Got a kebab it was too thick you could count the few bits you would get. The meat was dry but the nice part was the chips. Everyone enjoyed theres but mine was just disappointing.

This place has its positives and negatives. It is quite a popular place in town so therefore nearly always packed. It is sometimes hard to find a seat there. I personally don’t think the restaurant is wheelchair friendly as it is packed full with tables...More

Busy place especially at lunch. Great choices from toasted sandwiches to chips and soups and wraps or just a quick coffee. Very reasonablely priced too. Would recommend for a lunch.
