Comfortable venue and quick friendly service.
All the small tapas style dishes were excellent and made for an enjoyable experience as we tried many more items than would have been possible for a more typical meal.
Highly recommended.

We come here every few months as a family. The food is always good and the prices reasonable. We can always find something for our 10 year daughter to eat. The menus offers a nice variety - we have come here over a dozen times and are always able to find an interesting variety of items to order. Food is fresh and service is pleasant. Not fine dining but an enjoyable and predictable experience - we will keep coming back!

We have been here 5 times in the last 3 months and are reluctantly sharing this neighbourhood gem. We have lived in the area for a decade but somehow missed this one so are making up for lost time. The friendly owner is always here supervising to his high standards. The mezze are Eastern Mediterranean, heavily influenced by Middle East. Ten mezze for 2 big eaters plus dessert is more than enough. Delicious, $36 for the 10 apps. Half bottle of French house wine is $17. Great service, busy on a Friday night, reserve ahead unless you get there before 6 pm. Vegan gluten free options.

We went out with a group to celebrate a birthday. The service was friendly but a bit slow. We ordered many appetizers. The shish kabobs were tasty. The falafel was dense and had no spices. The sembousac were bland as well. So were the grape leaves, salads and pretty much everything else we ordered. The green beans were tasty. The chefs need to use salt badly and some mediterranean spices. The last time I went to this restaurant (five years ago), I had the same complaints. Middle Eastern food is supposed to be tasty - not bland. I won't go here again.

My friend and I decided to try this place, and I am glad we did. It is a busy little place, even on a Tuesday night. It could be that it was because they have specials on Monday and Tuesday nights.

We ordered 10 tapas dishes, 5 each. We could have managed with just 4 each. I think we would have enjoyed having seconds of the skewers of lamb and of shrimps. I might skip the "cigar" breaded chicken liver tapas, but that might just be my taste. They serve a basket of two types of pita bread. Save some to have with some of the tapas. The tapanade was nice, but a touch spicy for our taste.

We had a bottle of Orvieto Classico, which went nicely with most of the dishes, and we finished it with a serving of baklava each. It was nice and nutty, and not too syrupy and sweet.

Recommended, and we would go again.
