Windmill Resto & Bar (Middle Eastern?)

I was walking up Bay St. the other day and did a double-take when I saw a chalk board outside an unassuming restaurant listing 'Sayadiyeh' as a daily special - which was unexpected to say the least (Sayadiyeh is an arabic dish of baked rice and fish - somewhat akin to a biryani, but different spicing of course). A quick inspection of the menu revealed a mostly 'Mediterranean' slant (pasta etc, pretty generic stuff), but also a few fairly obscure and labour intensive arabic/middle eastern dishes, as opposed to the usual fast food type kebabs that seem to be the staple of middle eastern food establishments in the GTA.

I was only able to find a few suspiciously glowing Google reviews online - anyone actually been to this place and can comment on the food? It's at 1033 Bay, a few blocks south of Bloor. There's a sizable patio out front that was packed with the after-work happy hour crowd.
