★★ Assalam u Alaikum Brothers/Sisters.
I always want to give a quick background of the eating scenario. I have a family of 4, who eat like we are of 8. We are from Lahore, Pakistan and review restaurants honestly and sincerely with Allah in mind.
This store was relatively new, and we saw ads for this place in our local Masjid. We were just headed to go to the store next door when one of us noticed that this place happened to be near it. So we decided we should order just one shawarma just to test run the store. We walked in and the worker/chef was not at the counter. I walked through the door again to make sure he had heard the ringer and then did he come up. I happened to see a special going on: any shawarma with fries and a canned drink is $8. So I went ahead and ordered a chicken kabab with that deal. He told me it would take him a while, and I wasn't too happy by the way he had said this, yet I proceed with the order. I waited for a total of 25 minutes, out of the 10 minutes I was told. Eventually, he asked me what I wanted in the wrap. After I told him, he placed about 3-4 articles of each thing I had added, such as lettuce and onion, which was definitely low for the price. I was given the order and charged $9+, including tax. I opened it up in the car to find the shawarma was good, but nothing special. I had seen him take it out of the freezer and put it on the skillet, so I had already known it wasn't going to be anything fresh-tasting. So the wrap was good, but of course the fries were fake, so they tasted much like nothing. And of course the drink was the drink.
Overall, it was a quick food to eat, which took a while to make. The owner seemed tired and not completely interested. He had come out of the kitchen just to watch the tv was placed in the dining area in the front of the store.
I'm not claiming this to be the case, however I have heard from more than atleast 5 sources that the people who have the 'JustEat.ca' sticker on their store front are all part of this eat halal group, which supports rules that kosher is also considered halal. Religiously, I am not a backer of this concept, nor the spreading of the people my family has conversed with, so I'm not supporting either statement whether the food is halal or not. However, I would urge all brothers/sisters to bring this matter up and converse about it on their own.
This was pretty average food but with the price being a bit high and the chef a little out of it, I would have to given my experience overall poor.
Assalam u Alaikum. :) Posted on December 27, 2012
