Little gem

Visited here quite late in the evening after a few drinks. It looks like a takeaway but don't be fooled, there is an amazing buzzy restaurant out back. The staff were friendly and the food was wonderful. Not a place for romantic couples but well worth a visit. Would definitely go back.

If you looking for a quick takeaway and value for money.. Try here. The kebabs here are good, tasty and not the usual rubbish you get from most places. This place has been running years on the parade in Watford and there is a reason for that. Good value for money.

OK - firstly, it's a kebab shop with adjunct table service area so don't expect silver service, and in terms of kebab shop table service areas there are far far worse. The food - very good indeed, decent portions, fresh salad - I didn't even reach for the chili sauce so tasty was my dish. Good selection of wines -... More

I haven't gone in this place for two years . Recent visit confirmed why. Awful food , chewy dry chicken. Elastic kebab and hard dry bread. Salad was fresh however and customer service ain't too bad either. However the food highly rubbish.
