Lebanese restaurant. Small and unassuming, but generous (food to service). Prompt service. Fresh and delicious food. Clean. Very good value in all (paid 9,50$ for a large sandwich, tax included).

The sitting is limited to maybe 5 people, so if you go with a large family or a lot of strollers forget it.Otherwise the food was excelent specially the Shawarma.

My wife and I had lunch with our young kids. Much more of a "to go" place as there is an extremely limited amount of seating (and don't even think about bringing a stroller inside). The chicken shawarma was good, but I didn't think it was significantly better than other places. I was actually more impressed with the falafel, relative to other places' falafels. The owner was very friendly and welcoming.

Located mere minutes away from many downtown hotels, tourist spots & nightclubs; nimble feet only, as there is one huge step to climb before entering (delivery is available, though). The shawarma is also very cramped, with limited standing space, and seating for about a dozen patrons.

However, this is offset by delicious foodstuffs, pleasant & colourful to both the eyes and taste buds! I ordered the Chicken Shawarma Platter; the avocado garlic sauce is fresh & tangy, the red garlic sauce quite hot (take heed, ask for a half & half of the three sauces). The garlic potatoes are delicious, the shaved chicken is uniform texture, the rice cooked just right.

The attentive personalized service is also a plus. The young man behind the counter, very soft spoken & humble, saying "Thank you," when I hinted that I might return as a repeat customer.
The hours are also convenient, opening daily for lunch, until 2 AM (staying open as late as 4 AM on Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays).

Tastes good but very messy. The owner is extremely friendly. Try the rolled vine leaves. Worth the price.
