Iskender Kebab House Turkish Cuisine image
Iskender Kebab House Turkish Cuisine
Turkish restaurant
👍👍 We found ourselves in the neighbourhood around dinner time. I was a little hesitant about this place because the reviews were either 5 stars (most of them) or very low. But I’m happy we discovered this place. Pictured are 1.5 portions of Iskender and 1.5 Adana. Both were delicious. These are very la...

Sandwich shop
👍👍 We had candied club chicken and italiano. The bread is nice and chewy. I loved the candied chicken one but It’s on the sweeter side. It’s probably better to add some hot pepper in. Reasonable price, fast service. We would definitely try this place again.

Balista - Ottawa, Pure Veg. Indian Fusion
Indian restaurant
🫤 I was really glad to see an Indian Pure vegetarian restaurant on the food scene in Ottawa. However, the food doesn't do any justice to the name or the reviews this place has had. I was utterly disappointed with what I was served. The pizza was merely some melted cheese on a thick base with obnoxious...

Fritomania image
Fast food restaurant
👍👍 The best poutine joint in Orleans, hands down. What sets them apart is that they use peanut oil in their gravy, giving it a rich and bold taste. Plus, prices are very reasonable as a large is only $8. Lineup was not long for a Friday evening. Be aware that they only accept cash.

😠 I ordered the chicken wrap with poutine. Unfortunately, hair was found in my wrap. The management was very accommodating. They did not charge me for the meal I didn't eat. And gave me 2 gift certificates worth $25. Each. I will try this restaurant again and give them another chance.

👍👍 What a wonderful studio! I am a new member and have been practicing for 6/6 days since joining. The staff are very professional and you are always greeted with open arms. There are a variety of yoga classes to choose from and each instructor puts their own spin on it. It can be challenging at time...
