The Hummus had little taste to it and could have just come out of a packet. They went nest door for my ice cream. We found the food basic and I would avoid it. Staff were friendly.

I really recommend to avoid this place. The kebab they served hasn't got any taste. No taste at all. And it is very expensive.

In short: we could forgive the lack of quantity if we had quality. It's a pity to serve middle eastern food that is so tasteless. Very bad value for price experience.

Our small group were delighted with the huge selection of salad and vegetable plates plus pita bread, felafel, humus, tahini and nameless other dishes with stuff to be scooped up with bread! It's a cellar and has decent toilets!

I visited this restaurant twice, the first time for lunch with a group I was travelling with, the second as I was wandering the streets alone a week later. Both experiences were good. The food was good, plenty of it and very good service. A...More
