We had a Groupon so walked here from the Museum of Natural History. Ordered a Chicken Shawarma with tabouli and baklava, Beef Shawarma with potatoes and baklava, and a Chicken Platter.

Ordered to go. Small chicken and Largae chicken Shawarmas. Great value and halal. The hot sauce is little bit spicy. Try little bit first or ask to give you in a separate small box. Plus point for me is found another halal place to eat in Ottawa

I used to live in Ottawa and when I returned, had to get it for dinner. Ordered on Just-Eat. Was fairly quick and had large portions. If you want the best shawarma in Ottawa, give them a call or stop by!

If you love garlic, you can't go wrong at Shawarma's King. Try the potatoes and awaken your tastebuds. No kisses later
