“Fun time, Authentic delicious food, music, belly dancer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We really enjoyed our visit here on a Friday night. The belly dancer and music really made the experience, but the food was as good and as plentiful as any buffet dining experience we have ever enjoyed. Very nice family owned and run business.

Ah the food, from the prime rib and seafood selection to the very traditional Middle Eastern Lamb and meats, was delectable. Go hungry, and leave your diet at the door. While there are ample healthy selections, you won't want to pass on the meats, deserts, olives, and sauces.

For what you get, this is truly a dining bargain.

“Piece of Middle East in Forest Hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Excellent restaurant, great value
Get the meal for 4, it will do for up to 6 and is only $70
The taste of the food was outstanding. Great quality, cheerful service
But go with a fun group, not for an intimate dinner

“A very nice night spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

This place is nice at night due to the belly dancer. Food is open buffet style and taste is good. The owner is taking care of restaurant and guests, you see walking and serving people. You should book a table if during weekends or you are large group. The place is always full. Prices are really good compared to all you can eat. Lunch will be less in price but not dancing. Live Music is really sooo nice. It's an Egyptian style restaurant in food and music. Try it and you won't regret it. Parking is free in a designated lot behind the restaurant.
In brief a dining experience that you won't regret at all.

“Just go there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I had a great time with friends here. The buffet was great. Crunchy falafel, lots of beautifully prepared dips, kebab, fish, great desserts ( interesting and nutty bread pudding), great middle eastern salads. I was so impressed with the price (19.99 for Thursday dinner buffet), atmosphere (scarves on ceiling, belly dancer) and service. A great meal and experience. Drooling just thinking about it. :)

“Try the one on Leslie Street”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

They have good takeout and a buffet that is very large.
Food is fresh and is tasty. The price is fair.

I have had issues with the Eglinton Street location and would travel north for a better experience.
