We've been here several times over the last few months and love the food. Service is quick, the prices are reasonable and the food has always been well done with a great flavour! Love the garlic paste! We'll be back many more times!

Went back today to get another medium donair. They took care of us last time, and they did it again. So tasty, right combo of ingredients, and the sweet sauce is delicious. Definitely filling even with only the medium. Will probably try the donair plate...More

Under new ownership. Tasty, fresh and well prepared. The new owner is a trained chef and really knows Lebanese food. Falafel made from scratch, chicken shwarma sandwiches are the best - South of Ottawa. Much improved. Very tasty.

I always get a medium donair and was never disappointed - most of the time the owner works behind the counter and we talk a little about the restaurant business. The sandwich is always full of meet and I love the sauces they offer.

Having lived in Ottawa years ago, I developed an appreciation for good Middle Eastern (Halal) food. Famous King is by far the best I've been able to find in Kingston. Portions are generous and prices are reasonable. The owner is very friendly and prepares your...More

Had the donair and it was phenomenal. Nice and messy and enough napkins to clean it up. Great sweet sauce and the meat was very tender. Ordered it on delivery.
