We are a family-owned restaurant offering a taste of the middle east that has yet to be offered. Being of Syrian-Lebanese origin we have made Canada our home and wanted to share with others the meal that brings the most joy to our families and reminds us of where we come from. Mashawi simply translates to "grilled meal" which is a meal that consists of a variety of different meats each prepared in its unique way, charcoal grilled. At MASHAWI we are proud to say that we have brought this authentic experience along with our family's 50+ years old recipes right to the heart of Waterloo. We invite you, your friends and family to join us and put these heartwarming flavors to test.
