I think this place has aspirations to be a chain. Only one location now. Loved the interior decor for a fast food place and the LCD menu board. Menu board has pictured of everything which is great for selection and to help those who are unfamiliar with the food. Lots fo vegetarian and vegan options.
I am a bit of a falafel snob. I ordered one here. The balls were in a holding pan in the food area. They were prefried and I did not see if they reheated them or if they were just hot. However, they were not very crispy - hot and crispy, freshly fried is the only real way to go. Plus the balls were way too big in my opinion. Perhaps they will consider this. Maybe they could offer the option of fresh fried if you are willing to wait.
The pita is regular run of the mill flat pita - cannot remember if i was offered a choice. Then they put on some sauces, hot sauce, lettuce, tomato. It comes with tabbouleh but i don't like it so I added onions. There ws was no offer of feta cheese - I like cheese. They then put on some weird purple pickled turnip which I know is traditional, but I don't like it and don't think it adds anything.
Anywas the pita ended up being very filling and pretty good and tasty. And it was less than $6. All in all a good deal. I would come back if in the area. But right now no one beats the falafel place in Brentwood mall for falafel balls done right!!
I used to live in Downtown Vancouver with easy access to Shawarma restaurants on davie and denman. When I moved to the Burbs one of the things I missed was some of the food which wasnt nearly as prevalent or tasty as it was in the Downtown Core. Recently I spoted this Falafel place and introduced it to some friends who live in Vancouver and I'm proud to say that they now travel to Langley every few weeks just to enjoy the Shawarma plates. I've had the Chicken and the Lamb Shwarma and although they dont have quite the same tahini based sauce as the Falafel King did on Denman, it is amazingly deliscious and I definitly get my fix of Shawarma craving satisfied each time I have ordere food here. I've ordered to-go and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food, Same for the dine in experience. The restaurant is clean and I encourage any fraser Valley residents to enjoy some of the food here. Yes it does look like it is gearing up to try and do a franchise and it certainly provides a healthy alternative. I read the history of the place and I believe the owner used to run one of the Falafel places in Downtown Vancouver which explains the good tasting food ! :) We have eatne here three times in the past 2 months and have been happy with all three experiences. :) Thank-you. to get there you get out at the 264 street exit off hwy 1 and then head north. pull into the Mc Donald's area and then drive around the back of McD's and you will find some parking. :)
I am so glad we found this place. My husband and I were thinking where to eat after a good walk in the zoo, and since we opted out of the fast food at the zoo, and seeing the sign across, we decided to give this place a try, and had no regrets about it. Food was fantastic, service as well, and the atmosphere was outstanding for a fast food restaurant. My kids are picky eaters, but they ate the whole hummus bawl and their soups with no fuss. For that, we had to try their deserts, and they too were very delicious,... and everything was risibly priced.
Tried this place after driving by and seeing their terrific sign go up recently.
I love shawarmas and have been trying to find a really good one here in Canada since my time spent living in the Middle East. This place is immediately surprising upon entering in the fact that it looks like it is straight out of Western Europe. Very modern and clean. Their food is made fresh daily and it shows. Falafels here are as they should be, crispy on the outside and melt in your mouth. I can honestly say I have never eaten a better shawarma (and I have tried many of the places here locally and in Vancouver). Their chicken is incredible, and they don't drown it in sauce. I can't remember the last time I received 4-star sit-down service in a quick-serve fast-food restaurant, if ever. Their staff here are wonderful and very well trained in customer service. I have been back weekly to sample their interesting vegan options as well. Best part might be that I get change from a $10 bill with a drink and dessert added and their portions are huge. Have found my new favourite local restaurant! Yum. Thank-you Holy Falafel!
