We found this restaurant near our hotel in downtown Calgary while looking for a quick late afternoon snack. We shared a falafel plate. The food was tasty and seemed fresh. The restaurant was clean and the price was very reasonable. If you like middle eastern food, this is a good choice

These guys are a bit far from my office so I don't get over often but when I do, it is great. Super staff and fresh ingredients always. The shawarma is very good. I usually get a complementary baklava which is nice as well. Around $9 and I am always very full, great place.

Tight spot, does not have much character. Limited menu, like most falafel Joints in town. I would not make a special trip to come here.

It looks a little dicey from the outside but inside they're serving up really good, fresh falafels. I also bought the Tabouleh side salad that was terrific.

Just LOVE the food here - especially the falafel. This nutty thing wants me to say more but surely this sums it up?
