“savour the delights of the Middle East”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Want to savour the delights of the Middle East Arab culinary feasts then visit this excellent restaurant. The location is conveniently located near a movie theatre, the Bayshore major shopping mall, bus stops and a vibrant Middle East community. There is a wide selection of Arab cuisine all of which is prepared onsite using fresh ingredients. I particularly recommend the beef shawarma and falafel salad. The ambiance is superb. The service is friendly and prompt. The staff is friendly. This restaurant has take out and seating. It serves families, large groups and individuals. A good sign is the presence of Middle East customers. A palace indeed!

“Really good food!”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

My boyfriend and I walked past here one day and had to try it. The smell from outside was wonderful and made us both hungry. We shared a platter that had chicken, beef, two kinds of rice and various sauces/vegetables. It was delicious!
The place was packed and it took a little while to get our food (about 10-15 minutes), but it really wasn't that long and the food was hot and tasty. One of the tastier shawarma places in the West End.

This is the best shawarma I have ever been to. The portions are huge, so you need to share. Mixed chicken and beef shawarma cost $13 and it was hellll awesome and delicious!

“Best Shawarma in town”
Reviewed 24 August 2013 via mobile

We eat Shawarma quite regularly and have a couple of places we regularly frequent. I had heard this place was good so I googled best shawarma in Ottawa and this came up multiple times. It's true-the servings are huge and quality is excellent. We always share a mixed plate (hubby and myself) and sometimes we feel like there wasn't enough food for both of us but this was certainly not true here. Hummus was creamy and delicious, a generous amount of meat, potatoes and rice was provided and salad was fresh and crispy. Very affordable meal for two and healthy as well.

We went on a Friday night at about 9:00 and the place was pretty busy. Many different types people were eating here too. Someone mentioned that this was a Harvey's restaurant previously which is true. It is not a fancy place by any means but it's Shawarma not French cuisine.

We'll be back very soon!

“SHAWARMA KING'S”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We wanted to try chicken shawarma before we left Ottawa. So we went to the Shawarma Palace at 2440 Bank Street. It's not a seat down restaurant, but the atmosphere is great. We waited approx. 30 minutes in line, but I gotta say it was well worth the wait. The staff behind the counters were great. Very happy to be their and served out BIG generous portions. You can split the one meal between 2 people. One last thing, the food tasted great. Enjoy!
