The restaurant has a warehouse setup. Pretty spacious and spread out. The staff is very friendly. Had the Chicken Shawarma Wrap and Falafel. Delicious!

Ambience is a bit lacking since renovations are ongoing but staff is friendly and the chicken shawarma was excellent. On my list for a return trip next time I'm in the area.
