“Windmill Wisdom & Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

These guys know there stuff....There is only one place to go in East London where they make almost perfect toasted sarmies. Do yourself a favour, order a bacon, egg & cheese toasted sandwich. The amount of bacon they give you is extremely generous and one of the main reasons I keep coming back.

Windmill have become an institution of consistency and great food that has excellent value. As long as they stay like this, I will ALWAYS be a customer.

“Memorable fast food Roadhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Going back 45 years when I first ate at the windmill and my toasted cheese samie was great. The Windmill has stood the test of time and my toasted cheese samie now is just as good as it was all those years. If you are looking for good priced, great tasting food which is served to you in your car, the Windmill is the place to go.

“Great late night entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

This roadhouse has been around for years. The takeaways are great. You can sit in your car after partying at numbers enjoy the crazy entertainment from all the other customers.

“Good fast food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Windmill food never disappoints. Favourites are the toasted sandwiches. Shredded chicken burgers are also good. Service is pretty much always fast and friendly.
