How it All Started

Les Saj founders Mohamad, Rochelle and Adam have one common denominator as all of them are “foodie”. They always love to experience new heights of food tasting, cook and explore new restaurants.
When they moved to Winnipeg they realized that there’s a need for authentic Middle Eastern food and people in Winnipeg appreciates and love to experience Mediterranean cuisine. Their passion is to create the food from scratch and turn it to great traditional flavored food and share it with others. Les Saj Restaurant opened its door on April 1, 2017 and continues to serve Winnipeg in its 3rd successful year.

The name Les Saj formulated from the word “saj” which means a dome or convex metal griddle which is widely used in the Middle East particularly in the countries and regions of the Levant (Cyprus, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria and Turkey) in baking flatbread or “saj breads”, known commonly compared to “pita bread”.
