We had lunch here on the second day of our visit to Vancouver. It was located, along with other ethnic restaurants, just around the corner from our hotel. Since neither my wife nor I had ever tried Iraqi food before, we gave it a try....More

First time ever writing a review but this place deliberately ripped me off and I was completely shocked as this has never happened to me in Vancouver before. I ordered a 7.50$ wrap and a drink, gave them a 20$ bill and they hand me...More

The Souvlaki was pretty tasty and the portion was enough for a starving person. The chicken was cooked enough; not under or over cooked. I liked the environment of the restaurant too. My wife's Felafel plate was also good and fresh. We will definitely go...More

we were hungry - only reason we tried to eat the wrap - meat was hard and dry - veggies soggy - taste was not good, we had tummy aches after it.

I got the 7$ wrap and for some reason ended up paying 10$! Then the tip...it was way too pricey. It was a small tiny thing with no juicy anything going for it. I have had good wraps and this one was a loser. The...More

Very tasty food, served fast and friendly. The chicken shawerma is really good. The meat is tender, well seasoned, and they give you a generous portion on their wraps. The pita is filled with meat and fresh veggies, along with a flavourful blend of sauces...More

I've often walked by this place on Denman, and finally gave it a try at 1:30 am since everything else was pretty much closed in the West end. I orderd the lamb shawarma, which was unfortunately microwaved and was tough and dry. The sauce was...More

On our first evening in Vancouver we decided to try a local Mid-Eastern shop that had quite a 'line out the door.' What a disappointment. I'm not sure if they were just at the end of the carving piece or if there was another reason,...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
