Superb meal, had a lamb shish and my friend a mixed shish. Both juicy and delicious, up there with the best I’ve had. A must for every visit I will make to Canterbury from now on.

Great grilled food, salads and service. A narrow front dining room which opens up to a warm and comfortable rear enclosed and roofed garden with a large log burning stove.

Lured by the good reviews, we decided to try this restaurant during our last stay in Canterbury. Well... At the end of the meal, we were very disappointed. We ordered différents starters, hot and cold, in a way to sample as much flavours as possible,...More

Despite being a large group the service was very smooth. We enjoyed pre-selected starters and main course platers. The pita bread was very flavoursome and I enjoyed it just as much with the dips as on its own. The starters included falafel, meat balls, squid,...More
