“A secret gem”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

After 3 years of living in Penticton I tried this simple looking place on a whim. It is now the favourite of myself and all the friends I bring here. Unassuming and never busy Nassir's place will hopefully now receive the attention it deserves with this number 1 rating.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Don't be put off by appearances. It is easy to miss this little restaurant right across from the Convention Centre and it won't win any prizes for decor but forget about that. .It is right on the corner of Westminster and Power streets. We checked it out after reading reviews and found that it lived up to all the recommendations. It is a one man show and the owner is very pleasant and accommodating. We ordered the chicken dish and the beef dish and both were excellent. Spiced just right and so flavorful.Very reasonable prices and delicious. Can't wait to go back.

“Heaven on a plate!!!”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

After reading previous reviews we had to try this place out and we were NOT disappointed, it really is amazing. When we arrived there was no one else there so we were able to chat with the man preparing the food, I think he was the owner, what a lovely man and I have to say the service he provided was second to none - he told us to sit on the patio and enjoy the sun and he would bring the food to us. When the food arrived it was so tasty and as I sit here writing this review I can still smell and taste how good it was. The pita bread was hand made fresh right there in front of you, the humus was to die for and the chicken shawana was simply devine. My husband had both the beef and chicken wrap and he was blown away with the flavours exploding in his mouth. If you're in Penticton you have got to eat here and please do not be put off by first impressions - you won't taste better, Oh and get the hot sauce!!

“unreal food, staff & price!”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

you have to visit and meet Nassir! also, the food here is unreal... one of the best meals I've ever had FOR LESS THAN A MEAL AT SUBWAY. Delicious food and price aside, If you are interested in where your money goes and who you support - this is your place!

“Best kept secret in Penticton!”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Absolutely the best little known restaurant in Penticton. The owners are friendly and so accommodating! Just across from the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre. The food is incredibly wonderful and can be as spicy you prefer. Even the smell of the food as you walk in the door will make you hungry.
