We have been here 5 times in the last 3 months and are reluctantly sharing this neighbourhood gem. We have lived in the area for a decade but somehow missed this one so are making up for lost time. The friendly owner is always here supervising to his high standards. The mezze are Eastern Mediterranean, heavily influenced by Middle East.... More

We went out with a group to celebrate a birthday. The service was friendly but a bit slow. We ordered many appetizers. The shish kabobs were tasty. The falafel was dense and had no spices. The sembousac were bland as well. So were the grape leaves, salads and pretty much everything else we ordered. The green beans were tasty. The... More

My friend and I decided to try this place, and I am glad we did. It is a busy little place, even on a Tuesday night. It could be that it was because they have specials on Monday and Tuesday nights. We ordered 10 tapas dishes, 5 each. We could have managed with just 4 each. I think we would... More

This is our favourite tapas place. In an out of the way residential neighbourhood they have delicious middle eastern food and we have enjoyed many family occasions for reasonable price. Lots of variety and great for vegetarians.

We had dinner here last night with friends and it was a nice evening out. We ordered 20 small plates between us. We especially liked the fried eggplant and the kofta meatballs though everything was pretty good. We had enough to eat but we could have eaten more! Would go back based on value alone. Very inexpensive. Waitress was very... More

While visiting Toronto we decided to try this place out. We Looked at the menu on-line before we went and we were intrigued. We followed the menu suggestion... 15 Selections for 3 Guest. We wrote the 15 menu items were wanted, it did not take us long to decide as there was something something for everyone. One of us was... More

I happened upon this restaurant because the one I was to meet some friends at a few doors over was closed. A happy stumble for sure!! The food came quickly and it was delicious! My favourite was the creamed cauliflower with caraway seeds - wow, what a treat! And the hummus, probably one of the best in the city! Lots... More

Tasty food, really affordable and definitely deserved of a repeat visit. Went there amongst a group of 4, ordered the recommended 4 portions per person and there was more than enough for all of us. Price wise came to about c$16 each.

I keep coming back. Sometimes the food lacks consistency, but I love all the small dishes. I wish there were more restaurants based on this concept.

Staying in York-Crosstown

Neighborhood Profile
York-Crosstown is a sleepy area of Toronto dotted gorgeously with hills and farmland, stately homes and parks. An affluent district in parts, the stately houses at Baby Point along Jane Street are especially breathtaking, and make for a lovely wander on a clear day. Parks are bountiful in York-Crosstown, which makes it a vibrant area for outdoor play and sports, providing a break from the hustle of Toronto's busy, jam-packed city center. For a little spice after a walk in the park, the Little Jamaica area of York sports cheap, authentic food from the Caribbean. This area is restful and more orientated towards outdoor activity and the exploration of nature.
