- Visited several times - Shawrma was good, yet the portion was less than expected - Every time I go, new staff are hired! - More expensive than several Middle-eastern restaurants I visited - The place is not quite clean

The Almadina is our favourite restaurant in Waterloo! shawarmas and so much more and so incredibly flavourful! Under new supervision recently - huge improvement in staffing and service. Always a great experience.

I was there with a friend and we had the Egyptian Poutine. Every element, rice, sauces, beans, feta... was really very tasty. They make all their own ingredients. I didn't have the Shawarma but it looked really good too. This is a big bowl of happiness. The company has a few locations in Waterloo. This location is casual and well... More

I love the food here. The falafel is my favourite either by itself or in a wrap. Healthy and lots of tasty things here. Good for vegetarians and meat-eaters. Lots of variety. The falafel was my post-exam treat/ comfort food.

Stopped in at 1130 to pick up some pitas to go. Place was disorganized and frankly not prepared to be open. Why I stayed I don't know...actually I do, as there pitas are great. However was disappointed they didn't have beef available and only chicken. I have hygiene concerns as not everything appeared to be fresh and some items were... More

I have bought yummy dips from these folks at the St. Jacob's market so I thought I would stop in at their restaurant. Everything was set up sort of cafeteria style like going to a Subway restaurant. There was a lot of variety. I got some garlic potato salad to take home. It cost $10 for a 500g tub! I... More

There were flies in the kitchen, you will notice spiders and spider webs under tables. The place looks very unhygienic and filthy. They only give 1-2 tea-spoons of chicken in the shawarma, the quantity is much smaller than other shawarma/pita places. Skip this place.

Visited for the first time yesterday for my husband's birthday. Kids both had a manaeesh and enjoyed them. Hubby had the Chicken Shawarma pita. He thought it was great so I had to try some and I have to agree with him. It came with a side of hummus and taboulee and a pop of $9.99 (daily special). Good deal!... More
