Great falafel

Very good falafel, great value for money and the service is quick. The falafel wrap for £2.50 is the perfect lunch.

This is a very friendly, easy going cafe. Food is plentiful, as would be expected from any authentic MIddle Eastern eatery, and I enjoyed the mint tea. The food, though plentiful, was pretty average, the tabbouleh too bitter and fibrous. I would eat here again but to be honest far better prepared, and tastier fare from this region can be... More

Ok lets clear things up, theres restaurants and there are eateries that serve some of the best food in manchester and this is the latter. There is no pretence here they serve a selection of arabic foods that use much of the same salad items with either falafel, chicken shawarma or lamb. A chicken shawarma meal at £4.50 is superb...

I enjoyed a chicken shawarma meal - for only £4.50 I had a pile of chicken, chips, humus, roti, and tons of salad, as well as a lovely pot of mint tea.

We visited this place with the hope of having nice food after reading misleading comments in here. We left disappointed by the food and disgusted by the hygiene level of the restaurant. Just to give you an idea, the dirty toilet had no toilet paper and soap. We now fear for our health as others reported feeling ill for some... More

So so tasty, the falafels were fresh, the salad, hummus, pickles and bread that came with them were so tasty. We... More

Myself and a colleague both became incredibly ill for 5 days after eating here. As both our meals were vegan I fear cross contamination with meat and/or dairy products.
