Trapped in the shadow of Boston Pizza on the By-pass just west of Fraser Hwy, it was worth finding and parking is easy. The menu is pretty typical middle eastern and prices are very good.
This quarter chicken - dark meat plate was $9.49 and came with basmati rice, 2 excellent salads including Fatoush, and a couple of dips, namely Houmus and the amazing Toum (garlic sauce to surpass all garlic sauce on the planet). The chicken is available grilled or fried. I was curious about their fried chicken but Marie got all health conscious on me and so we had the grilled. It was not a mistake as the chicken was tender and slightly salty and very tasty!
We also tried the Roasted Lamb Shank plate which was also a bargain at $13.99. This was the same plate but with a wonderful tender fall of the bone lamb shank. Of course, there was pita and each plate also came with a soft drink!
There is much more to this menu including skewers and wraps and so on. We ordered a Lamb Cube wrap to go which was lovely and tender with sauce and a pickle and lettuce etc. It was not the most photogenic (not meant to be unwrapped once it is wrapped) so after debating, I chose not to include my picture. I would definitely order it again though.
There are a few tables and chairs including a higher communal table and you can watch the game (I expect that the Superbowl was on later). The owner (and our cook and server this day) was all business when we arrived but warmed up as we asked him about his restaurant.
For value and wonderful food, we are giving this a 4 out of 5.
