  • My family used to go to this place for at least last 10years pretty frequently. When the owner "mr.Sam" use to cook there it was a bit easier to complain right away. For the last couple of years he stopped working there and the place slowly become a nightmare... Service is awful, place is mess, if you try to call to place order for pickup sometimes no one picks orders and you have to go and wait 30 min for food to be prepared. The Dude who makes Shawarmas has a little DVD player on front of him and keeps his eyes on a screen watching movies instead of paying attention to cooking!!
    The food was the only thing kept us coming back with closed eyes on service in messy restaurant but last time we picked sandwiches and started eating them happened something I never experienced before. After couple of bites into my falafel shawarma I felt so painful and heard crackie sound of teeth in my mouth so did hear my hubby... I spitted everything out of the mouth and found a STONE size of little lentil!!!! My teeth were sore for a few hours, luckily no big damage. I was shocked!!! I will never return to Osmow's. BE CAREFUL EATING at THIS PLACE!

  • Order: Chicken shawarma, falafel shawarma, hummus, fries

  • What a surprise! Extremely hungry and in a rush, I make a mistake and went into Pita Nutso at 241 Queen, a few doors down from Osmow's and I am so glad I did. Better wraps, nice folks, and better value for money. An all around win.

    Too bad Restaurantica ignores all user requests for new listings because Pita Nutso deserves a listing here and an opportunity to be better known.

    Their salad, or Naked Pita, is particularly delicious for me. Who needs more bread these days?.

    Two big Chicken, Beef or Veggie Pitas for $10.95 everyday is a particularly good deal. Their split pitas grill up very crisply and the whole wheat flour used gives them a nutty taste, thus their name maybe.

  • Order: Regular Pita, Veggie, and Naked Pita with grilled chicken.

  • I've visited Osmow's since grade 9 and 8 years later it's still the same place with the same food that you can rely on to be absolutely fabulous. The only time I've tried better shawarmas are homemade shawarmas. Yes, I understand the restaurant is small, but it's Streetsville! Why are we asking for so much? Service is bad? Well, it's a FAST FOOD restaurant! Do you go to McDonald to ask for a glass of wine? No.

  • Been frequenting Osmow's Grill since the first week it opened up. It has changed a lot over the past several years. The service has improved over the last year although you must choose wisely when you are going. Not a place to sit down comfortably as it is very small but really good for a cheap/quick meal. Their hot sauce is very good and the shawarmas are definately one of the best in the area.

  • Order: Chicken Shawarma, Philly Cheesesteak

  • I've been going to Osmows for years when I was living in Mississauga. The shawarmas are always good. Their hot sauce is probably the best out their. I've been to that other place down the street pita nuty (nutso) can't remember but their hot sauce is like spicy ketchup lol. Anyways I would recommend Osmows over any shawarma places. If your in a rush just call ahead and order your food. Instead of 30 minutes wait time it will be like 10-15. Enjoy.

  • I go to John Fraser Secondary School, located a few minutes from Osmow's. The school is predominantly East Indian and Middle Eastern, and a lot of my friends recommended Osmow's to satisfy my shawarma craving. So I went with a buddy into Streetsville and we opted to try Osmow's. We walked in to find a fairly dirty, cramped atmosphere, but were quite hungry so we ordered our shawarmas. The wait time was somewhat long, but that could be due to the fact that it was this past summer and people were watching the Fifa World Cup. Anyway, we managed to get a small table and sat down to our lunch. I ordered a regular size medium shawarma and my friend ordered a regular size hot falafel (he's a vegetarian). The first few bites were quite good, but I found as I worked my way down the sandwich it just seemed to lose its flavour, instead becoming a blend of unpleasant spices. On top of this, my shawarma was not properly wrapped and despite my best effort food kept dropping out of it. It got to a point where I couldn't even finish; I was too full in a bad way. My friend didn't like his falafel either and we hastily left the restaurant. Overall, our Osmow's experience was not what we expected. The next time we craved shawarmas we decided to try Pita Nutso. Way better place. Wider, cleaner restaurant, friendly staff, and much better food. We have had Pita Nutso several times and enjoy it very much. Unfortunately Osmow's just doesn't measure up.

  • Order: medium chicken shawarma, veggie falafel

"As you work your way down", you said it yourself, thats how food like this works! Every cylinder shaped food with sauce inside will follow the law of physics "Gravity"!

  • The lady at the cash register is extremely unprofessional, rude and has no clue about anything in the restaurant. They constantly overcharge customers and cant explain why. Food is sub-par and service is at unacceptable levels. Do yourself a favour and avoid this place!

  • I ate at Osmows and that was it the service suk, the hospitality has no place there, the food discusting, the owner sheets you with 3 OZ of chicken if he is generous at that time because he is not selling that much, all workers are depressed, over all I will never ever eat there not to mention how dirty that Restaurant is ,,,and to have a sandwich you have to wait 30 minutes it is not even to wait a minute in that restaurant

  • The owner of Osmow’s grill and all employees say the food is Halal but they have not taken the initiative to put it on the board outside, or on the menu, nor do they have a Halal certificate.

    I’m not sure if this restaurant is a Halal restaurant obviously because there is no proof.
