Great turkish food. We had a mixed pate for $10 which was enough for the two of us. Food was really tasty and the service is very good.

This is a good place for those looking for a nice halal restaurant to dine in and chill. A very cosy place at the corner with good customer service. Portion of food serves are good too. Or some might want to share if you're a small eater. Delicious middle eastern food!

We sat outside on the deck, it felt like sitting in a great backyard. The staff was very friendly and the food was Greece mixed with Middle East. Wine was very reasonable and quite good. If your looking for a quite,fun different feel place, this is it.

Even the bathroom is beautifully decorated (which says a lot!). Love the varied menu. We started with the Zaytoons Combo plate which is a choice of any five meza/salads. We chose the... More
