This is a wonderful family-run business, and everything is 'Home-made' and quite delicious!! For the Vegans & Vegetarians the Falafel Wrap is sooo good, I find it hard not to order 2!!! and Sometimes I do!! Check them out and sample their Menu, quite delicious...More

Thanks so much for taking the time out to review! I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the lamb platter. Did you have a takeout order or did you dine in? Takeout platters would have slightly less salad than the eat in- box restrictions....More
