My husband and I were going to the Imperial theatre. We parked our car right in front of this restaurant. We went in and we're greeted and seated quickly. The food was very good. It was served hot and was very tasty. Service was great and we were in and out in plenty of time for our show. My husband... More

Middle Eastern food is sometimes easy to find, but is rarely better than average. One can find the typical Middle Eastern dishes such as shish-ka-bobs at many restaurants. My husband, who is a foodie, is selective when picking such places. He chose this place because of some of the unique desserts and drinks they offer. It turned out to be... More

We recently enjoyed a very nice dinner -- the first visit for eight of us -- at this Mediterranean-cuisine restaurant. All the meals were generous in size, offered a nice variety of flavours, fresh ingredients and lovely presentation. The rice portions were even served in the shape of a pyramid! Staff was very pleasant and attentive, answering questions and offering... More

We had heard good things about the Resturant, so decieded to try it. We ordered take out. We both enjoyed our meals. They were ready for pick up when they said it would be. The waiter was really nice and friendly. Very interesting decor in the resturant. Will go back again.

Very fresh and tasty food! An array of flavours from both as well. I believe the owners were running the show during our visit - fabulous that their dedication shines through! Absolutely returning:)

Visted for Friday buffet. It was tasty but I thought the buffet could have had more options. It was abit pricey too. I may give it another chance for a evening dinner.

I had been wanting to try this place for a while and was expecting to really enjoy it. My lunch was good but nothing overly memorable. It was certainly worth a visit, but with all the other choices up-town, I'll probably try someplace new the next time.

We went in on a Thursday night and only one other table was in use, out of 20. I am not sure why. Place is more than fine. Nice artwork and statues all around. There is an area in the middle where they sell various Egyptian curios which was both a little odd but interesting if not tempting. Service was... More

The food wasn't that great, meat "grilled Kofta" was not fresh. The restaurant decoration is wonderful however, I found the price was expensive for the quality of the food.
