Very friendly family owned restaurant. The menu is great with a lot of variety. We often get take out and the portions are a great size. Food is always tastey and delicious. Garlic sauce is yummy!

Very clean restaurant, very nice people and food is always fresh. My husband and I always order chicken Shawarma and it NEVER disappoints. I am also gluten free, and this is my go-to meal in a pinch. Don't hesitate - you won't be disappointed. Julie

This is one of the best shawormas I have ever had, at least in North America. The restaurant is a small family operated business, very fast in seeving once the order is made.

We ordered some takeout from 1001 Nights Shawarma. The platter come in large potions more than enough for on person. They have a good selection of meats, salads and side to choose from. The food tasted good but the rice could be a bit more flavourful.

The meat portions in their wraps and platters are very generous and the sides are exceptional. We visited Ottawa later and checked out their best rated shawarma restaurant. The service... More
