A quick and tasty Shawarma or Gyro will make your tummy happy. Comes with fries and a pop which is great. Recommend this place, especially before a zoo trip or if you are taking a break from the red line to get some eats.

I had the falafel wrap. Lettuce, tomato, cucumber added crunch. Humus gave it a creaminess, and the tsadiki sauce provided snap. An inexpensive, nutritional, tasty lunch. It pairs well with a visit to the zoo-just up the street.

Had a delicious chicken shawarma. Would recommend. Fast service. This may be subjective but I feel better after eating here.

Meet the Chef

Marc El-Adas

Marc, a talented chef with a rich cultural heritage, was born into a Christian family in Lebanon. Due to the complexities of life in Lebanon, his family made the difficult decision to emigrate to Canada, seeking a new beginning. In Canada, Marc's culinary journey took a significant turn when he started working at his cousin's restaurant. His dedication and passion for cooking shone through, leading him to eventually buy the restaurant from his cousin and take over as the head chef.

Over the past 20 years, Marc has not only owned the restaurant outright but also transformed it into a cherished local gem. His connection with the community is evident through his loyal local following, who appreciate not only the exceptional food but also the intimate and welcoming atmosphere of his small restaurant.

Marc's culinary prowess is on full display through the restaurant's diverse and high-quality menu. He is known for his weekday lunch specials, which reflect his personal preferences and culinary creativity, ranging from pasta dishes to succulent ribs. This unique approach keeps his menu exciting and unpredictable, much to the delight of his regulars.

Outside the kitchen, Marc's life is enriched by the companionship of Asha, his beloved Bernese Mountain Dog. Asha is not just a pet but a part of Marc's life, symbolizing the warmth and comfort that Marc extends to his restaurant and its patrons.

In essence, Marc's story is one of resilience, passion, and community, woven together through his love for cooking and his ability to create a sense of home for those who dine at his restaurant.
