Love this place, this middleeastern version of a taco is lovely. the only thing is that they do not open for lunch, is only available at night time. They have nice salsas, my favourite is the chipotle. Would Recommend to everyone!

We lucked out with a waiter who spoke english. I tried to see what others ordered, something I always do, but ended up winging it. I had to order a second entree since the first wasn't all that big, but it was tasty. We did come here the night before and thought it was closed. The sign is at the... More

What a lovely little discovery, this restaurant. The Shawarma was absolutely delicious (the Shawarmita is a smaller version of the Shawarma). The Shawarma is served with the standard meat in the pita with a bed of lettuce and tomatos and a selection of various sauces, including a very tasty and creamy garlic Tarator sauce and hot sauce. I arrived at... More

I admit to being a little bit of a foodie and to being quite fussy about what I eat, so I was doubtful about this place despite hearing good things. I am very glad I decided to try it! The Arabe meat tasted grilled rather than fried, the taco tortilla was very fresh and tender, the schawarmas were wonderful and... More

This restaurant is a little hidden and not much to look at but I was pleasantly surprised with their tacos, ordered a couple rounds of their signature Harbanos tacos which were quite good and their raw tomato sauce gave it a very fresh and acid note that made all the difference. Service is OK, cleanliness is OK, prices are reasonable.

Over the years this little group is growing up. The important here is the flavour and the price... great combination! Talking about the service... shame! If you hire new waitress, at least you must train them... and some old ones are absolutely lazes. And of course, big shame that you kitchen looks so messy.

Never eat something like this before, was delicious. The taste of the taco arabe was very different, but remind me of shawarma.
