Absolutely perfect! It's well organized and very clean and the service is very warm and welcoming. The food is perfect in taste and is perfect in appearance. It's absolutely fresher than fresh!

A small place you wouldn't think to stop in, but you'll be so glad you did. A very family atmosphere, where they cook the food basically in front of you. Excellent (!) food at very reasonable prices. Busy! I don't think they take credit cards,...though I may be wrong (I was told they didn't, so I brought cash). It gets quite busy during the lunch hours.More

I had a great experience at this restaurant. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They have many vegetarian/vegan options that are really good. I got the grape leaf meal which came with many different dishes, all which were amazing. We even got complementary soup...as well! The prices were also very reasonable. I would definitely go here again.More

We visited Tarek's for the first time on August 29th to pick up supper to go. Best choice ever...the service was fast and friendly plus we were offered a free sample of their lentil soup while our order was prepared. What a nice treat the...soup was. Our food was generous in portion and super yummy. We had a falafel sandwich, the falafel platter and the Mahal (note spelling may be wrong) special. We would order each again. A small seating area on site this is definitely a great find. Give it a try!More

Visiting from Kingston, ON and after a hot, long day of sightseeing on the waterfront, we were looking for something tasty, quick and informal. Tarek’s filled those requirements very nicely. The presence of lots of locals in this small, unpretentious establishment is testament to how...good the food is! A real treat to discover at a modest price!More

Was our first time at Tareks. We got the chicken shawarma platter with all the fixings. Very pleased with the quality of the ingredients and their portions are huge. They offered me complimentary lentil soup while I was looking over the menu. The soup was...ok, but definitely appreciated the service. Only complaint is the take cash only. It’s 2019.... ain’t nobody have time for cash! But they do have a ATM on site. Save yourself the surcharge and get cash prior to your visit!More

We have been going to Tarek’s for years. Staff are friendly, The food is plentiful, delicious, and great value. You will always be welcomed with a ‘free ‘taster’ bowl of soup. We always have one skewer dinner, the half and half (half skewer chicken and...half shaved beef) or the falafel plate. Loads of vegetarian options. It’s a little hard to find but well worth the search.More

Wraps, falafel, lentils and beans, soups - Tarek's always has great options at a great price and not a fryer in sight. The staff are great and you can't beat the value.

It does have about 10-15 small tables where you can sit and dine. Think what you envision when you see an outdoor café, except it's inside. If you arrive late during the lunch hour, they might all be taken. We've always... More
