I like this place a lot. Living in the area means I have tried most places and this is certainly one of the best 'cafe' type places in Merchant City.
The staff - of which there are normally two, one of whom is the owner - are very polite and efficient.
The menu offers a good range of options and as discussed in previous reviews there are some nice Chines & Thai choices too. The food is always brought promptly and tastes fresh.
My only criticism is I went in for a takeaway one day and almost fell over when I was charged £1.50 for a can of Coke! Having said that, this is a pleasant., well run business so I wasn't mad for too long.
Certainly better than all the other informal food joints nearby. Definitely one to try.
