“Potentially good but terrible service, mediocre food”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

I loved the menu at this restaurant, and there were a lot of budget-friendly options for trying small bits of different foods, but the service and food was pretty poor. When we got there (8pm-ish), there were plenty of empty tables outside, but none that were cleared. The bread they brought and some of the appetizers were severely lacking salt.

My biggest complaint was that I ordered a simple lamb sandwich and they didn't bring it to me until my boyfriend was completely finished with his meal. Beyond that, the lamb in my sandwich was really tough with little flavor.

We also had to ask 4 different servers for a to-go box until one finally arrived.

That being said, the restaurant has great aesthetics, a cute outdoor eating area, and the potential to be a great restaurant if they get their service in order.

“Great food, great value”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We were staying at a suite hotel just down the street and noticed this place was always busy. We ended up eating there mutliple times, once in the restaurant and the rest take-out. The place is spotless, and the food fresh and tasty - including hot from the oven pita bread. We kept repeating the mixed grill with a side of eggplant spread - plenty of food for two.

“Best middle eastern resto @ Dundas Square”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

This is a nice joint at one of the most happening place in toronto - Dundas Square. This place is famous for its middle eastern cuisine. Hummus with pita bread is must try. Also turkish sweet named baklawa was good. Wide range of choices to select from the menu. Ambient is average not so good.

“First time...”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This was our first time ..It was different. They also server burger and fries. I looked at the menu and was lost. Luckily we meet friends there to enjoy the evening meal. It was different..we liked some of it, and some we didn't. It was a nice place and the people that worked there are very nice!
