If you goto Iqaluit you have to goto Yummy Shwarma for lunch. Reasonably priced because everything is flown in. Lots of room to sit. Suggest you go before the lunch rush.

I wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised by how good the falafel was. It's a bit out of the way but worth the extra walk

Yummy shawarma is a great choice if you’re hungry and just don’t know what to eat. A wide selection of foods, and of course, Shawarma!

We had a simple meal: shawarma for the meat-eaters and falafel for the vegetarians. Would return again if we were staying longer.

This restaurant is within walking distance from the Discovery hotel. Upon arrival, I found they had very great priced food (anything in the arctic is more expensive) with good lunch specials. I would definitely go back!

What a surprise to find a shawarma restaurant in Iqaluit. I was there for business, but taken there for lunch by a friend following a week of meals in the hotel. What a refreshing experience. Lots of flavour, fresh veggies and friendly service. Thanks Yummy...More

No I don't think so, that combination makes dining out pretty difficult in Iqaluit.
