Dined her on a Sunday afternoon with family. Took advantage of the great deal which includes any starter and main course for £10 (albeit a slightly smaller portion) or £13 for full portion. As they were 4 of us we went for the Hot & Cold Mixed Meze's which included items such as Haloumi Cheese, Cheesey Peppers, Falafel, Cheese Rolls,... More

The food is absolutely delicious - nice atmosphere ... would have given it 5 stars and it's not anything they can change really, but if just two of you eating, you get sat in front of the door and every time the door opened it was freezing - food worth it though, so will wrap up warmer next time

Lovely decor shame about the service... a major disconnect .Staff consist of a strange rabble of barely coherent mildly unfriendly and some permanently hungover juveniles with personality disorders. Food is nice and authentic but like with any restaurant if the service is substandard what's the point of eating there when you feel like an unwanted house guest the very essence... More

Ordered lamb chops - good portion size, marinated and cooked to perfection. The meat was so juicy and tender. The bulgur was full of flavours too. Staffs were very friendly and attentive. Great food with excellent service.
