    Tonight I had an awful experience here. Food was alright, but how about to find a vinyl glove in your salad???!!!

    When compared to back home in Riyadh. This place is extremely average. Their flafel aren't that special but their meat manoosha might be worth a try

    Some of the best shawarma I have had - ever. Knock yourself out with a sandwich or a platter. Busy, so service is spontaneous.

    Fresh bread, Manakeeh (Asian style pizza) and MIND BLOWING Chicken Shawarma!!! Although get your plate personalized (in terms of salad and/or rice).

    Try the Shish Tawouk - Marinated chicken breast grilled on a charcoal barbeque with a side dip of garlic sauce.This chicken is juicy and tasty! And the garlic dip is amazing too.

    Seems to be a bit of a theme here from the posts and it's a shame I have to agree - great food but lackluster service.

    This place deserves a higher rating. The food is delicious, best middle eastern food in Toronto. I recommend shish tawook plate or sandwich, or manakeesh (make sure its folded!) for a lighter choice.

    I'd suggest you skip this place. Found the ingredients low quality. Chicken and veggie pizza toppings tasted and looked like they came out of the freezer.

    The food is really great. I suggest a sampler platter and a mango/strawberry smoothy if you have the appetite. Be patient though because the service SUCKS.
