Boustan is just the best shish taouk/shawarma experience ever. The staff on Ste-Catherine is just amazingly friendly, just today for New Year (as they were supposed to be already closed at 5am) the owner was giving out free pitas and garlic potatoes to the homeless and to passerbys, which just goes to show how thoughtful and generous they are. Regardless of that episode, the food is worth the stop even when you have to pay for it! I've tried other places and always found myself disappointed I didn't have Boustan's instead. Props to them for such an amazing job!
"Excellent food. Staff was nice and helpful. Food tasted very fresh. I first ate here 4 years ago and it was just as delicious this time around. Definitely a place I want to visit anytime I'm in Montreal!"
"Must try the Creation. It was a secret until not too long ago. Trust me! The location is perfect for a quick bite before/after going out or if you just want great food. Very well priced and quick service."
