  • Sounds like TorontoFoodie had a bad experience, which is unfortunate. If the owner was yelling and distracted while prepping the food, that's not good so I won't defend that. Bad day at the office, I guess. I do want to say my wife and I have had Royal's Shawarma's frequently over the years and they are easily the best in the area. The meat is really well seasoned and their garlic sauce is great as is the kick of their hot sauce on the shawarmas -- which are also huge and a meal on their own. Two newer Shawarma places opened up along Third Line in Oakville over the past year -- Big Grill and another up at Foxcreek Plaza (name escapes me at the moment).....and I guess you always get excited about trying a new place. In the end, we've tried both Big Grill and the other new one....neither held a candle to Royal Shawarma on taste / quality....dry and flavorless by comparison for the same price or more. Royal isn't perfect and doesn't look in any way fancy inside, but if you want an excellent Shawarma, this is the best choice I've found in Oakville without question.

  • This is a totally honest review, I assume the other reviews of this place were by friends.
    To begin the whole time I was there the owner was sitting in the restaurant screaming into the phone in a different language. His wife was working behind the counter who couldn't even have greeted me with eye contact and a smile.
    I had to wait a long time for my shawarma as she continued to yell at her husband while he was yelling into the phone. The food is over priced and not very good, the menu is totally ripped off from Montfords. If you don't believe me check it out.
    Do yourself a favour and keep driving north till you get to the big grill or chefs door.

  • The best Chicken Shawarma sandwich I have ever had. We only go for takeout but the Chicken Shawarma is so good I keep going back. It's fantastically good. If they have their homemade Lebanese buns available (they run out) it is even better, but even on a pita or lavash it is simply amazing. Their baba ghanoush is very good as is their fatoosh salad. My only complaint? The chicken is so good, and I get there relatively infrequently so I cannot bring myself to try anything else!

    Sure it's a hole in the all - quick in and out kind of greasy spoon but who cares. I'd eat that Shawarma sitting on the floor if I had to!

  • Simply the best Chicken Shawarma I have had. I regularly order the "Small" Chicken Shawarma dish (with rice) including their magical Garlic sauce and perfectly balanced hot sauce.

    Though the size is called small, the portion is gigantic! Possibly a little too big. Could stand to have a smaller size with approximately 3/4 of the amount, ideally for $6.00 - $7.00-ish.

    If you like shawarma, you have to try this place.

    I'd like to comment on some of the other menu items, but I can't help myself ordering the shawarma when I go in. Someday.

  • We buy take-out here often. The portion is generous and the taste is amazing. We find ourselves craving a lot the food from this place. The restaurant itself is just plain, but the food is delicious.

  • This is the place on 3rd line that I mentioned in my review of another shawarma place in Oakville. More fast food style but much tastier than the other restaurant, not a whole lot of seating, packed on Fridays. Waiting in line and waiting for the food is the tough bit. Get there before the lunch rush and you'll be fine or call in and place an order before going in and pick up is even better.
