One time, my wife and I had the lamb koft; we enjoyed it, but everything was too dry. Another time, I came in and waited for a good seven minutes while a Japanese server actively ignored me. I am never again coming back to this place.

Best service and delicious food with very reasonable pricing. In summer you might not want to sit inside since it is small and gets very warm.

The food here is fresh, delicious and moderately priced. If you already like middle eastern food, you will love this place. If are not sure, you will be glad you tried it. I highly recommend the cauliflower.

We stopped in here for our last meal during a week long visit to downtown vancouver. It's a small cafe and was very busy during the lunch hour it seems to have plenty of regular customers which spirals volumes to me about the service and food. I had the lamb in cabbage leaf special with tzatsiki and hommous. Portions were... More

Stopped in for lunch on a busy day in December. Although a tiny place with steady clientele, we found a table and ordered what turned out to be very tasty and good food served effortlessly in a minimum of time for a very reasonable price. Plus fast and friendly service! Will definitely return.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
