I've eaten in on a couple of occasions but I mostly get a takeaway. The food is genuinely delicious. Every time I have been in whether to eat or collect a takeaway it is always packed. Service is very speedy and if you are after a quick and tasty bite, you can easily be in and out of there in... More

First time I have been in here, though it always looked nice when I came past. My boyfriend booked a table which I would recommend as it was really busy even on a Thursday night. You can bring your own wine, corkage was £1 each. As with most restaurants of the same type we started off with free pitta bread... More

This is such a lovely place, staff are so friendly and always welcome you when you arrive I go to this place once a week sometimes that's how much I loved it! Chicken is so nice & they give free tzasouki (yoghurt & cucumber dip) with naan bread which is lovely.

Its quite simple, they are for some reason very busy during lunch time every single day. They are also very busy... More

Ate there for a quick bite after work on a Friday night with a work colleague. Be there before 7 or be prepared to queue. Likely to be sat on a table with others (which doesn't bother me in this style of restaurant). Calamari to start was the frozen norm. Not good not bad, just fine. Mixed kebab main.... Fantastic...
