I am a regular visitor here before visiting The Old Joint Stock Theatre next door. They serve a lovely selection of Turkish and Arabic hot and cold drinks. Also delicious snacks, both savoury and sweet, the selection of baklava in particular are delicious.

Great food, great decor, great service! All of their restaurants are amazing and serve the same delicious food. Definitely worth a trip! My boyfriend orders lunch from here on Deliveroo every Friday and he is obsessed!
