The initial sweet cinnamon aroma and friendly staff were very welcoming. I tried the Arabic meat ball and the shawarma bowl and both tasted fresh and delicious. For the price, Loka is definitely one of the best deals on Baker Street. I would definitely go...More

Tried their wraps & found them very good. Very warm in restaurant, no air conditioning so got a table outside.

Most excellent lunch! 2 people had shwarma and 1 had the kofta. I had the Palestinian pizza. All were very tasty. The flavours were new to us and delicious. Very reasonably priced.

Visited Loka several times since it's opening. I'm a big fan of the gyro bowl, haloumi wrap and spice lamb flatbread. The drinks are top notch, with generous pours of dynamic cocktails for refreshment (the Bazaar) and sippers (the Kama Loka). Prices are very reasonable...More
