I had a simple but delicious lunch here recently and I recommend visitors to Iqaluit give it a try if you're in the mood for some Mediterranean cuisine.

I've only eaten their pizza, but it's the best in Iqaluit! Reasonably priced for Iqaluit Cheesy but not soggy! We order it a couple of times a week and the quality is consistent.

I cold not believe my eyes when I saw this place. I was skeptical at first but their food would rank as some of the best I have ever had. A four hour flight north of Ottawa....just might be worth it.

nice to have the shawarma option and the pizza is great. the delivery is fast and the eat-in option is nice when you want to sit for a bit. The sitting area is a bit tired looking.

I have eaten here several time and can't complain. The pizza is good but a bit expensive for the size. Donairs are average tasting. It's good if you want a quick bite.
