If you feel like a bit of Turkish street food, this place has a pretty good selection of pide and kebab, with salads and felafel for vegetarian option. It all looked very fresh and appetising. Also western style pizzas. Quick and no-fuss, and you'll have...More

Hands down best value for money burger in Newtown. The mayo and chili blend so perfectly and the pides are pretty good too!

Freshest and succulent chicken kebabs, Shish and rolls. Open till late, right at a street-corner, prompt service, and moderately priced. A range of dishes for the vegetarians as well.
