This place is only good if you have never been to an Arab restaurant. It fails in taste and price. The owners need to do a better job.

The food here is on point! The only reason I gave them 4 stars is because the service was a little all over the place. Super friendly and nice people, they just were a bit disconnected. They brought out the wrong thing and then took...More

Food is fantastic! Chicken shwarma, the dolma, spicy curry meatballs, rice and the salads (fattoush) are all really tasty! The portions are huge so order appropriately. Staff is always courteous and helpful. Great value too!

As far as I know, the Drake location does not have a buffet. The one at the corner of Westnedge/White does though, lunch and dinner buffet both. It's a bit pricey, but still good food.
