We're the Al-Soufi's, the family behind Downtown Toronto's first Syrian restaurant and cafe.
We've got two specialties in our kitchen: manaeesh & knafeh, which we prepare daily with the best ingredients and utmost care.
At Soufi's, the world of traditional Syrian street food is brought to life by Queen West's vibrant and welcoming atmosphere. Our family is your family, so come on in and let us take care of you!
Our family is headed by Husam and Shahnaz Al-Soufi, and their three children are Alaa, Jala and Ayham. We immigrated to Canada in October 2015 (with the exception of Jala, who arrived in 2012 to attend the University of Toronto). We were inspired to open up Soufi's by our love for our Syrian culture, music, and delicious home-made food. Many generations of Al-Soufi's and Syrian families alike have grown up with the sweet cheesy taste of Knafeh for weekend brunch, and a colorful variety of freshly baked Manaeesh over a big family breakfast. So, we thought: why not bring the authentic taste of Syria to Toronto, our new home? At Soufi's, we're dedicated to serving the most traditional, authentic, and flavorsome Syrian food to our customers. Ultimately, our goal and hope is to transport Torontonians to the vibrant, bustling streets & markets of Damascus with every bite...
