The food was unacceptable. The shawarma (doner) was very dry. I should have return the plate. I’ve order roasted vegetables and they weren’t roasted. They were almost raw. I don’t recommend the restaurant. I’m not going again.

Went here recently with a friend. Both dishes were presented well and tasty. Thought the price point was a little high, but between the downtown location and the decor of the restaurant, it was understandable. I would return.
