this.More

Ordered a Vegetarian plate and I got a plate of grease and disgusting tasting food. With an uninspiring staff. They made my plate partially and stuck it in the microwave I noticed it when they were taking it out and of course after paying. Was...there at lunchtime and the place had about 6 people.More
