Our Canadian companion had high praise for this restaurant but we were still not sure. Had quite some choices for vegetarians, picked one from sandwiches. The serving was big enough for dinner and it was delicious. All of us ate more than we could. Best thing was Baklava which was very near to Indian gujiya, simply loved it, will definitely... More

Had take-out tonight. Fast and polite phone call & pick-up service. Food was pretty good. Great mixture of sides with entree that are very flavourful. If you're reading this Arabesque cooks please make note: the chicken had nice charred flavour around the edges, but was very bland and overcooked. This can be rectified by marinating and brinning simultaneously, overnight. I've... More
