“Great wraps you just need to try”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Been eating at this place for years now and intend to do so and long as I am around. The exterior is far from eye-catching, but delve inside and you will be generously rewarded. Tasty grilled chicken and lamb wraps, tasty falafel, friendly staff, reasonable prices (including student discounts) - if it's quick and tasty you're after, you can't go wrong with Palmyra.

“Exquisite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Just had the most exquisite falafel wrap. Really delicious. The whole restaurant is filled with beautiful aromas and the staff are helpful, friendly and polite. I shall be back.

“Really good falafels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

We just popped in on passing and had a dish where falafels were served within a wrap. This might seem really simple but with the sauces that were added, the flavour was amazing - cheap but well flavoured food! The only drawback might be the cold breeze coming in through the front door when it opens, but I can't fault the service or food.

“Average, expected more after reading reviews...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Was looking forward to some good food, but would not bother to go again. Food was nice enough, but much better in similar settings for much less money!

“Simple grub, tasty and cheap.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

I recommend the Hummus Sharwarma (served in a plate) and the Hot and Spicy Pizza. friendly staff accept student discount on already cheap food which is a huge plus.

Pros: Nice food, plenty of seating space, cheap.

Cons: avoid sitting at either the front near the door (drafts) or the very back near the toilets (off putting aromas)
