The Best Souvlaki and Gyros in Toronto

The best souvlaki and Gyros in Toronto represent Greek food at its finest, typically signified by tin foil, styrofoam and lots of eating with your hands. In this city, we like to wrap our gyros and souvlaki in pita and accompany them with lots of tzatziki, but there's no wrong way to eat these delicious meats.

Here's the best souvlaki and gyros in Toronto.

Located on Pape, this restaurant is reliable for gyros and souvlaki made using fresh chicken and pork, but food cooked on an outdoor spit on certain days is a great bonus. The tzatziki here is made using an old traditional family recipe.
