Hard to find, but well worth the search to discover this amazing gem. There's 12 seats so plan a wait or grab some takeout - whatever it takes to get some of this grub. Caribbean / West Indies food like no other place in town...More

Best roti around, hands down. Only reason I am writing a review is I was searching for the phone number to pre-order a pickup and I felt this was a good opportunity to provide positive feedback for a restaurant that really deserves it!

What an absolute great place for a bite. Famena's is a small restaurant, nestled in one of the most obscure little places, a tiny corkscrew parkade, with a circular half table counter at the bottom, surrounded by mirrors. The place used to be an old...More
