Tarek's is one of our favorite food joints. Incredibly fresh, delicious foods and smoothies.
They have meat and veggie choices, salads, pitas and full meals. Very relaxed and you can ask for(or will be given) a soup sample while you wait. Eat in or take out. Family owned and both Tarek and his wife are there every day. Staff is great and friendly. A must if visiting Halifax, NS.

My wife and I had lunch here the other day and WOW, this is the house that flavour built. Everything is so fresh and delicious. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Also very clean premises. Tarek's is wheelchair accessible with ample parking. Can be very busy at lunchtime.

If you like freshly made middle eastern food this is a great spot. This little-known gem has huge legion of regular customers that come as much for the down-to-earth hospitality of the owner and staff as they do for the food. When you walk in to order at the counter, you will immediately be offered a sample of the soup. Tarek is famous for his soup and I now know why - the lentil sample I had was perfectly balanced with just the right amount of heat and acidity. I ordered the appetizer combo plate with chicken and received a plate heaping with falafel, tabouleh, pita, hummus, tzatziki, cauliflower, beets, lentil rice, and yet another grain salad - I had a whole meal's worth of food left over! They take cash only, but there is an on-site ATM.

We had a good meal of Middle eastern dishes. The atmosphere is cafeteria and it was a bit confusing first to figure out how to order food and pay.
