We took our 3 kids (8,9,10 in age) to lunch here today for their 1st time, and I think they have found their new favourite restaurant in Saint John. There was a great selection of items on the Kids Menu, which was nice to see....Our kids chose (without prompting) a couple of the Chicken Shawarma and a Beef Kofta Kebab, and some juice. Us parents ordered up a Falafel Burger and Chicken Shawarma with Tabouli Salad. The kids each received a large (in our opinion) glass of juice, a great portion of healthy, delicious (according to them) food, and then got served up a really cool build-your-own ice cream sundae, and a cool little toy each as a takeaway. They were thoroughly impressed, as were we by the offering and the value received. Our meals were great as well, complete with a Turkish coffee that was spot on. Great meal selections, friendly service, tasty healthy food for the whole family, and great value. Definitely give this restaurant consideration the next time you're seeking a meal when out with the kids. We know we'll certainly be back!More

I'm amazed with the how good the food is on this restaurant! I first visited it with a friend after work. I ordered lamb chops with yellow rice and salad. I ordered double the rice and salad because they served plenty of meat. I also...ordered Egyptian tea. It was all served in decorative plates and cups. The food was awesome. After I ate I ordered the same to go to have it the next day again. Two days later I visited again with my wife. She also loved the food thereMore

Great food, nice experience. On the pricier side of my scale for food but I liked it and will return.

We happened to try this restaurant on Jan. 17 for supper. We told our waitress we were on a tight schedule due to plans at 8pm. She checked with the chef and they said they were busy but could accommodate us. The food was awesome!...We had the Key of Life and Chicken Shawarma. It was fresh, hot and delicious. Our server was so nice. We will definitely be back!More

Our first time here. I went with the Tandoori Chicken Kebob and Constant Companion chose the Shrimp Kebob. We both had Greek potatoes on the side. Wonderful! The check was sooo tender! We very much enjoyed the Egyptian music and were relieved that there was...no TV in sight.More

As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a huge smile. We commented that the menu was different. But Mohammed was quick to tell us the new changes. I visit from Alberta and ALWAYS come here! I’m vegan and they have tons of...vegan options. Sadly one of my favourites have been removed, but he was quick to give us lots of information. We had a lot of our old favourites. Everything is made to perfection. It’s a great restaurant, with great staff, and amazing food! See you soon.....More
