    I have been twice, and really enjoyed both visits.

    I really like the lamb pizza, and other appetizers with their pickled-in-house vegetables. Falafel shrimp are tasty.

    I had the lamb kefta main. It's served in a metal pan, with a roof of baked bread. There are three very large kefta under the bread, simmering in a delicious mixture of eggplant, tomato, onions, and Moroccan spices. Really tasty. And it's unique. They are doing something that no one else in town does: fancy, creative, Middle-Eastern inspired cuisine.

    The service could not be friendlier.

      I was there for a 'group' dinner. Food was competent, but the kitchen had difficulties getting food out for the group - so it was a LONG evening.

      Prices seemed fair, but I'd need to try on a 'regular' night before I can recommend.

        Just got an email from Dining Date Night about this restaurant. They are adding it to their list of participating restaurants. Basically, if you pay $10, you can get 30% off at the restaurant. They have some other great participating restaurants as well: https://www.diningdatenight.com/

        Seems like a good deal if you intend on trying it out!

            Was there earlier this year and absolutely loved it. Call me crazy but they have incredibly good gnocchi, definitely top 3 gnocchi in Toronto in my books.

            And the service is very good (but might be a matter of taste). The waiter I had was a very polite mild-mannered gentleman, very nice guy.

              I was at a function catered by them last week - food was really good, especially the small lamb burgers which were juicy and perfectly cooked. Very impressive quality of food.
