Great Middle-Eastern Food

Eaten here and got take out several times. Usually order the dinner for two platter. Reasonably price and you get enough food for two dinners.

The restaurant has been in business for what seems like forever. They stick to what they know and they do it well!! Hummos, Tabbouleh, Maza Platter are all so fresh and tasty. For lunch, the Falafel or Chicken or Lamb sandwiches are to die for. Groups can easily share meals and the food is cooked perfectly. Dinner entrees like the... More

Our group of 7 was seated in a cozy corner at a round table. While a touch small, it was nice to be in a secluded spot. Everyone in our group had something different, and every dish was very good. The lentil soup was delicious, especially with a drop or two of fresh lemon. The lamb skewers, lamb chops, and... More

Another family favourite place to enjoy a meal. Food is fresh & nicely prepared. I love the appetizer sampling plate & the shish tawoo. I have introduced many friends to this restaurant over the years & many now call it their fave too.

Dined here monthly and now return when we visit Toronto. Can't beat there dinner offers for two in terms of quality, quantity or price. Kebabs are always tender, juicy and tasty. The accompaniments of tabbouleh, baba ghanouje, falafel , rice and salad assure you will get a lot to your liking and will leave on a full stomach. Your wallet... More

I am not much of an expert on Middle East cuisine but I know what I like and I liked this place a lot. 5 stars for me would be a meal I can feel in my system for more than a day, talk about for weeks and count the days when I'm able to go back. This place isn't... More

There are lots of "best things" about this restaurant. For one thing, it's only a couple of blocks away from home -- so convenient! For another, it's always crowded. There are numerous "regulars" for both dine-in and take-out, always a mix of couples and big family groups, and always a buzz of conversation. And the food is reliably tasty, well-cooked... More

This is a local joint that delivers great food and consistent quality. For four, under their special dinner and get over-stuffed with six appetizers, skewers of well prepared meats and salad. All for less than you would expect. Noisy, no-nonsense service. Have fun.

While the food was just about OK there are many better mid-eastern restaurants in the city. The main course was bland and the appetizers were quite ordinary. I doubt I will be returning.

One of the better Toronto Middle Eastern restaurants. It has a very accommodating kitchen which will reduce the salt, if asked. Worth the visit. ATB LIG

Staying in York-Crosstown

Neighborhood Profile
York-Crosstown
York-Crosstown is a sleepy area of Toronto dotted gorgeously with hills and farmland, stately homes and parks. An affluent district in parts, the stately houses at Baby Point along Jane Street are especially breathtaking, and make for a lovely wander on a clear day. Parks are bountiful in York-Crosstown, which makes it a vibrant area for outdoor play and sports, providing a break from the hustle of Toronto's busy, jam-packed city center. For a little spice after a walk in the park, the Little Jamaica area of York sports cheap, authentic food from the Caribbean. This area is restful and more orientated towards outdoor activity and the exploration of nature.
