“Authentic Lebanese cuisine in Iqaluit!”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Excellent Lebanese style cuisine available just steps away from the main terminal of the Iqaluit airport. The shawarmas are very good and loaded with goodies. Even vegetarians will find something to eat here (difficult in a meat eating society) and if middle easter treats are not your thing, they also make pizza. Sweet tooth? Try the baklava!

“Depends on when you go.”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

Hola! I have eaten here twice, I love donairs so I went for the donair both times. The first time I had it, beef was a little dry, donair sauce was runny, not tasting the greatest... BUT I went there a second time, had the exact same thing and IT WAD DELICIOS! I don't know if they changed the donair sauce or the meat was fresher than the last time but who knows. It all depends on when you go I guess!

“Amazing experience! !”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

the food at this place is really really amazing. It's all fresh and the flavours are authentic. Not only are the process really great considering you're up north, the staff is really accomidating. I read a comment about the prices being high, but if you compare the prices and the actual quality of food with the rest of the restaurants, yummy shawarma and pizza is definitely worth it. And the pizza and pasta taste great as well.

“Shawarma!”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

What a surprise to eat Lebanese for far North. A bit pricy, but expected due to the location. Ate here on the way in and out.

“Arctic Shawarma anyone?”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Ordered dinner here and had it delivered to the Arctic Hotel. Beef Shawarma was excellent and everything I expected. Delivery was also quick. Cost was expensive, which is the average for Iqaluit. Don't expect cheap for delivery food!!!
