Thank you, now I'll make sure to skip this place.
btw.... my lunch time shawarma place is Les Grillades over Allium. Not a fan of the reheated potatoes but everything else is great.

Just opened a few days ago. I like to try all the new foodie spots in my 'hood. (Wellington Village that is, not Hintonburg or Westboro. A combo of the best of those two worlds.)
Well ... I was hopeful for a new Shawarma/Sub shop near by because I'm not a big fan of the Istanbouli on Holland.
What to order ? The friendly staff showed me the pre-sliced factory made donair meat from the fridge when I inquired about the donair. Nix.
Not in the mood for a sub.
Shawarma. What ? not on a spit ? ... but what they called 'pan shawara'.
They gave me a sample of the chicken shawarma meat from the warm holding bin. (it looked like a large slow cooker .. I really think it was a large slow cooker.)
Chicken tasted just OK but no tasty brown bits you get from the spit. Oh well. Thumbs down on the $6.99 Shawarma.
Also got a slice of pepperoni pizza for a snack (for later). Ahhhh .... what a disaster ! A soft over microwaved slice that was sitting around for hours and hours. At $3.50, a shame.
Summary. I'm NOT going back (unless they under go major changes).
Growing/opening pains for Mr. Shawarma and Subs ?
If you check my record, this is one of the few negative reviews I have ever made here in the last 5 years. But I just had to do it. Others please try ... if you will ... and I hope you have a better experience.
(Prediction: Mr. Shawarma and Subs will be gone in less than 18 months ... without said changes. Sad.)
