You'd really be missing something if you passed by this plain looking cafe

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.

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.

Very healthy food, really appreciate the Hospitality of Antonio. One of the best Server/Manager I have ever encountered. He goes a extra mile to make his guest special. Highly recommended this place !!!

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.

If they add hummas with... More

Two of us stopped by for dinner at 7:30PM on a Thursday, ordered, and took seats at the open table by the window. Since this small establishment only has about a half dozen tables, we observed a steady stream of patrons carry out their food. Our food arrived in fewer than 10 minutes. We enjoyed Taboulleh Salad, Lamb Kibbeh, and... More

Fresh ideas, friendly staff. The best hummus I have ever had! The food is healthy and definitely worth a visit. The restaurant is small and seating limited, but worth the wait.

Had a great meal at this restaurant. The food was fresh, well prepared and provided a multitude of flavours. It was refreshing to see that they didn't offer up just another "Earl Stones Club" menu. I'm definitely going back, not only is it tasty, but healthy too!
