About Us

Welcome to Sababa Fine Foods Ltd.
Proudly serving the community since 1987.
Celebrating 25 years this year

Did you know that the word Sababa means something wonderful? For example, if someone were to ask you, “How was your meal?”
You would answer, “Sababa!!!”

Sababa has been open since 1987. Thanks to you, our loyal customers who have been coming and raising your kids on our food. Sam Azar, owner, has been in the restaurant business for over 40 years. He opened his first restaurant in Toronto at Bathurst and Eglinton. Sam then opened two other restaurants before he opened his final dream project; a restaurant, grocery, an bakery all in one. In April of 1987, Sababa officially opened with 40 seats and one employee. 22 years later Sababa seats 120 people, has a 4200 square foot grocery, a bakery that makes fresh pita everyday, and employs 31 full and part time employees.

Middle East food has become quite popular in Toronto with over 300 Middle East restaurants in the greater Toronto area. Sababa has won the Consumers Choice Award (conducted by Gallup Polls) for best Middle East Restaurant in Toronto for 1998 to present. We have also won awards for best pita; best Falafel and best Lentil Soup in Toronto. Sam has his four boys running the family business now, but you will always find Sam at Sababa making sure everything runs smoothly.

We look forward to many more years at Sababa.
