      • Message: I ordered the Shish Tawook plate and Baklava for dessert. Everything was fresh tasting and full of flavor. I especially liked the salad dressing which was refreshing and perfect on the greens. Also, the Baklava was as tasty as it was beautiful. I would like to thank you for the wonderful food which makes these challenging times a bit better. We are lucky to have you in the community!

      • I almost cried last night when I went to go to one of my favorite middle eastern restaurants and it was closed but you know what they say "when one door closes another opens!" . i just happened to be driving up Kempt Rd today and did a double take as I had never seen the sign before and decided what the heck...I'm SO happy I did! Great selection for me being a vegetarian, I ordered the platter so I could try a little of everything and absolutely amazing! I think I just found my new favorite restaurant for middle eastern cuisine!!!

      • We've used Chef Abod catering for several work events over the past few months for gatherings of between 20-125 people and it has always been fantastic! Always so accommodating, helping us reach our price point and accommodating (sometimes LOTS) of dietary restrictions, and there is always more than enough food! Can't say enough good things about Chef Abod, really went out of their way to meet our needs and serves the most delicious food! Thank you!

We will be there again. My son and family have eaten there 3 times recently so we will be back.

  • 5 starThe Chicken Shawarma is nothing short of sensational. I love chicken and Chef Abod's flavors will have you dreaming about it. I've eaten Chicken Shawarma from a number of places, but Chef Abod, you're absolutely number one!

    • Subject amazing

    • Message This place has to be one of the greatest, hidden gems in the city. The food at the cafe is so unbelievably good, that we had them cater out wedding. Over the top every time. I have eaten there often and never been disappointed. If you haven't tried it yet, you are seriously missing out. Thank you to Chef Abod and all the staff for pleasing the palate every time. I'll certainly be seeing you soon

  • thank you!

I've been to Chef Abod's twice now, for lunch. I never knew it existed until a month ago. The lamb Mandi - amazing! The food is good and the prices low, for that level of quality. The waiter is friendly, helpful, and great at his job. I will be a regular!

Was there for the first time Thursday and very much enjoyed my lunch experience, going back on Saturday to try something else on the menu and introducing the restaurant to another friend of mine...

Had another great meal! Great food, good service! So many great, flavourful choices here that I will have to make more trips to Hfx.

Hi, We just wanted to say "it was one of the best dinners we ever had". Most interestingly, we never expected to get an Arab flavor in Halifax, however Chef Abode made it possible. Compliments for your efforts and best wishes for a good future.

I have been to the restaurant a few times I have to say I was nothing but impressed. I have tried a few dishes including the Milk pudding which is a must try. Keep it up Chef Abod. I have taken many friends and recommended many more to attend. Mike

I just wanted to let you know that a couple weeks ago, I had your Iskender Kebab, and it was incredible. Definitely the best thing I had eaten in a long time. I will no doubt be back often! Thanks.
