Aish Tanoor is a completely Kosher Middle Eastern restaurant, serving favourites like hummus and some of the best shawarma in the city.
Owned and run by the ZB Hospitality Group, the origins of this place stretch all the way back to fifties Iraq and sixties Jerusalem, the name referring to the oven that is central to the operation.
The casual space is outfitted with long group tables perfect for the type of meals had here. The walls are decorated with images of Israel, and not only the rotating shawarma spit but the oven too are right out in the open.
The practice of laffa making has been passed down from Fouad Haba to our Toronto restaurant founder Sason Haba. This authentic bread was first pioneered and sold in the Mahane Yehuda Market of Jerusalem.
