Sure, if you like a good, filling meal, you'd be disappointed with this place. This place is for people who like to chew and taste their food. This is the place to try new things--several new things at once! It's a bit pricey but if you think about all the work involved and the cost of ingredients in their dishes, it makes perfect sense. They update their menu often which of course is both great and disappointing. I miss their tofu bacon with butternut squash! But their current tofu dimsum, the smoked tofu & shiitake mushroom turnip cake is also good!
Cocktails? I've only tried the snapdragon. Horseradish vodka and butter ripple schnapps? Brilliant.
I always liked how they'd check our coats so when they didn't the last time I went, I was a little disappointed especially since I had brought a new person with me and had mentioned this little perk.
Never mind the other reviews, I'm going to keep coming back here.

I haven't tried too many different items here because I find it hard to stray from the first thing I've ever tried here: the chicken shawarma. You get a lot of meat for the price! It's nothing fancy but has never disappointed me. I've tried their Falafully Good Special which was quite good, but for me the texture of the falafels did not combine that well with the lamb and chicken. The platters are a good deal, and I often go for the Shawarma Plate if I feel the need for variety. The tabbouleh is disappointing though: I've only ever made this myself once before and it was definitely better than what this place serves.
Service? Friendly and quick!
Would I recommend this place? I always do. When I don't feel like cooking at home, I come here.
