Cannot fault the falafels and chicken, avocado, salad, toasted wrap - the best I've eaten ... ever. Also enjoyed baclava and a cup of tea to round off. However the interior could do with a bit of updating. The staff were friendly and efficient during a very busy lunch service, mostly takeaways for hungry Students. Will definately go back.

What a bloody banger!

Legend chef, opened up just for us. Was dubious looking at the menu but once the food came out we were blown away. The crispiest wings! Peanut sauce was raw sauce! Shabba!

Background ting - Charlie sloth playing those sweet tunes.

Falafel was on fiyahhh. Reviews no liar.
Lidl wine and beers less than a tennah.
No corkage charge, bigger than Nigel, no Farage!
South Sudan, servings are large!
Cheeeeeeeseee
Bad and Boujee

Update you once we get mains...

Had a great evening here with a pal. Delicious food (white fish in spicy sauce and lamb meatballs) and super-friendly service, all at very reasonable price. Definitely going back!

My personal recommendation would be the Africa wrap with extra aubergine! Absolutely delicious. The Sudanese coffee is delicious too.

Been here on numerous occasions for a wrap for lunch. The falafel wraps are so great. They are simply awesome. My go to place for flavour, freshness and spice. Great value aswell, 4.50 - 5.00, epic!
