I've had many different menu items here (potatoes are delicious!) but my favourite is the falafel pita. It's very reasonably priced too at just over $6 including tax. A different place charges over $9 for theirs and it's mostly pita and you can barely taste the falafel. Here it's a different story- the falafels are large and delicious, and there... More

I love this little place. The friendliness of the staff is incredible. The food is great and the pricing good. They always have a menu du jour thats a bit cheaper but still tasty and fresh.

Ordered chicken swarma, started to eat and realized there was no chicken. Normally I would think it was a mistake but not so sure this time. The man acted surprised and gave me a new one.

We stopped here for lunch while shopping. The owner greeted us and guaranteed our satisfaction or our money would be refunded. The shawarma plate absolutely exceeded our expectations and was far better than any of the typical fast food places in the food court! The food was fresh, fast and delicious! The portions were enormous and were a great value... More

I had their Chicken shwarma plate and Falafels. I was not impressed as the food was not good. Tabouleh texture was not good at all as the parsley was not cleaned well. Hummus was not good and had no flavour. The chicken had fat pieces in it as it was not cleaned well. The Falafels tasted like oil with no... More

I have stopped in while shopping to have quite a large meal at a very reasonable price. Under ten dollars and you get a selection of chicken kebabs or shwarma (not sure how it is spelled) and any salad or combo or salad you like...chick peas, garden,beets,quinoa,ceasar etc. I usually ask for a mix and they always comply. The hummus... More

This place is really good and I am picky with my middle eastern food. He combines all the right flavors for some really tasty food. The kefta tastes so much better than any I have tasted before! It is inside the mall in case you can't find it! (Halal with Certificate)

They offer a lunch special with a drink and a shawarma for $6.99. Very tasty lunch. Many topping choices for your wrap, all look and taste fresh. The sandwich ends up being a very filling and satisfying lunch.
