We are dedicated to using only ingredients of the highest quality and tasteful variety so that you can enjoy the different flavours of our exquisite recipes.

Our Customer Stories
Better Service Starts Here
“For starters the people behind the counter were very welcoming & friendly, and the restaurant was clean and organized. They worked quickly to make our food and seemed to genuinely care about our enjoyment of their products. Their chicken shawarma wrap is amazing 🤤! The chicken is perfectly cooked and I loved the garlic sauce and tahini (my dad came with me and his first words after taking a bite were “mmm this is good!!”). I’m sitting here feeling happy and full and the only thing on my mind now is when I should go back next 🤗. Thanks for the great meal🎉!”Joel Scott
“They do great catering platters! Beautifully done, very generous portions, and very delicious! I ordered a 10 person menu and I’d say there l was enough food for more than 16 people. They added on complementary items and baklava as well. The staff is super friendly, and accommodating. Customer service went above and beyond our expectations. I will definitely be recommending this place and using them for my future functions!”Liana L
“I've been here a few times now and it has been an amazing experience every time. The staff are super friendly and helpful if it's your first time with the cuisine. Highly recommend the butter chicken donair. The gentleman that helped me (not sure if it's the owner, but they sure know how to treat their guests well) was awesome and gave me great suggestions.”Danny Danny

“The servings here are generous, staff is friendly and the food is delicious. I’m obsessed with the shawarma salad and the mixed salad. So much meat you can not tell there is actually lettuce under there.”Erin Siegers
