This would be an ideal restaurant to bring kids since the food comes really quick. I loved the beef moussaka. Positions are generous and the wait staff is very nice. We will go back.

We walked in off the street for lunch, and shared prawns and falafel. The prawns were juicy, cooked just right, with a marinade that enhanced the flavour. The falafel were outstanding, with plenty of parsely or coriander leaves that made them moist: my wife said that for the first time she understood falafel. The decor is not swept up, and... More

I like eating here as there's good vegetarian options and the meals are always tasty. The staff kept checking on us a too much. But over all great meals and fair priced

A very enjoyable meal. I stopped here because it was busy! Always a good sign. I opted for the dish of the week, sausage griller, served with polenta, aubergines, vine tomatoes. Service was prompt, the meal was extremely tasty and of a good size.

Just grabbed a quick takeaway from this place. Had a mix of pasta salads they had available that day! Delicious, easy and just what I needed. Fresh, flavorsome and different recipes each day! Will definitely be a top lunch time spot in the future. Good for easy on the go bite but they also have a sit down cafe/restaurant which... More
