The food is amazing and staff are amazing. Been coming to this place for years ever since I met my wife. You won’t be disappointed. Signed Edmonton boy. Pretty sure people move to Calgary for the food and most importantly Jimmy.

Needed a Mediterranean fix. Was in the area. Got a bit of everything. Wow do these folks know how to cook. They have been here 28 yrs. Loved the banter back and forth. Mmmmm the food samplers were over the top. Be back soon!!!

It's ok. Lots of toppings on the lamb schwarma. They are huge. It was very busy and we waited a good twenty five minutes for two schwarmas. The garlic sauce is strong. It seems like they know what they are doing. A well oiled assembly...More

amazing hummus, super spanikopita, best baklava, exceptional staff and fun owners. Sitting outside on their tables is always a treat. The Small Donair was plenty filling and always top it off with a baklava - best way to end the meal :)
