When brothers Georges and Haytham Rahmeh purchased the Cedar Valley Lebanese Food restaurant from its previous owners in December 2016, they did so with the intention of putting their own personal touch on both the decor and the menu.

In addition they plan to transform the restaurant from a small, private business into a higher level establishment in order to attract new investors and create new jobs which will support the economy.

The makeover has already begun. As for the menu, the brothers are still working on items which they plan to test drive over the coming weeks.

The idea is to offer customers Lebanese delicacies beyond the standard shawarma, falafel, kafta, and Fattouche salad.

“The sign on the front of the restaurant says ‘Cedar Valley Lebanese Food’, not ‘Cedar Valley Shawarma’,” explains

Haytham who managed an award-winning international hotel in Beirut.

But the restaurant’s loyal regulars needn’t worry; the brothers still plan to place the main focus on their popular chicken and beef shawarma sandwiches, freshly-made tabbouleh and hommos, and a Fattouche salad featuring Haytham’s secret dressing.

“Lebanese food is the healthiest fast food you can eat,” says Georges. “Everything is made to order using the freshest ingredients.”

Besides the standard items you can find at most shawarma restaurants, the menu at Cedar Valley also includes Lamb Kebabs, Lamb Chops, Quail, Shrimp.

Cedar Valley is also well-known for their homemade desserts including the tastiest Baklava in town. What they are not so well known for is their catering service, which is Haytham’s specialty.

Establishing a menu for a catered event allows Cedar Valley to offer a long list of Lebanese specialties that are not on the daily menu. “We can do events from 50 people to 500 people, no problem,” says Haytham.

Customer service is what Haytham and Georges are all about. They want each and every customer to feel welcome from the moment they walk through the door, hence the brothers’ desire to makeover the inside of the restaurant.

A renewed focus on customer service also means a renewed focus on customer feedback, especially as it relates to items on the current menu and the new items they plan to introduce in the coming weeks.

“It’s very important that you listen to your customers and try to give them more of what they like,” says Haytham.

With that type of philosophy in mind, Cedar Valley will continue to provide its customers with delicious Lebanese food in a bright and inviting environment – and who can ask for more than that.

Finally, the brothers would like to thank every single client for their support during the previous few months and will they will do their best to avoid any issues during the transition period.

Cedar Valley Restaurant is open Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and is located in the Orleans Garden Shopping Centre at the corner of Jeanne d'Arc Blvd. and Orléans Blvd. (see map). They're phone number is 613-590-0372.
