Plenty to choose from for the vegetarians and well the meat eaters are spoilt for choice with their platters! Only reason this it misses out on the 5 star is because of the lack of attention and... read more

The location is very accessible as it is a couple minutes from Edmonton station and a short drive off the A406 coming off at Edmonton. The car park space is very small and limited but if you arrive to the restaurant after 19:00 there... More

Incredibly unfriendly staff. Seemed like because I was in my work uniform, they didn't want me there. Also, really expensive for what it is. I was disappointed because I had been looking forward to going there.

I have been to Oba, Gunaydin, Capital, Azizye, Wood Oven etc etc. Kervan still hails as #1 for me because their lamb is the most melt in your mouth, whether it's their supplier or chefs, I don't care, no one does it...

The service does change a little according to the level of work but that it completely understandable as they are human too. The meat is well marinated and cooked, the special will easily feed 5 and the prices are... More
