“Phoenicia in Toronto”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

My mom and dad went to the Phoenicia Restaurant in Scarborough and told me how much they loved the food. So I thought I would see for myself, and all I can say is I had the Schwarma Chicken Platter. It was the best schwarma I ever had, and I would highly recommend this Restaurant. They have only been open 2 months so far, and they deserve a great review for the food and service they provided me. I can't wait to go back, the portions where huge and delicious!

“It was ok”
Reviewed 11 November 2012

My cousin and I dined here on a Thursday night. It was our first visit. When we arrived, there was one other table in the restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful to start, and then she left without telling us. The waitress that took over for her was nice as well, just not very attentive. I have mixed feelings about the food as well. For a starter we shared the Bil Jibneh and I must say it fantastic. I would go back and order that again. For the main course we shared the mixed grill platter. I was very disappointed. There was not a lot of flavour and the meat was very dry. The portion size was large with alot of pita and garnishes. I didn't find it over priced but it's not cheap. The atmosphere was lovely and I would like to go back on a busier night to see if the service and the food improves.

“Got scammed by the waitress”
Reviewed 28 September 2012

It was a fun meal...until the waitress decided to help herself to a nice tip. When splitting the bill evenly among each person, she overcharged us each over $2 on the debit/credit transaction machine. She made no efforts to make the correction when confronted. Management also didn't make any effort to apologize or return the overcharge. Triple check the bill and calculation before paying!

“Good Lebanese Food”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

The food was great but a little pricy. The portions were good too. The service was slow. We ordered Lamb which was good but I have had better at other Greek restaurants. We went on a Saturday night and the place was busy with big parties as there was live music & belly dancing. May be a week night would have been a better choice to go to this restaurant.

“Slow service but tasty food”
Reviewed 9 April 2012 via mobile

We used to visit the Chinese restaurant formerly in this spot for its convenient location. We found the food here delicious and filling but the service was inattentive- and considering how few customers there were, it seemed odd for the waitress to be so distracted. Seemed like a place that catered more to large parties than couples, but I suppose anyone can have an off night.
