The best late night falafel and shawarma in Toronto are garlic sauce-filled wraps that are available well past midnight. Satisfy your cravings for sandwiches or plates filled with deep-fried chickpea balls or juicy chicken—or both—at these nocturnal joints.
Here’s the best late night falafel and shawarma in Toronto.3 - Chamsine on St. Clair
Open until 3 a.m. daily, this humble spot right by St. Clair West station offers fresh and huge portions for really good prices. Their shawarma wraps and platters are especially massive, and they have a great garlic sauce too.
7 - Osmow's on Queen

10 - Zaad
While definitely casual, this restaurant right outside of Spadina station is far from grimey. Find it open until 2 a.m. daily, serving up satisfying meals of chicken shawarma platters and wraps with a tiny touch of class for a fast food spot.
11 - Laziza
Open until 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 a.m. every other day, this takeout spot right off Ossington on Bloor does juicy, tender shawarmas and killer falafel. These crispy balls use tons of parsley, giving it a green hue that’s a sight for sore eyes at the end of a long day.

5 - Ghazale
There’s a number of Ghazales around the city, but this location wins for being conveniently located near Bathurst station and being open until 3 a.m. every day. You can grab some freshly squeezed juice with your falafel order while you’re at it.
6 - Lebanon Express
Operating until 4 a.m. on every day except Sunday, this counter right at Yonge and College always has daily deals on wraps. Their combos are always big too, and you can always depend on a great Arabic music video playing on their TV while you eat.
8 - Alexandria Falafel
The earliest this spot ever closes is 2:30 a.m., meaning on most days you can grab cheap sandwiches and plates until 4 a.m. This spot also has a reputation for friendly staff, which is great incentive to head over to Queen and Dufferin for a snack.
9 - Istanbul Shawarma
Located right at College and Bathurst, this chill eatery stays open until 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and until 3 a.m. on Thursday. There’s plenty of booth seats to devour your shawarma in after a night of partying at Sneaky Dees across the street.
