For some delicious, authentic Middle Eastern food in the Okotoks area, visit Almira’s Restaurant. With its locally influenced menu, it is a true example of diversity in the Okotoks.

Food This Restaurant Has to Offer

Almira's keeps its authenticity of the food while still being able to accommodate the various needs and tastes of its customer base. Get a gyro or kebab grilled to perfection seasoned with a tasty blend of Middle Eastern spices.

As an appetizer, the hummus and pita bread is definitely recommended. The good news is that they have wheat pita for those that prefer it over white. Canadians from all walks of life will appreciate the Canadian/Mediterranean inspired fusion of poutine made with lamb or chicken donair meat in the sauce.

The absolute, best ending to and Arab meal is a baklava, which is a phyllo dough smothered in honey and topped with nuts. Have that with Arabic coffee or tea, which are stronger than the average coffee and tea.  All of the food is made to order and fresh.

Almira's owners live up to this reputation well when they warmly greet each guest with a smile and provide an authentic experience for all to enjoy. While the place is small, it is nicely decorated.
