  • I really didn't want to eat here based on the outer and inner appearance, but my friend who is studying Middle Eastern culture insisted this was a great place. Wow, was he wrong. The male cashier gave us a hard time, accused my friend who had eaten there before of trying to pass him counterfeit bills, demanded "real money" instead. We almost walked out right there, but my friend insisted the rude attitude was worth it. Food took a long time to make, hardly an express service. Waitress told us to order something or leave - we told her we were waiting for our order and she walked away without any apology. We wanted some fresh air and told the cashier we would wait outside, he told us if we did "I cannot guarantee your order" - that sounded shady so we decided to wait in the restaurant for it.

    $45 later we got two half-chickens, each with french fries and toasted bread. Wow - some big deal. Took it to my friend's place and ate it, so what? Overpriced food tasted just like any other roast chicken, but much drier and not much spice. What was the extra toasted bread for? - I needed something wet as a companion to this meal - not something dry.

  • Order: Half Chicken, French Fries, Bread

  • I went here a while back, I ordered the chicken shish kebob which turned out to be undercooked and still bloody. when i informed the manager she acted like she could care less, like I was disrupting her busy shift.. she didn't offer to take it off the bill or anything. really disapointing.

  • We had a group of a dozen family members including young ones who were hungry and eager to try out the food. We had book a table a few days ahead of time with appointments recorded in our books.

    However, when they got there (we were definitely on time), our reservation miraculously "disappeared". There were not reservations made under our names. How could that be??? This has never happened anywhere.

    Angry. Never go there again.

  • Two weeks ago I made a reservation for a party of 25 (teachers from a nearby school) at the new Me-Va-Me for our closing dinner. At that time I picked up a copy of a menu to discuss with the social committee of our school so that we could order appetizers for the staff to have prior to the meal. The reservation was for a Wednesday at 4:30 pm.
    Yesterday I went back to confirm the number of people attending and asked that $60 worth of appetizers that we had selected from the menu be placed on the tables at 4:45 pm. The manager who I was dealing with emphatically told me that he could not do as I requested. When I asked why, his answer was "This is only available from the take-out menu!". At this point he gave me the 'in-restaurant menu' and after checking it out, I found that the appetizers that we wanted to order were not on thios menu. I asked him that since we were such a large group, could he not accommodate us with the 'take-out appetizers'. His answer was a definite NO WAY. I then asked, what if I purchased them next door (their take out part) and returned to my group with them. His answer again was NO WAY. At this point I said, " Are you willing to lose this entire reservation because you will not accommodate us with this request?" His answer again was that he could not do anything. Well, I left and went across the street to Hannah's Schwarma at Bathurst and Rutherford where we have held our closing dinner several times and made a reservation. Even though it was onlt with 2 days notice, they were very glad to accommodate us. Perhaps the owner of Me-Va-Me should enlighten his 'manager' about CUSTOMER SERVICE and the fact that now he not only lost the income of our party, but many people will know of our disgraceful experience! We will never set foot into a restaurant like this.

  • WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE and MANAGER EVER!!!!
    Manager's name was NATALIE (Potiah i think her last name is)

    I just had the ABSOLUTE WORST EXPERIENCE at Me Va Me. Instead of a salmon burger, which I ordered because I'm a vegetarian, they brought me a veal burger. I knew it didn't look like any salmon burger I've ever had, so I asked the waitress. She confirmed 100% it's the salmon burger, so I ate it. Near the end I pulled the manager over (who was RUDE to begin with) and asked her and she said "that's the veal burger"!

    The manager - NATALIE (think her last name is Potiah) - DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. She said 'it must have been a mistake, so i took it off the bill' and she walked away. Then when I asked to speak with her, she IGNORED our table, YELLED at us, and didn't even care to discuss and hear my concern. NOR would she give me a piece of paper and pen so I could write down her name. She looked blankly at me like I was an idiot, felt her pockets and said 'I don't have one' and walked away.

  • Order: Salmon Burger

  • For mideastern food I usually go to Sofra Grill, which has NEVER let me down, but decided to try out the new Me Va Me on rutherford & bathurst and I wasn't very happy. The calamari came really fast and was pretty good considering I was starving! However, their chicken schnitzel was a let down.. It was very dry and tasteless. No one else at my table seemed to enjoy their entrees. The place itself is nice but I don't remember the old Me Va Me (on steeles) being like this new one, however, last time I went was probably 5 years ago. The service was probably the worst part, the waitress didn't check on us once after we placed our order. This is surprising because we had multiple food runners there so she didn't really do anything besides take our order... It also took a while for us to get her attention and to bring the bill. This is coming from someone who worked as a waitress and we didn't have these so called "food runners" where I worked. So for her to pay no attention to our table was weird for me.

    Another odd thing about this place. As we were waiting to be seated other people came in and I found that those that are evidently Russian or Russian/Israeli were treated better by the staff. I'm Russian too, but I don't look it at all. Maybe I was just having a trip but that's what it looked like to me!

    Anyways, moral of the story is to never come back here and go to the ole trusted Sofra Grill.. I've never experienced poor service or food there.

  • On a friends recommendation my sister and I had dinner here last night and LOVED IT!! It was the perfect evening to eat outside and while Bathurst and Steeles is a busy area , we absolutely enjoyed being outside. I have to admit, I would not have enjoyed being inside, a definite candidate for restaurant makeover!!
    We both found our meals delicious, filling and very healthy!! We are both watching what we eat and found the menu options to be very healthy and more than adequate size wise. For those who comment on portion sizes not being adequate, maybe your eating too much?!!
    My chicken kebob was delicious, tender and juicy. I've never had an Isreali salad before it was amazing I loved it!! My sister's had the Quinoa salad, not knowing what to expect. It was a cold salad, which suprised us both, but it was delicious and filling. We didn't order dessert, but they have Chessecake Factory desserts!!
    ! will definetly go back with my husband and for the godiva chocolate cheesecake one day!! The servers we had were friendly and I wish there was one closer to Mississauga.

  • Order: chicken kebob w/islreali salad, Quinoa Salad
