Place is always busy but the service is usually pretty quick. Food is good. Portion sizes are smaller than before in the platters in my opinion. The donair, lamb and chicken all taste good. I quit coming for a long time due to the mistakes on orders. I would ask for no garlic sauce but I would get home and... More

This place has the BEST donairs that no other place I've been to has been able to match. I've just stopped trying donairs from anywhere else... these are just too good. I'm ruined for all future donairs from other shops (and can I mention how huge they are and how much they stuff these things!). By the way, can we... More

fantastic spot. 16 bucks will get you a massive shwarma and drink. (Or some excellent baklava) Fast service, and extremely welcoming. These guys put customer service first.

Get the garlic sauce on your Donair. Like I said, this is the best Donair in Calgary. Great service, food and value. Make sure to get lots of napkins.

Long standing patron. Falafal--cooked while u wait--is the best. Fresh....yum. Very busy place so don't be surprised if you have have to "wait"....cuz even tho it might be "fast"; well prepared food still needs a moment or ten.....

Quantity over quality these days.... I feel like the portions are massive, but not as good quality. Always had a solid donair, but there's competition now

We stopped here after we found it on trip advisor. We both had medium chicken donairs and they were huge and delicious. Outstanding customer service. They offered us samples as we had never been there. Picked up baklava for a party and it was a big hit as well. We'll be back!

Wow! Do not go in this place if you love Mediterranean food! I was in shawarma heaven and there were olives everywhere, yum! Great store to visit to get things to go or stay. Delicious food and lots of choices. Friendly staff! A must visit if you are in Calgary.

Great variety of Mediterranean food. Their pitas are so fresh and are wonderful with their chicken. Great service as well, I would highly recommend.
