We wanted to try it out lotsa hype about it. Place has a stage!??? Tried it out for lunch. Friendly service. But All the topping were dry looking (not freshly cut). Didnt fill up my shawarma with much chicken. A little on the skinny side. The styrofoam plates with seperation for sides were too small. There advertising and decorations and funny looking van are a little much. Its the food that brings the customers back.

When your in the mood for shwarma this is a great spot.

The shwarma plate was excellent and was huge.

The staff is very friendly as well.

I'll definitely be back.

We ate here last Saturday evening with our 3 young children and we ordered multiple platters for dinner. The curly fries were a hit with the kids. Lots of tables to sit down with highchairs. We even sat down long enough to enjoy the Sens game on one of the tv screens.

Me and a group of friends went over to this restaurant to check its appropriateness for a banquet next year, and to check the food items. Now, I had checked the restaurant's website beforehand, and it sounded over the top, in a good way.
So we go in and check the menu. The meal options are few, but with a huge variety of options, which somewhat confused me, and one of my friends had to help me with my order. (I don't blame the restaurant; I should have looked at the written menu pamphlet more carefully.)
How was my food? Fantastic! It really tasted like fresh ingredients. Now, they don't offer hot tea or coffee, but they do have ice tea.
When the meal was over, the owner came to discuss the options for our banquet. He listened to us, and then made his offer. So I think they'll be getting our business.

Insanely tacky decor and the atmosphere is weird The owner is very out there. I go with my dad to this place a few times a year and it's decent but I prefer other shawarma places in Ottawa
