Honestly the best Greek restaurant in Ottawa. And this is coming from a Greek friend that is very picky with his Greek food. The food was very flavorful and the service was top notch. We will be back very soon!!!

Food Quality is Superb! Delicious Greek plates and generous portions. I had the Chicken Souvlaki Plate with Greek Salad, Roasted Potatoes and Rice. Everything was Fresh and the Souvlaki Grilled to Perfection. Tzatziki sauce is a MUST!! Heard the Lamb was Amazing so I'll definitely give that a try on my next visit.

I love the food here. Their salads are very fresh, the grilled calamari is delicious, and their lamb is great. This is my favourite Greek restaurant.

Got the gyro with potato and salad sides, all tasty! My one complaint is the salad, it's basically a mountain of lettuce with a couple of olives and pinch of feta on top.

We enjoyed dinner at The Greek Souvlaki Shack on a recent visit to Ottawa. The service was excellent and the food plentiful and authentic. While the restaurant does a brisk take out and Uber Eats business, the dinning area is worth enjoying--small but tastefully decorated--and you can see in to the kitchen which is something I like.

We had our lunch here the other week. Have had Greek street food at many places, this was the best we have had in a long time. Every thing was fresh and service was quick.

The Greek Souvlaki Shack is hands down our favourite restaurant in the city! It has become a second kitchen of sorts because the prices are very reasonable and the quality of the authentic cuisine is unbeatable. The Greek Souvlaki Shack catered 2 events we hosted in the last year and was a huge hit with all our friends and family!... More

Love this little place. Quick and friendly service and their Pork Souvlaki skewer in a pita makes for a delicious lunch!
