So bad/si mauvais

the food was bad with no choice at all the cashier and waitress were forcing us to take a combo and making remarks we wre too slow to choose. we paid 15$ for a sandwich, a drink, a very bad salad on a cardboard plate with plastic forks no knifes. awful will never come back la nourriture était sans gout, il n'y avait pas de choix. le personnel et le caissier étaient impolis. 15$ plus taxes pour un mauvais trio dans des assiettes en carton. Terrible, nous ne reviendrons jamais.

Not the best in town

I wasn't pleased with the service, food or cost. The service was really slow and grumpy and there were only a couple other people in line ahead. I ordered a platter, they do not include hummus in the platter, there is an extra cost ($). They were not generous at all with any of the toppings, I ordered and paid for extra garlic sauce (which is okay but not the greatest, despite the name) and there was little difference between my order and my partner's dish that did not order extra garlic sauce. The pieces of pita bread are pre-cut!? How can you make a shawarma with pre-cut bread? I think the pre-cut pita pieces totaled to only one regular sized pita, definitely not enough bread for a platter. The pita was served in a dinky little cookie pastry bag that ended up getting dried out. For the cost, it was not worth it, there are so many other places in Ottawa to choose from, I won't be going back. The only great thing about the meal was the tabbouleh- it was fantastic.

Nothing special

I went with a friend who was raving about this place, saying it was the best in Ottawa, etc. and I thought it was VERY overrated. The place is kinda strange, doesn't seem all that clean, and the owner just hanging around and coming to talk to you while you are eating is the most annoying thing ever. When I ordered, they seemed a bit confused, and kept trying to sell me a drink when I said like three times that I didn't want one. Their shwarma is also more expensive than other places and nothing special.

Free sample plate on the first visit and after not being in for 6 months they remembered my usual order. My favorite is the beef steak shawarma. I've never been disappointed. I enjoy the jokes and banter - I grew up with a similar style of humour at home. They've changed locations, moving out of Orleans to a location near the NRC Campus at Blair and Montreal Rds. The new spot is ..... well, new. It hasn't accumulated the letters of thanks from various organisations and none of 'The Garlic King's' awards are up on the walls. Missing too are the photos from fans around the world. That's why atmosphere takes a hit.

The food is great! But I can't stand the cashier. His jokes are never funny, most of the time he is just really awkward. Like when he asks you how you are and replies with "I'm fat". I notice other customers pretending like they don't hear him lol! Every time I pay cash he 'jokes' that it is counterfeit, which it isn't. Makes for an embarrassing experience. If it wasn't for him, I would go more often.

Totally overated, I don't know why it's the most famous shawarma place in the city, o ya probably because of the guy driving around in his van yelling. The food is decent, not overly good. The service is good though. The short guy is funny, but gets annoying.

Everytime I'm craving for lebanese food, there is only one place that comes to mind and that is the Garlic King's Place. Defitnetly the best garlic ever, the Fatoush is to die for! My hubby and I always enjoy Mr. Azzi's service, and yes his jokes. Which I must add, for people that dont have a sense of humour will deffitnetly will not get the joke lol. I rate the food an overall 10! We always get extra more than what we ask for with no extra cost, the jokes are free and the smiles are free, once in a while even the baklawas are free.....ummmmm Yes, Adel, you can do anything! I recommend this garlic heaven 100%

The food is excellent. That being said, the fact that they don't take credit cards (and make a snarky remark about it when you come to pay) and don't deliver (even though the owner drives a huge kitched-up van around all the time, are both reasons for not returning. There is no need to insult customers or make them feel bad because the management doesn't think offering normal payment options in the 21st century is required. Do a better job on that, add delivery service, and it will be worth while.

Since my friends have told me about the Garlic King, it has been my best Lebanese restaurant. The food is fresh and the vegetables are always prepared daily. The fatoush salad and the humus are to die for.

I've eaten here several different times with the same order (with different salad accompanyments in the platters), and I have to say that the SELECTION and QUALITY of salads available are the absolute best in the city IMHO. Don't just take the standard Fatoush salad here (although it is excellent), every one of the other salads is out of this world! On the downside, thier hummus is not the best in the city, by my taste (nonetheless it is quite palatable). This place is so popular (with good reason) that one should expect to wait outside to place your order; however, I would like to see some improvement in their counter service in that regard (there's only one cash). "Dave" and "The King" are both real jokers, and like to maintain verbal banter with their customers as they file through; so, instead of accusing them of assault-with-attempted-humour, come prepared with your wits about you, and you'll be able to extract the maximum value from the experience, because there's certainly nothing else to be derived from the ambiance of this take-away counter and its cafeteria seating. The food is GREAT, and worth waiting for, nonetheless! :-)

Your food taste great. I like your garlic sauce. But I don't like your jokes. Some of my friends feels the same way. We like your food but your jokes are not funny. If you stop making stupid jokes - I'll oder more often.

The food is fine but you need to stop making jokes for not everyone that I have talked to in the past likes your jokes especially your short helper in the front. In fact they, including myself find it offensive and repulsive. You want to have a better rating? Stop telling jokes, a simple hello is fine already to all your customers. Just serve the food just like any other restaurant.
