This was legit. The happy staff was fantastic. The food was amazing and extremely enjoyed by our family who came from many corners of the continent. Definitely a place to come again.

Love this place. Honestly, best falafel I have ever had and they do it every time. Really good value. I will return again. Service is always good, lovely people serving at the counter, very much into the food. All homemade. I highly recommend this place.

The wrap was OK but not outstanding, my husband's beef wrap was a bit dry. It suited us because we wanted a quick inexpensive lunch

After a disappointing experience at another Lebanese/Mediterranean at Broadway and Alma, I was reluctant to try this restaurant. But it was a totally different experience. The falafel for the wrap I ordered was freshly cooked, not re-heated in the microwave. Flavorful sauces were generously applied...More

I've only been to this particular location a couple of times, but have been to the one in Kitsilano more than I can remember (especially since it's right next to a bar...). They offer really fantastic, filling middle eastern shawarma at a great price. The...More

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative
neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture
and poetry readings, its days of flower children and
buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving
their mark on the number of organic restaurants and
fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of
