I happened to be driving along Lawrence E. at lunch time yesterday, got a shawarma craving, and saw Farhat Restaurant. As soon as I walked in I knew I'd come to the right place. There were 4 HUGE shawarma skewers cooking! Beef, lamb, and chicken (not sure of the 4th--maybe another chicken), all halal meat.
This place is in a strip mall, near Nasr Foods (I think that's the name), on the north side of Lawrence E. between Pharmacy and Warden.
Shawarmas are $3.50 each or 2/$5.99. I had a lamb shawarma with all the fixings--delicious and juicy. All toppings nice and fresh: lettuce, parsley, tomatoes, sauces, pickled turnips (a little on the neon side). I'll be back--best shawarma I've had in Toronto.
I can't comment on the falafel or kabob. Everyone else was ordering shawarmas too.
