My husband and I visited Abdul’s for lunch on a recent trip. The place was busy with regulars which is always a good sign so we didn’t mind the wait. We both like our food decently spicy so when my husband was asked “mild, medium...More

We ordered a falafel dinner, a falafel wrap, and an extra side of tabbouleh for takeout. We were told there would be a 15 minute wait, which was okay with us. It seemed like it took that long to heat up the oil in the...More

I love their Shawarma wrap using Halal meats. My favourite is the beef or lamb. Make sure you want it spicy, there's something about that spice.

Been to this place a couple of times to grab a quick bite in the middle of the afternoon and it never disappoints. Tasty no nonsense sandwiches and good service.

the best shwarma in town. Abdul is very professional and the food is fresh and delicious. The place is in Crystal Mall but there is an entrance from Kingsway road. Note: Everything is cash.

I am a die hard fan of Mediterranean cuisine specially Shawarmas. But this place gave a shock not to have the Shawarmas again. The chicken and lamb meat were so overcooked that it was missing any kind of aroma(God knows if the cook has put...More
