We have been coming here at least 2-3 times per month and always happy with service and food. Only time I wasn't overly satisfied was last week when we came with a friend from Toronto and I was boasting about how good this place was and the chicken was dry. :( it was around 6 pm and they might have...

Fresh and tasty. The shish combo has three kababs - one beef, one chicken and one lamb (ground and formed). Made fresh, they are a whole lot of good food, with the two types of rice, garlic sauce, and hummus and pita. My husband and I can make a meal of one plate - and enough left over for lunch... More

After an evening of shopping in Mayfield Common, a friend and I decided to stop in for a bite. We shared the spicy shrimp appetizer, which was plentiful (approximately 8) and phenomenal tasting (sauce you could drink)!! I went on to have the chicken shish kabob and the flavor of the various spices on the meat and in the rice... More

My Lebanese friend suggested this place to me and I can tell you that the food was amazzzing! I absolutely loved the falafels and the grilled veggies. I gave them a four star because the food was great but the atmosphere was pretty low key for a weekend night. Definetly worth a shot!

The Falafal plate was dry, boring, cold, and tasteless and the waitress kept calling me "dear" which I abhor but I would not have complained had I not gotten the bill for $8 for a pot of ordinary tea for one. I walked out swearing I would never go back and I won't.

We dropped in late on a Saturday night as a first-time visit for a simple bite after a show. We left $100 later - what a rip off! When we asked for the bill, we got to know about the $10 cover charge and 15% fixed gratuity. It cost $32 before drinks, cover charge, and tips. The food was poor... More

The wraps, falafel and the chicken and beef rice dishes all very good. But one thing i wasnt too pleased at is that they list couscous on their menu in the downtown location, but everytime i order it, they say they have ran out (happened 3 times), so obviously they discontinued it but whenever someone orders it they lie and...

This place is a joke! I paid 40 dollars for dry chicken rice meal. There are no service at what so ever, staff were not polite at all or willing to take the time to explain themenu to us.
