been the felafel a few times but always think it's not as good as jaffa. most recently, went yesterday for dinner and had chicken shwarma with chips (there was humous and tabouleh on the side as well as salad + bread). also had a portion of felafels. the food was ok - the meat and felafels were lukewarm and nothing spectacular. the felafels were very green inside too which was a bit odd!! have been on previous occasions with large groups and it is nice to be able to order different things like the mezze and spicy potatoes to share. i have also had the cooked lamb dish with rice before which was tasty. yesterday's visit was disappointing. the food is good value though and you do get alot for your money and the people are nice.

The food was fresh, tasty and healthy and I couldn't believe the size of the portions. At £2.50 for falafel, £2.50 for a gorgeous mixed salad and £3 for a Fatyer (like a pizza) I thought I would have enough for a modest meal, but there was so much food that I had to have half of it packed to take with me. The layout of the restaurant is basic, more like a diner, but the service is very friendly and the place has tremendous atmosphere. Possibly the most pleasantly surprised I've ever been by a restaurant in the UK.

I love this place, its just chilled, nothing great, just in and out good food. Arabic food is class, the staff are nice but their is a language barrier. Great snack food, everyone should try this food.

This is not a vegetarian place but as a vegetarian it meets my needs perfectly with fresh tasty falafel wrapped in a nan with humous and a choice of salads and chilli sauce.mmmmm..
they also do middle eastern salads and dishes.service is the best in manchester-the guys working there are always happy and smiling.also the food is ridiculously cheap....The arabic coffee is incredible.also there is no charge for the fresh breads that come with your food.This place deserves to be a real hit because the food and service is top notch.
