    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.

      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.

          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!

            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.

              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.
